Mario is back.
The 30-year-old R&B star has unleashed the video for new single ‘I Need More’ – the lead release from his long-awaited fifth studio album.
It’s been a roller-coaster ride for the singer, who has been actively trying to release a body of work for almost five years.
Now independent and signed to his own New Citizen imprint, riding solo seems to suit him well.
Because, as you’ll see after the jump, the visual scintillatingly cinematic effort.
Watch the Ruby directed clip, which Mario conceptualised himself, after the jump…
In an era of effort-starved videos, it’s refreshing to see an act – especially an Urban male – put forth such a cool creative.
The song is by no means earth-shattering and purposely blends into the mix of what’s currently hot. But that’s hardly a drawback, particularly for an indie act looking to make waves sans the muscle of the major label machine.
Welcome back, Mario.
