Rare Gem: Mario “If I Want Her” (Eventually Recorded by Joe)
The rare gem that we’re highlighting today is a song by rnb singer Mario called “If I Want Her” that currently remains unreleased. The reason it was and will never be released is because the song ended up getting recorded by Joe and was included on his album “Aint Nothin Like Me” in 2007. Mario was presumably recording the Sean Garrett written song for his album “Go” that released that same year, but there is no word on why he didn’t keep it for himself. Either way, it’s cool to hear artists from two different generations record the song and see the differences.
Currently, Mario is working on the release of his new album called “Never 2 Late” for later in 2016. This is his first album as an independent artist after parting ways with RCA Records. We recently released an article discussing the rnb artists from Mario’s generation and how many fell from the mainstream so rapidly.
In the meantime, Joe is working towards a new album which we expect to release at some point in 2016. The project will be the follow up to “Bridges”.
