So you know Bruno Mars, right? The guy who rose to fame by making every girl believe that there is hope and guys who say you’re…and I quote…”amazing, just the way you are”. Remember him? Guys used the video to earn bonus points and girls were finally happy that a song without the word ass or anything similar had been released. The world loved Bruno. He kept it up with his next song When I Was Your Man. His sweet, sweet voice made us sad that he gave up on his girl and again we all loved him. Now he’s got a new album and somehow, Bruno Mars turned into a magician. Why you ask? Well let me explain…
…whilst still singing in the same sweet and manly yet sensitive voice, singing ballads with instruments which make us believe we’re listening to the sweet old melodies of our dear Bruno, the lyrics of the songs have changed drastically. Now I’m not really one to be all bitter because of the content of the song and that’s not really what I’m saying. My point is that Bruno Mars (or the people who produce his music) managed to keep the sound completely the same, you pick up it’s Bruno instantly, but they have put in stuff that you’d associate with artists like Drake, Robin Thicke, you know all the ones who release songs you won’t want your little children singing along to.
If you haven’t realised this already, have a listen to the two songs I have linked and tell me if my conclusions are right or wrong. I for one fell for the trap and only recently realised this change in dear old sweet Mr.Mars.
