For those who think Bruno Mars is strictly a pop artist, you might want to reconsider that assessment thanks to potential new single, Natalie. Sure, the latest featured effort from Mars’ sophomore album still has his undeniably catchy vibe, but the Hawaiian crooner deviates just slightly from his normal upbeat, breezy style to an addictively darker mood. Mars’ production team The Smeezingtons and co-producer Benny Blanco craft a clapping beat over which Mars vows to get revenge on a scheming girl named Natalie. In addition to the overcast tone, Mars also flexes his artistic muscle, showing some serious fire with a powerful vocal performance. Mars’ new album, Unorthodox Jukebox which hosts #1 single Locked Out of Heaven, is available now.
