He played it yesterday and said it's been #1 in the US for "8 or 9 weeks". I'm clueless, and frankly thought it was rather bland. Gaz will know the chart scoop, I'm sure.

he mentioned some song he's going to play that's number one here, and said i'd know all about it (since i'm american). mario, "let me love you." i've never heard it. but i suppose i will soon...

Actually, it's one of the few singles that's really impressed me this year so far.  I *hated* Mario's previous hit -- a needless and misguided cover of Biz Markie's "Just a Friend" sans the humor -- so I wasn't expecting to like this one at all.  But something about that backing track with what sounds like concerned waterfowl just engages me like aural crack.
