The Magic moment has arrived. Bruno Mars unleashes his third album to retailers worldwide today.
The long-awaited follow-up to 2012’s Unorthodox Jukebox is here with plenty of funk, hip-hop, and R&B flavor for fans who’ve so far enjoyed the top 10 smash “24K Magic,” “Chunky,” and the slow jam “Versace on the Floor.”
Delivering nine tracks full of “bounce,” Bruno unveils ’90s-inspired cuts like “Perm,” “Finesse,” “That’s What I Like,” and “Calling All My Lovelies” featuring a voicemail from Halle Berry. Each of them, he’s said, is like a song from a soundtrack.
“With this album, I wanted to make a movie,” he told Beats 1 earlier this month. “A real movie. I told myself, ‘We’re gonna have a screenplay and we’re gonna go to that.'”
Bruno will open the American Music Awards on Sunday, but fans will have to wait until 2017 to see him on tour. His “24K Magic World Tour” kicks off March 18 in Belgium before coming to the U.S. in July.
