"Mario Balotelli" is a song by grime crew Ruff Sqwad. The song is taken from their EP 2012. It was released on 24 January 2012 as a digital download.


The song came into fruition when Slix had the idea of using Mario Balotelli's iconic phrase "Why Always Me?" as a chorus in a song to make a "Mario Balotelli anthem".[1]

Tinchy Stryder said in an interview with The Sun: "Mario Balotelli is a real cool guy and he likes his music, too. "Mario’s the type of character that the Premier League hasn't really had. He’s got a good heart and does a lot of good things. I can sympathize to his "Why Always Me?" situation, he is always in the news media for various reasons."[2]

Music video[edit]

"Mario Balotelli" music video was filmed on 15 January 2012 and was uploaded to YouTube on 17 January 2012 at a total length of four minutes and twenty-five seconds.[3][4]
