  Single: Mario Winans - Never Really Was
Updated 31 August 2004, 16.57
Mario Winans review
Release date 30 August 2004

Style: A hip-hop meets classical, meets Rn'B affair that samples Madonna's "Papa Don't Preach."

Lyrics: Poor Mario. His lady has played him for a fool, and this mid-tempo song has him begging for some much needed answers.

Questions like "Why would you play with my heart?" are sung with so much passion, you can practically feel his pain.

Will you still be humming it next week? Maybe. It's a little heartbreaking, but the beat is kind of cool.

Chart worthiness: Straight into the top 20

Nr rating:

Three out of four

What do YOU think of Mario Winans's single?

This is much better than I Don't Wanna Know. I like the bit at the beginning with all of those violins.

Mario Winans No1 hit I Don't Wanna Know got me so annoyed as after five listens to the song it got boring I even thought about taking it back to the shop. His new single is rubbish I got bored of this the same way as I Don't Wanna Know except it took me seeing the video that made me bored of this single!!

I think it's rubbish! It hasn't got a good beat and it's not a song that you sing along to. I think the video is complete rubbish.

I like this song. It's very catchy - it's better than his other song I Don't Wanna Know. I give it 4/5.
Caitlin, 13, Hemel Hempstead

I think it's really boring. I would get bored of it after two listens, like I Don't Wanna Know.
David, 12, Cardiff

I don't really like this - I preferred the first single 'coz this is really bland.
Farah, 14, Leicester

I have seen the video. It cannot beat I Don't Wanna Know as it is not very good.
