 Mario Winans - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mario Winans is an RandB and gospel music producer, writer, and singer.
The first single "I Don't Wanna Know" was based on a sample of the Fugees' 1996 hit single "Ready Or Not", which itself was based on a slowed-down sample of the instrumental track "Boadicea" by Enya from her 1987 self-titled album.
Enya and her representatives became annoyed since 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.

 Mario Winans : Hurt No More - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
That person is Mario Winans, whose return as a solo artist was announced by a Top Five single that is literally haunted by the spirit of Enya circa 1987.
Winans has experience making a wide range of music for others, but he excels most at creating slow, sophisticated grooves for himself.
Winans doesn't wear the few occurrences of harder-edged material so well -- "Pretty Girl Bullsh*t," featuring an ill-matched verse from Foxy Brown, is particularly out of character and disrupts the lush, sensual flow of the record.

 R&B producer Mario Winans on collaboration and Hurt No More
Although Winans was recently a breakout hit artist on MTV and VH1, his esteemed career behind the mixing board predates his center-stage momentum as lead man on Hurt No More, the chart-breaking album released on P. Diddy's Bad Boy imprint this year.
Clearly, it is Winans' time to shine, with a cadre of songs exposing the tenor voice of a man going through hard times with his lady.
Although Winans' hip-hop pursuits are distinctly secular, many of his sounds contain the dramatic cues of a contemporary gospel hit — from the orchestral drama of “I Don't Wanna Know” to the backing vocal harmonies and praiselike keyboard tones on “How I Made It,” achieved with favorite pieces such as the Roland Juno-106.

 Compare Prices and Read Reviews on Hurt No More [PA] - Mario Winans at Epinions.com
The sticker is a bit misleading because the multi-talented Winans doesn’t use vulgar language and truth be told, if it weren’t for a misplaced Foxy Brown guest spot on “Pretty Girl BullSh*t” or an appearance by Black Rob on “This Is The Thanks I Get” then the CD wouldn’t have the sticker.
Mario Winans is a wonderful singer, a gifted writer and a beyond-belief producer that is finally getting his due as the artist he’s always been.

Mario Winans got picked up by Bad Boy some time ago, and that led to him singing and producing many tracks for Diddy and company, like "I Need a Girl Part II".
It's not that Winans isn't talented; he's an accomplished performer who should have made a much better record than "Hurt No More." A safe collection of standard randb with a few hip hop kicks, the CD never rises beyond the predictable and runs awfully low on hooks.
Mario Winans comes from a family full of musicians.
