Music World/Sanctuary Urban Management in Los Angeles has added R&B singer Mario to a roster of clients that includes Nelly, Destiny's Child, Jadakiss, Eve, Mary J. Blige, Angie Stone and Floetry.

Mario is the current Billboard Hot 100 chart king with "Let Me Love You," which holds at No. 1 for the fifth straight week. His recently-released sophomore album, "Turning Point" (J), debuted at No. 13 last month and has a sales total of 580,000 U.S. copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

"Besides being extremely talented, he has his head and his heart in the right place, plus he's hungry for the success and a long term career," says the company's president Mathew Knowles in a statement.

This is the latest of many recent signings for Sanctuary Urban, which acquired Tony Davis Management, MJB Management and Philadelphia-based firm Erving Wonder last year.

Mario was previously handled by manager Troy Patterson.
