Fresh off the release of his “Somebody Else” video featuring Nicki Minaj, Mario busts out his best falsetto for his latest single, “Fatal Distraction” off his upcoming album Evolve which hits shelves in October. The smooth R&B track has Mario singing about feigning on that “You Got It Bad” type level Usher was giving us back in the day. Unfortunately for Mario, the lady in question isn’t feeling him in that way, so he sings his little broken heart out.
I’ve been wondering, if you think of me or the ways I think of you
If the shoe was on the other foot, would it be a pair or two
I’ve been wondering if I’d played my cards, would they just fold?
If you take the chance and show your hand, we gotta play no more
Earlier this year, when he was asked by Cocoafab if he’s ever had a fatal distraction, he responded:
On if he’s had a fatal distraction:
Yeah I have. Wow. It was my ex-manager’s ex-girlfriend. So it was a really bad situation. And that sort of influenced this song a little bit.
