Mario Winans Story Of My Heart
Winans was signed to a production deal in the mid-1990s, with Dallas Austin’s Rowdy Records through producers Tim & Bob. Until his breakthrough came as a Christian songwriter, musician, and co-producer, Mario lived with Tim and Rob in their house studio.
This success came when he worked on “I Can’t Sleep Baby” and “You Remind Me of Something” both by R Kelly (plus three more songs) from the R. Kelly album in 1995. He also worked with Pebbles and 98 Degrees.
Eventually, Winans released his debut album Story of My Heart on Motown in 1997. Apart from the song “Don’t Know”, which reached the US R&B top 50, the album failed to chart.
Mario Winans I Don’t Wanna Know | Mario Winans Hurt No More
Hurt No More, was Winans’ second album which he recorded in 2001, 2002, and 2003 in between working with other artists. The album is founded on stories of love and betrayal. I Don’t Wanna Know, its first single, was based on a sample of a 1996 hit single Ready or Not, by the Fugees. The Fugees themselves had sampled the instrumental track Boadicea by Enya from her 1987 self-titled album and simply slowed it down.
Mario Winans Enya
Enya and her representatives became angry when Winans did not seek her approval for the sample, as he was unaware that the Fugees sample he had used had itself been a sample. In order to come to an agreement credit of the single was shared as Mario Winans featuring P. Diddy and Enya.
I Don’t Wanna Know was released as the single in early 2004 and became a worldwide hit. It reached number 1 in Germany and the United Kingdom and on the rhythmic top 40 radio chart in the United States; to number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the US R&B/Hip-Hop singles chart; and to number 3 on Norwegian and Australian singles charts. The single also ranked up to the top ten on a composite European singles chart.
