Song prefaces the fall release of the singer’s first album in nine years, ‘Dancing Shadows’
Mario, the Grammy Award-nominated voice behind the R&B/pop hits “Let Me Love You” and “Just a Friend,” is back with a new single. “Drowning,” whose video exclusively premieres today (July 20) on Billboard, is from Mario’s long-awaited fifth studio album Dancing Shadows.
Mario’s signature tenor and its soaring falsetto shimmer against a sultry track that tells the story of a man grappling with the age-old struggle between infatuation and lust versus love. “I’m sinking, I’m not swimming,” sings a torn Mario. “Please stop me from drowning.”
