Critical reception[edit]

Andy Colleman from allmusic says "bearing a definite resemblance to J. Holiday's gently rocking and swaying "Bed"".[1]

Aaron Fields from KSTW.com says "This is one of the standout beats on this album. Talk about bumpin' this is the one to bump right here. A nice mid-tempo track with much bass. You'll want to put this one on repeat. His voice sounds great on this track and the arrangement is on point once again".[2]

Music video[edit]

Mario announced that he would be shooting the video for "Music for Love" and it was rumored that Karina Smirnoff of Dancing with the Stars would appear in the video. However, as of July 2008 there was still no news of a music video for the song. Later it was revealed that there would be no video for "Music For Love" since Mario was working on his fourth album titled D.N.A.
