R&B singer Mario is digging deep into his personal life and sharing strong messages with his new “Care For You” music video. The new Khufu Najee-directed visual shows the “Empire” star playing a therapist reflecting on important periods throughout his childhood.
Care For You is a different kind of song, one that highlights Mario’s relationship with love as a man in this day and age. The touching video, directed by Khufu Najee, sees Mario going in a different direction, instead of professing his love for a woman, he’s speaking on the love he learned to have for himself, playing a therapist who’s reflecting on important periods throughout his childhood.
Mario’s ability to connect with his fans has come from the depth and authenticity he has always shown in his music throughout his career. It’s that connection with fans that inspired Mario to create this visual and send a message of self-love, healing, and encouragement for people to reach out and ask for help. On this important topic, Mario has teamed up with The Equitas Project to continue to spread awareness, particularly within minority communities where people don’t always have easy access to the care and support that they need to thrive and enjoy good mental health.
Care For You is the second single from Mario’s fifth studio album, Dancing Shadows, which debuted at #1 on the iTunes R&B/Soul chart. Mario is currently on the mega-popular Millennium Tour alongside B2K, and is gearing up for the season premiere of the hit TV series, Empire in his recurring guest role as the rising R&B star, DeVon.
