Bruno Mars is back with 24K Magic
MUMBAI: Multiple Grammy award-winning musician Bruno Mars has officially released his eagerly anticipated new album, 24K Magic (pronounced twenty-four karat magic). The nine-track collection written and produced by Bruno Mars (Shampoo Press and Curl) is available now in stores and at all DSPs and streaming services.
The album features a surprise guest appearance by Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry on the sultry track, ‘Calling All My Lovelies.’ The already critically-acclaimed collection also features co-writing assists from multiple Grammy Award-winning icon Babyface on the closing ballad ‘Too Good To Say Goodbye,’ and producer/heavyweight T-Pain on the jam ‘Straight Up & Down.’
Earlier this week, Mars revealed details behind his massive upcoming global headline tour - The 24K Magic World Tour (pronounced twenty-four karat magic tour), which will kick off in Belgium on March 28th and will continue thru Europe and North America, culminating with a four-night stand at The Forum in Los Angeles. The 24K Magic World Tour marks Mars’ first full-length tour since his hugely successful Moonshine Jungle World Tour, an international blockbuster that sold 2 million tickets worldwide across 155 sold-out dates.
Mars, who heralded 24K Magic with a recent cover story in Rolling Stone – is set for a number of high profile TV appearances in coming weeks, beginning this Sunday, November 20th, with a show-opening performance at the 2016 American Music Awards and his first primetime interview in nearly four years with 60 Minutes. Watch a clip from the intimate interview here. Mars will next perform at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, airing Monday, December 5th. The upcoming appearances follow Mars’ recent set on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, highlighted by performances of ‘24K Magic’ and the new album track, ‘Chunky.’
‘24K Magic,’ the blockbuster first single from 24K Magic, made an impressive top 5 debut on Billboard’s ‘Hot 100,’ entering at #5, marking Mars’ highest chart debut to date. ‘24K Magic’ also set a record as the first song in 2016 to chart in the top 10 across three top radio formats, all in the same week. The swagged-out companion video - directed by Mars and his long-time collaborator Cameron Duddy - has amassed over 130 million views worldwide at Bruno’s official YouTube channel.
