Mario teased fans with an up-tempo record titled “I Need More” over the summer, which spawned a lot of buzz and left his dedicated fans craving for more music. The official song is Mario’s first official single release, from a studio album, in three years and is a contagious record that is sure to fulfill those who have eagerly awaited new music. The mesmerizing record opens with a gloomy and chilling production that quickly transitions to a vibrant island feel that will have you grooving throughout. Mario flaunts his charisma in this song by pleading by with a love interest letting her know that although he is aware that she is self sufficient, he desires to be there to help her love again.
Mario told The Fader:
“R&B needs to feel cool and fun again. A simple conversation, catchy melody and a story that draws in my listeners is what I feel like “Let Me Help You” does. There is enough music about egotistical perceptions and not enough about love especially in urban music. Love is still cool to me!”
