Fatal Distraction

Album: Restoration (2013)
  • This yearning ballad was released as the second single from Mario's Restoration album. It finds Mario attracted to his best friend's girlfriend, who is proving to be a fatal distraction.

    "I'm telling you how bad I want you
    I'm telling you the bad I won't do
    It's bad that I don't have you, like I want to."

    The song was inspired by a real life situation in which Mario was dating his manager's ex-girlfriend. He explained to Baltimore's 92Q Jams: "It just talks about the distractions and temptations and the infatuation that can have on a man when it comes to a woman."
