From Pop to R&B

Washington, D.C, District of Columbia Jul 10, 2023 (Issuewire.com) – DMV native blind singer/song writer and fitness model, Mario Bonds, has managed to capture the attention of music enthusiasts with his latest release, “Chocolate”. As the first R&B song written and released by Bonds, the soulful love song, accompanied by an enthralling music video, celebrates Bonds’ proud realization that there is much beauty in the chocolate-colored skin for which he was bullied as a child. Chocolate is a bold and sexy love ballad with vocals and ultra D’Angelo-esque visuals that positioned Bonds as R&B’s new crooner and heartthrob.

Released on July 7, 2023, “Chocolate” instantly immerses listeners in a world of passion and emotion as Bonds plays on aspects of his dark, chocolate skin and physique as objects of deep desire. From the very first note, his velvety smooth voice resonates with incredible depth, drawing listeners in and making you feel every word of the powerful lyrics. The chorus, featuring the captivating lyrics “I know what you want. I know what you need. And you’ll get your love with chocolate,” serves as an anthem to love, offering a tantalizing promise of fulfillment.

“I vividly remember how the American Idol judges agreed I was talented but still rejected me. Chocolate has given me the opportunity to live in my musical talent as a song writer and vocalist and the freedom of physical expression in whatever I look like.” Said Bonds.

Accompanying this song of romance is an equally captivating video with visuals that amplify the enchanting atmosphere created by Bonds’ vocals. Through artful cinematography that highlights the fitness model’s rippling physique but offers no display of his face, the video brings to life the essence of passion, infusing it with a touch of mystery and allure that arrests viewers from start to finish.

“I found it interesting that I was bullied for being dark-skinned as a child, but as an adult, this attribute is the number one thing found attractive about me. So when given the direction to go into R&B, it seemed only fitting to celebrate my chocolate skin. I wrote “Chocolate” to give an anthem to brown/chocolate brothers and sisters.” Said Bonds, “Being blind shouldn’t act as a barrier in modeling nor entertainment, nor should I have ever lived in the idea that I wasn’t good enough. Chocolate is sexy. I can’t tell you how many people who crazily find it hard to believe that I am totally blind because I’m muscular. So Chocolate is a bold, soulful play on all of it.”

Mario Bonds, despite being totally blind, continues to break barriers in entertainment with his unceasing ability to push the envelope. His dedication to creating soul-stirring music has earned him a loyal and ever-growing fan base. With “Chocolate,” Bonds once again proves that his abilities transcend physical limitations, instilling emotions and weaving connections through the power of his music.
