MARIO SNAGS LILLY, DR. LUKE, SPLASH FOR NEW ALBUM
R&B crooner Mario Barrett is currently recording the follow-up to his 2007 album, “Go”, and among the songs slotted for inclusion on the new project is entitled “Forever and Ever”. The track was co-written by Harold Lilly (Craig David, Toni Braxton), and co-produced by Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald (Kelis Rogers, Alecia Moore) and Jack Splash (Estelle Swaray, Solange Knowles).
Lilly previously collaborated with Barrett on the Akon produced “Do Right”, and with Splash by crafting Alicia Keys’ “Wreckless Love” and “Teenage Love Affair”. On the other hand, “Forever and Ever” marks the second placement between Splash and Dr. Luke as their initial effort was via the Cathy Dennis penned “All The Way” – a song that was helmed during the Britney Spears’ “Blackout” recording sessions, but didn’t make the album.
