Mario Dewar Barrett (born August 27, 1986), known mononymously as Mario, is an American R&B singer-songwriter, actor, dancer and model. He is best known for his singles “Just a Friend 2002” (2002) and “Let Me Love You” (2004), which won him two Billboard awards, as well as for appearing in the films Step Up and Freedom Writers. He has released four studio albums: Mario (2002), Turning Point (2004), Go (2007), and D.N.A. (2009). At the end of the 2000s decade, Mario was ranked by Billboard #98 on their “Artist of the Decade” list.

Mario began recording his debut album entitled Mario in July 2001, nearly a year before releasing it in March 2002. The album's lead single “Just a Friend 2002”, which was a cover of Biz Markie's hit, was an instant success, peaking at #1 on the charts. Follow up singles were “Braid My Hair” and “C'mon” . He was the opening act on the Scream Tour 3, which featured B2K, Marques Houston, Nick Cannon, Jhen Aiko, and AJA. As of 2006, his debut album has sold over 700,000 copies. During this period, he became a draw in the teen market.

After his debut album was released, Mario wanted to record an album that was more mature. He enlisted a number of well-known producers to help him, such as Scott Storch & Lil' Jon. He released his second album, Turning Point on December 7, 2004. The album was more successful than his first, mainly because of the hit single “Let Me Love You”. The single, described by reviewers as “melodic and sweetly lilting, reminiscent of Michael Jackson's vintage romantic ballads” was successful, peaking at the number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for nine consecutive weeks. The single is written by Ne-Yo. Other follow up singles include “How Could You” co-written by J. Valentine, with a cameo appearance in the video by rapper Cassidy; “Here I Go Again” (whose video starred model/singer Cassie) and “Boom” featuring Juvenile. To date, Turning Point has sold platinum and the lead single double-platinum.
