Critical reception[edit]

From Contactmusic.com there are two different reviews one from Candice Finney that stats:"This track is so funky and so much better than his first outing with “Let me love you”. Mario has come back with a sort of Michael Jackson style tune with hints of Usher’s “Bad Boy” track. I mean he can certainly dance like them".What I love about this song is that it kicks ass, its pure R&B and he’s certainly a superstar when it comes to writing about his feelings. Talking about yet another girl, this track is more than likely to do brilliantly in the charts; he’s a good – looking lad and I’m sure his fan base is full of screaming girlies! I actually predict this track to have a number one!![2]

Other from JAZZILY that rates the single three out of five stars saying "Rocking back with his second single ‘Here I Go Again’ is another ‘Turning Point’ for Mario, however it works! ‘Here I Go Again’ dynamic co-mingling of R&B with the edginess of pop rock, largely thanks to the sample from “Grease”. Mario’s voice beautifully overpowers the songs subtle, yet harsh guitar sound making it an exciting diverse sound".[3]

Music video[edit]

The video was directed by Ray Kay, Costumed designed by June Ambrose and starred model and R&B singer Cassie,[4] the corography was made by YA Boy Flash. On the week of, 7 April 2005 the music video premiered on MTV.[5] Mario alternately confronts and romances a sexy woman in "Here I Go Again." The couple's tumultuous relationship plays out in such locations as the streets of New York City, on a rooftop, in a taxi and on a watery stage in front of a truck. Also included are a few choreographed dance set-ups.[6]
