(Hype) Multi-platinum R&B heartthrob Mario and his summer smash hit "Break Up" claims the #1 spot on this week's Urban Mainstream Chart. The video for the hit single remains a top 5 favorite on BET's 106 & Park, peaking at #1 for several days last week.

With sells of over 40,000 ringtones per week, "Break Up" is #4 on this week's Ringscan chart, joining the top 5 along with Drake's "Best I Ever Had," Jason Aldean's "Big Green Tractor," New Boyz "You're a Jerk" and Mariah Carey's "Obsessed." The success of "Break Up" paves the way to the October 13th release of Mario's brand new album D.N.A.

Described as a collection of songs that characterize the make up of the now 22 year old Baltimore native's life, D.N.A. resonates with topics of love, relationships, and heartbreak; replete with a versatile yet distinctive Mario sound that critics and fans have grown to adore. A-List producers and writers delivering top notch production include Sean Garret & Bangladesh, Jim Jonsin, Tricky Stewart & The Dream, Babyface, Stargate, LOS Da Mystro, Rico Love, Harold Lilly & Elvis Williams, The Runners, Eric Hudson, KP and Malay.

Mario came to acclaim at the age of 15 when he released his self-titled debut in 2002 which spawned the Top 10 single "Just a Friend (2002)." His follow-up album, 2004's Turning Point, featured the mega hit "Let Me Love You," which skyrocketed to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, where it stayed for five weeks, propelling Turning Point to worldwide double-platinum status and earning Mario two Grammy nominations and two Billboard wins. Mario's December 2007 release of Go marked his third Top 5 debut on Billboard's R&B Album chart and featured the hit singles "How Can I Breathe" and "Crying Out For Me."
