But has it really been four years since we’ve heard from Bruno Mars?? It actually, surprisingly, has.

Let’s take a look back…

Originally realising fame from his vocals on B.o.B’s hit “Nothin’ On You”, Bruno later went on to release his debut album ‘Doo-Wops and Hooligans’ in 2010. ‘Doo-Wops and Hooligans’ was wildly successful with three tracks hitting top five status on the Billboard Hot 100 including “Just the Way You Are” and “Grenade”.


It was November 2012 when ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’, Mars’ second album was released and we haven’t really heard from him musically, or in any other headline since. This sophomore album did produce a couple of massive tracks that hung around the charts for a while in “Locked Out of Heaven” and “When I Was Your Man”. Then there is of course the exception, his mate Mark Ronson released “Uptown Funk” featuring Bruno in 2014, the lyrics of which we’re only just starting to get out of our heads now, two years later.

Other than that, however, that’s been about it. Bruno Mars is of such a high musical talent and credibility that he can come and go as he pleases. And for fans who’ve been waiting, his reign is about to return..
