“Pop pop it’s showtime…showtime…guess who’s back again…oh they don’t know?…oh they don’t know?…I bet they know as soon as we walk in…(24K Magic)”
Bruno Mars is back with his new album 24K Magic. It does not have alot of songs, but there is a huge sound happening.
24K Magic is only 9 tracks, but Bruno makes every one of them count. The album is like a journey through musical time. It goes through Funk, Soul, R&B, a hint of New Jack Swing, & some good ol’ grooves from the sounds of the last few decades. He does it in a way that is nostalgic, yet doesn’t sound like he’s trying to hard. He & his production team succeeded in creating a virtual time capsule that has something for everybody. There is his usual swagger that has sent his songs up the charts, as well as some slower jams to two step & slow dance to. As many different sounds are featured on the album, it is not all over the place. It all still flows into one complete work. He starts with the hit title track & flows out with a ballad about trying to hold onto love. I can’t wait to see more visuals from the album. He ain’t real if there isn’t plenty of smoke machines, silk pajamas, & rides in the car. Gotta capture the eras he is paying homage to. I have been really enjoying the album since it came out. It will go so hard live, which Bruno does anyway.
24K Magic is currently available at all digital music streaming & retailers. Listen to the song That’s What I Like below:
