R&B sensation, Mario, best known for his debut single ‘Just A Friend’, stops by Nick Cannon Mornings to talk about his role in ‘Empire’, his luck with the ladies, and more!

Whether it’s on a TV screen, or on stage, Mario most DEFINITELY has the ladies obsessing over him. Even while performing, women jump on stage and give him lap dances! He urged that he doesn’t invite them on stage but if they make their way up, he isn’t kicking them off. He’s just down for a good time!

In addition to being a “catch,” the smooth singer is most noted for his debut single, ‘Just A Friend’ however…that wasn’t originally his song!

“’Just A Friend’ wasn’t even my single. That was Usher’s single. I don’t know why he turned it down… but I came to L.A. and he played me the record. I was just like, this my swag right here.” 

Guess Usher didn’t admit all his confessions…LOL.

During the close conversation with Nick Cannon, “Rio” also talks about his acting career and role on the hit TV series, ‘Empire.’

“’Empire’ and the character felt like it was tailor-made for me because of the humble beginnings he had, and me kind of implying that from my life to that character.” He explains how his character on ‘Empire’ was a reflection of himself, which was why he was able to relate to his character and bring it life on screen.

“If you make it on stage, you’re going to have your moment.”

Well Mario, you have most certainly had more than a few memorable moments in your career and we cannot wait to witness more!
