New Music: Bruno Mars – ’24K Magic’
It’s showtime! Guess who’s back again?
Nearly four years since his last album and two Super Bowl halftime performances later, Bruno Mars sets the party off with his new single “24K Magic” (pronounced twenty-four karat magic). And boy does he deliver. The synth-heavy track features a heavy dose of retro funk. Donning cuban links and designer minks, Bruns gets down to business on the dance floor.
“Put your pinky rings up to the moon / What ya’ll tryna do? / 24K magic in the air,” he sings on the infectious hook.
“24K Magic” serves as the first single and title track off Bruno’s third album, the follow-up to 2012’s Unorthodox Jukebox, due Nov. 18. The nine-track set is now available for pre-order on iTunes.
Check out the vintage cover art and listen to Bruno’s next No. 1 smash below.
In the video, which dropped moments after the song, Bruno takes over Las Vegas. From the moment his private jet lands at the MGM Grand, he gets the party going. Clad in Versace, Bruno and his Hooligans have tons of fun driving drive down the Strip in a convertible and riding through a casino in motorized scooters while throwing money in the air.
Of course, there are also plenty of bikini-clad babes for all the playas. And like a true baller, he even rides a jet ski through the Bellagio fountains. Look out!
