Peaking at #17 on the Billboard Hot 100, the unconventional Break Up was Mario‘s biggest hit since ‘04’s Let Me Love You. With the follow-up single, the singer reaches out to fans of his more traditional R&B balladry in addition to the club crowd. Thinkin About You (an unofficial, Ace Hood-assisted version of which was previously leaked to the ‘net) finds the artist pondering what he’ll do after the party is over and he gets a certain lady into the backseat of his Ferrari. As if Mario’s Trey Songz-esque vocals and Rico Love‘s songwriting weren’t enough to sweep this female off her feet, The Runners heighten the ambiance yet further with a steamy, synth-packed instrumental. Those who like what they’re hearing can find more on Mario’s hotly-anticipated D.N.A. LP (formerly known as And Then There Was Me) when it hits record stores and online retailers Oct. 13th.
