Billboard Thursday: Mario Feat. Gucci Mane & Sean Garrett - "Break Up"

"Let Me Love You" made me HATE Mario. With such burning passion. It was just such a shitty Usher rip-off, and everyone ate it right up. Thankfully, as far as I can remember, he didn't have another hit after that. I could be wrong, feel free to correct me; I havn't exactly been watching the career of Mario too closely.

Well now he's grown up a little bit, and suddenly...his songs don't suck. I guess that's what happens when you get a spectacular beat from Bangladesh and a superb guest spot from Gucci Mane. "Break Up" is a slow jam sent walking through a house of mirrors. Where normally a track like this should let the beat ride, Bangladesh adds an unsettling keyboard line that sets everything off kilter. Where normally your token-slow-jam-singer would be saying how much he loves his girl, Mario explains how much he's loving his girl...through buying her sweet shit. And then talks to her like she's some dumbass for wanting to break up with him when he thinks she's hot, he's buying her things, and she gets laid often. It's all rather logical.

There's just something so twistedly awesome about this song. Mario's response to his girl wanting to leave him is, "Tonight we're gonna get a little tipsy," and then we're going to have sex. That's just HILARIOUS. It's so cocky and so disgusting that it goes full circle and becomes wonderful.

Check the song below, and enjoy it as much as I do.
