.OHYESMARIO brought back his greatest hits to raise money for MFPLA in his BillboardLive At-Home performance.
Mario let fans love his old hits once more for his Billboard Live-At Home performance Wednesday (May 20) to raise money for My Friend's Place.
, which helps young people experiencing homelessness -- a near and dear cause to the singer."Growing up in Baltimore... I almost was homeless at one point as a kid," he confessed."And I got adopted right before everything got like crazy. A lot of people may not know this, but I got adopted when I was 13 years old in Baltimore, and I ended up moving to Jersey."
Before this coronavirus pandemic, Mario was supposed to be on the move, from going to a new home to releasing new music to heading on tour. But he refuses to describe this"bittersweet" moment as a"setback.""This is a time for us to regroup, a time for us to focus on things we haven't had time to focus on, maybe chill with family more, spend more time with friends, or find a new passion," he advised. The R&B singer spends his time these days meditating, releasing new music, learning to edit his own videos and starting a new interview series called"The Conversation Is Everything."
But everything fans loved about Mario back in the day came flooding right back during his nostalgia-inducing set, which began with his No. 4 Hot 100 hit"Just a Friend 2002." The 33-year-old singer asked how old fans were when the song came out, which ranged from 8 years old to 17 and"sneaking out your parents' crib to go see your bae" to 21 and"in the club before me dancing to my sh-- ," considering Mario was only 15 at the time.
"A crazy story about that song is that when I first heard the song, I was pretty much 90% done with my first album.... And my A&R walks the song into the building. And he's like, 'Yo, I got this record. It's a smash, but you gotta fly to LA and work with Warryn Campbell and Harold Lilly,'" he recalled."So we went to LA, they didn't tell me the story behind the song first.... I record the song then afterwards, they play me another version. And it happens to be
Usheron the song. So 'Just a Friend' was Usher's single before it was mine." Read more: billboard »
