Bruno Mars took home the 2016 Grammy award for Record of the Year at the 2018 Grammy Awards tonight, winning for his song “24K Magic.”
After coming onstage to the tune of his own track, Mars joked, “Come on, play [the song] again, turn it up one more time! Too many ballads tonight!”
Continuing, he thanked his “partner in crime,” Atlantic Records COO Julie Greenwald, and “his lady,” Jessica, as well as his fans
Since the release of his hit album 24K Magic in late 2016, Bruno Mars has pretty much been on tour.
And now, Billboard has shared the numbers for his massive trek, which lands at close to a quarter of a billion dollars. Yep, Mars has made $200 million and sold just over two million tickets, so far.
If Bruno Mars and Cardi B’s colorful music video for “Finesse” feels familiar, that’s because it’s supposed to.
The video — both sonically and visually — is steeped in euphoric nostalgia for shows like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and In Living Color, as well as an era of music when acts like Salt-N-Pepa, New Edition and Janet Jackson ruled the airwaves, blasting radio with a funky hybrid of hip hop, R&B, dance, freestyle and new jack swing sounds.
In 2016, Mars’ album 24K Magic — as well as his current single (and its delightful Cardi B-assisted remix) — payed homage to the gold chains and color-blocked threads of late ’80s, early ’90s hip hop, including its energetic, dance-oriented soundscapes and unrelenting beats.
