With his new single "Somebody Else," featuring Nicki Minaj, on the move, R&B singer Mario has secured a release date for his first album in nearly four years.

Mario broke the news during an appearance on New York radio station Hot 97 Tuesday, telling Angie Martinez that the album will drop September 17.

"I'm working man. I'm working," Mario said of the new album and return to music. "This single in particular is something I'm excited about because it's reminiscent of where I started at in my career."
