About Just a Friend 2002

"Just a Friend 2002" is a R&B single by Mario. It is the first single from his first studio album Mario which was a loose cover of Biz Markie's hit, "Just a Friend". Mario's version is quite different, as the story is changed from a man who discovers his girlfriend has been cheating on him, to a story about unrequited love. The single was released in February 2002. The single was produced by Warryn "Baby Dubb" Campbell and written by Warryn "Baby Dubb" Campbell, Harold Lilly, John Smith and Biz Markie. It outperformed Markie's 1989 version on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at #4, while Markie's peaked at #9. It was covered by Kidz Bop Kids from their album, Kidz Bop 3.
