And he's heating things up with this shirtless shot. We see you Mario.
Inside, Mario talks about gearing up to make a splash on the music scene. He dishes on the evolution of his new music, his new sound, his new music label and more:
The highlight for me would be re-introducing myself to my audience again. There’s a new generation of fans and then the ones who grew up with you. It’s about grabbing the attention of the new fans but also reminiscing with the ones who have been with me since day one. There are so many platforms these days, so how people connect is different. It’s bigger than just the music, and that’s what makes it exciting for me; to have all these ideas about things I want to do outside of music that are going to make my brand and journey more iconic.
