Are we getting “Closer” to a new Mario album? The R&B veteran’s new single is a pretty strong indicator.
Employing a knocking bassline, the Baltimore native utilizes this bedroom-ready jam to tell his woman that he wants to have a meeting in the sheets.
Even though the crooner is known for his breathtaking falsetto, he shifts vocal gears like a five-speed sports car throughout the erotic tune. Still, he teases his range towards the end.
“I think me and you should skip the foreplay / Baby, I’ve been waiting on you all day / Honestly, I think we had enough space, girl,” he coos.
“Closer” is seemingly the first glimpse of new sounds from Mario since 2018’s Dancing Shadows. In between his fifth album, he’s released a video for “Care for You” and a 20th anniversary edition of his big hit “Let Me Love You.”
