Following the Verzuz hoopla created by Ray J, Sammie, Bobby V, and Pleasure P, the R&B singers teased their new supergroup RSVP. Now, Grammy-nominated singer and fellow Verzuz participant Mario is giving his two cents. Throughout a sitdown at Femme It Forwards D.C. concert, the Baltimore native shared his opinion about his comrades joining forces and living out their musical group dreams.
I believe its likely to be fire, the R&B crooner exclusively expressed to VIBE. Guess what happens Im saying? I cant wait to listen to the music. Ray J was telling me last week when I was in the A, Ray J was like, Yeah, nia, we focusing on some sh*t, Im gonna play you some music. Im like, Fine, yeah, okay. Fire.’
When asked who Mario would deem talented enough to become listed on his ideal R&B supergroup, he named the best vocalists of R&B today. Four people? Four total? he asked while thinking. Damn, thats crazy. Like anybody? (laughs) Okay, so, me, Chris [Brown], Usher, and Lucky Daye.
Chris Brown, Usher, Lucky Daye, and Mario have all shown to be top-tier vocalists and dedicated performers. Breezy happens to be embarking his ONE OF THESE Ones Tour with Lil Baby; Usher is featured in a viral NPR Tiny Desk episode; and Lucky Daye has announced the European tour for his acclaimed Candy Drip album. Mario has just finished up several shows over the nation and contains dropped his new single Main One with Tory Lanez.
For RSVP, the singers created their official Instagram account and dropped what is apparently album cover artwork. The other day, Sammie shared footage from the groups latest photoshoot on Instagram. Yall ever seen an organization have rehearsal for an image shoot theyre having tomorrow? #RSVP DID!!! @officialrsvp, reads the posts caption. Sidebar: I snuck out the studio and left unannounced.
