Bruno Mars New Single “24K Magic” is What We’ve Been Waiting For!


Break out your silk shorts and boat shoes – Bruno Mars just dropped a new single, “24K Magic” and it is all we’ve been waiting for and more!

After a whirlwind of success with Unorthodox Jukebox, a residency in Las Vegas, and an unforgettable Super Bowl halftime appearance with Coldplay and Beyoncé, the singer took a much-needed break to work on some new music.

But after four years of waiting…THE BRUNZ IS BACK!

Most artists come out with a mainstream album and then come into their own, and Bruno Mars has shown us he’s a funkmaster in his own rite. “24K Magic” is 80s funky fresh with the typical braggart style we’ve come to know and love from the pop singer. I can hear a lot of Morris Day and the Time in the lyrics, and to my delight, a video is already out, letting me know I was correct. (It also seems to me as if Mars was influenced a bit by some trap music styling in his use of verbiage and ad libs.) The solid gold pimp vibe that manages to not actually be creepy is in full effect. The track gives me heavy Zapp & Roger vibes, and poppers near and far will have this jam on repeat. It helps that Mars and his band are known for being cool cats who also happen to be hilarious, and viewers are in for a good time just watching the band enjoy themselves. Looks like the fellas had a great time in Vegas!

If this is a precursor to his new album, there’s so much to be excited for!

Hope Carter
Hailing from "Screwston," Texas, Hope has been immersed in music since birth, first being exposed to Motown by her parents, then discovering her love for all genres as she trained as a dancer. Her unique set of life experiences growing up in Houston's Historic Third Ward as a lower middle class child, attending schools in more affluent neighborhoods, all the while attending an international church in which she was very involved, created her open-minded approach to music and art. Hope is very socially conscious, and prefers to take songs as a whole - both lyrically and sonically - before making her final judgment on their quality. As a dancer, she is inclined to be interested to anything she can move to, but her Dirty South roots give her room to appreciate a more laidback, chill (screwed) vibe. Her taste in music continues to change as she discovers new artists and as genres evolve.
