R&B singer and former Dancing With The Stars star Mario has been busy prepping the follow up to 2007’s “GO” and wants you to know it’s nothing like anything he’s done before. “This is a very conceptual album” says Mario who is slated to release the as-yet-untitled album soon. “It’s time for my fans to know me through my music. I can’t wait for you to hear the records.” Since his stint on Dancing With The Stars this year Mario has logged time with some of today’s hottest producers including Rodney Jerkins, Polow Da Don, Red One, Jazzy Phae and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. “I have to say I’ve done some real fun things this year but working on my new album has been the highlight. Don’t expect anything you’ve heard before !” Mario’s last effort, “GO” spawned the hit singles “Crying Out For Me” and “Music For Love,” it was also the follow up to 2004’s Platinum-selling album “Turning Point.” Mario’s as-yet-untitled project is due early 2009.
