Billboard: Bruno Mars Unveils '24k Magic' Song & Video

It's his first new solo single in 4 years.

Bruno Mars is back! After teasing a new track earlier this week, the pop star has arrived with "24k Magic," his first solo single in four years. He also dropped a video for the song late Thursday (Oct. 6).

The heavily auto-tuned tune is accompanied with a glitzy clip which sees Mars and his buddies get down to partying, drinking and playing the tables in Vegas. Mars always has a bottle of champagne in his grip and a smile on his face.

The track was written and produced by Shampoo Press & Curl, with additional production by The Stereotypes, and its clip was directed by Mars and longtime collaborator Cameron Duddy.

"24k Magic" is the title track from Mars' forthcoming third studio album, due out Nov. 18. It's his first LP since 2012's Unorthodox Jukebox, which included the hits "Locked Out of Heaven," "When I Was Your Man" and "Treasure."

On Monday, the singer tweeted that his album was done and shared nine photos on Instagram that made up the the single art for "24k Magic" (pronounced twenty-four karat magic). 

Mars is expected to perform his first concert of the year at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, on Friday. He returns to Saturday Night Live for his fourth appearance next Saturday (Oct. 15).

Hmmm--- not exactly hearing the smash that other people are? IMO it sounds a bit like "Get Down On It" by Kool and the Gang at parts and would fit in perfectly as an album cut on Glitter.

Its the vocal arrangement that really kills it for me. The music is a bop for sure but he sings it just like UF including the background and its hard to get into it.

Two classics, and am I the only one who doesn't think they sound similar? I've been reading that since 1999 though, so I must be missing something. smiley: laugh

Personally, I'd say if Uptown Funk was his We Belong Together, 24K Magic is his Don't Forget About Us. smiley: tongue

Yeah that was probably a bad example because I have always found they don't sound that similar either. smiley: laugh  Maybe the "Boy if I do..." bit is kind of similar to "I'm in heaven..." but even that is kind of a stretch.

"Heartbreaker" is a "Fantasy/Dreamlover" hybrid. The pre-chorus has that same melody as "Fantasy" while you could sing the "Dreamlover" chorus over the HB one. 

"Heartbreaker" is definitely a great song in its own merit though. The best all around single release Mariah has ever done and a Pop cult. Look at the video, uploaded only recently on VEVO and getting as many views as some of the other cemented classics in her catalog at a time when Mariah is semi-inactive or transitioning into a legacy act.
