"Somebody Else" is a song by American R&B singer-songwriter Mario, featuring guest vocals from Trinidadian-born American rapper Nicki Minaj. The song was released in the United States as a digital download on May 21, 2013, on RCA Records. Intended to be a single for his upcoming fifth studio album. However, due to its poorly chart performance, it was later dubbed as a standalone single. The record heavily samples the 1975 song "Remember the Rain", by American R&B group 21st Century.
Through his official Twitter page, on May 17, 2013, he confirmed that he has been working with Polow Da Don, for the track "Somebody Else" featuring rapper Nicki Minaj. R&B singer-songwriter Frank Ocean recorded a demo of the song as did Chris Brown who considered the song for his album Fortune.
The video was filmed on May 25, 2013 and directed by Alexandre Moors. The video premiered on July 8, 2013 on MTV Jams and it was premiered on July 10, 2013 on BET's 106 & Park. The video chronicles the dramatic ending of a relationship as Mario and Nicki square off in the video.
