RnB veteran Mario is back, and wants you to get “Closer.” His new single is an energetic, sensuous ballad and incredibly relatable for the current times as many have had to figure out love in a different way due to the pandemic lockdown. His song expresses wanting to get “Closer” to his love interest.
His accompanying visual for the song represents “the dark yet beautiful path in which an individual can draw a deeper connection to the one they are attracted to.” Mario showcases his creative style, combining silhouettes, eye-popping colors, and fast moving visual effects to get across his point. The imagery represents all of the things we yearn: attraction, intensity, tension, and sensuality for a provocative, moody and visually striking unexpected experience.
Originally from Baltimore, Mario firsts skyrocketed onto the music scene and in our hearts with “Just A Friend 2002” and “Let Me Love You” both winning him two Billboard Music Awards. The Grammy-nominated singer has dropped five studio albums to date, and he isn’t slowing down.
