CD Review: Grammy Nominated Bruno Mars' "Doo-Wop" Debut
His album begins with his hit #1 single "Grenade." The song's chorus is perfect for pop radio and has been compared to Michael Jackson's "Dirty Diana." The album just get better with the up-tempo beats of "Just The Way You Are" which also reached #1 on the Billboard singles chart. Mars slows down for "Our First Time" which shows us his maturity in song-writing. Mars picks up his guitar and rocks out on "Runaway Baby" and finds the rock groove for "The Lazy Song." Mars also invites a few guests to help out including Damien Marley on the reggae groove of "Liquor Store Blues" and Cee Lo Green on the motown injected album closer "The Other Side."
"Doo-Wop & Hooligans" debuted at #3 on the Billboard album charts and continues to sell well. After the Grammys, Bruno Mars will be overseas selling out shows through March. Check out his website brunomars.com for tour dates, videos, merchandise and more.
