I am loving this new Bruno Mars song way more than I should be. Any track that takes the instrumental from the Police’s “Message in a Bottle” and mixes it with Michael Jackson “Beat It” era vocals sounds sketchy, but damn it works. I wish the chorus was just a bit more catchy, but the verses more than make up for that.
I’m not sure what the video is supposed to be about outside the performance. Is Bruno a touring pimp?
Bruno’s follow-up to the ubiquitous Doo-Wops and Hooligans is Unorthodox Religion, and it drops on December 11th. If you can’t wait that long for a Bruno Mars fix, he will be the musical guest on this week’s Saturday Night Live.
