A few years ago, if someone asked you if you knew Bruno Mars, you might have thought that they were absolutely crazy. You might have thought that they were pulling your leg, making up comical names to make you laugh.
However, it seems the name “Bruno Mars” is becoming more and more popular in different parts of the world with each passing day.
He sings. He dances. He acts. He plays the guitar and the piano beautifully. Is there anything Bruno Mars can’t do?
From his recent track record, it seems as if the one thing that Bruno Mars can’t do is release an album that doesn’t reach the US Billboard charts.
While it is true Bruno Mars has only released two studio albums, Doo-Wops & Hooligans (2010) and Unorthodox Jukebox (2012), both of those albums have been able to achieve success on a commercial level as well as with some of the toughest critics in the industry.
You probably have already read the reports that Bruno Mars has already started working on his third studio album. It seems if he is overdue for one – especially since Bruno Mars’ first two albums came two years apart.
However, since the release of Unorthodox Jukebox, Bruno has definitely been busy — acting (Rio 2, hosting Saturday Night Live), being chosen to perform during the Super Bowl halftime show alongside the Red Hot Chili Peppers as well as having a successful tour (Moonshine Jungle Tour).
However, even though he has not spent very much time in the studio, you should still get excited now over Bruno Mars’ third studio album instead of waiting for it to come out.
1. His track record speaks for itself. His debut album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans, was certified double-platinum with more than 2.3 million units sold. If you think that is impressive, the fact that Unorthodox Jukebox has sold more than 6 million copies around the world since being released should blow you away!
2. Bruno Mars is an impressive songwriter. Unlike many other performers and singers today, Bruno Mars does not depend on ghostwriters and other producers to come up with great songs for him. Bruno Mars writes his own songs. Keep in mind that he is the lyrical mastermind behind such hits as “Forget You” by Cee-Lo Green, so he has already proven that he can write hits well for himself and other people. There really is no reason to believe that anything would change on his third album – especially since he has already proven his skills on the first two.
3. Bruno Mars brings something brand new to the table. Within the world of R&B and pop music today, it is very hard to find someone with a unique sound and/or take on their music. Think about all of the songs that basically sound the same – even though they are recorded and released by different people. Bruno Mars has been able to stay ahead of the pact by sticking to his own flavor of music that just so happens to taste good to everyone else.
You might decide to deny Bruno Mars the respect he deserves – waiting for his new album to come out before you get excited. Or, you can pay close attention to the fact that Bruno has already proven himself and get excited about what he is going to do now.
The choice is yours.
