Roommates, many artists pride themselves on being the best or in this case “the king”—and R&B singer Mario has come through with a new declaration about his talent and he wants you all to know. During a recent interview, Mario stated that nobody in R&B is touching him when it comes to pure skills.
During a recent interview with Chicago’s WGCI radio station, Mario gave his thoughts on the long-running debate on the King of R&B—and let’s just say that his comments yielded very mixed results from fans.
Mario responded with this:
“It’s just ridiculous. It’s gonna be kind of hard for me to say anything, ’cause people gon’ be like, ‘You ain’t puttin’ music out!’ But it’s like, if we’re talking about just straight, pure skill. We’re not talking about relevance, we’re not talking about who puts out a hundred songs a year. We’re talking about if you give me a mic, you get a mic- there’s nobody f*ckin’ with me. I promise you. I put that on my grave.”
He continued, adding:
“Go listen to my albums…when you hear this new music, I think it’s gonna show you there’s nothing that I can’t do as a writer, as a performer. I’m a quadruple threat. I sing and act at the same d*mn time. I dance. I ain’t gon’ say I’m the best dancer in the game, but I got my own swag…I know who I am as an artist.”
As expected, social media definitely had thoughts regarding Mario’s claims, but he still stands firmly on what he said.
