Hurt No More is the second studio album by R&B singer and musician Mario Winans, released in 2004.

Production[edit]

Winans recorded his second album Hurt No More in 2001, 2002 and 2003 in between his busy schedule working with other artists, mostly on Diddy's Bad Boy label. The album is based on stories of love and betrayal. On his website, Winans says: "This record is about relationships, pure and simple. We all have hearts. Sometimes, we have to look deeper into what we're saying and doing to the people we care about." All of the production work and most of the instrumental work on the album was performed by Winans himself.

The Fugees also sampled this track for their song "Ready or Not" from the album The Score [1]. The song features a rap by P. Diddy and radio programmers and club DJs started playing the track when it started appearing on mixtapes. The song was released as the single in early 2004 and become a worldwide hit going to #1 in Germany and the US Rhythmic Top 40, #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, US R&B/ Hip Hop and world Internet download charts and #3 on a composite world R&B chart (based on the US, UK, Germany, France and Australia), Australian and Norwegian charts. It also reached the top ten of a composite European chart.

Hurt No More was released on April 20, 2004 in the US and as at early June 2004, had reached #1 on the Billboard r&b/hip hop chart, #2 on the US Billboard 200 and #3 on the UK album charts.
