Bruno Mars - Grenade

Posted 6 years ago
The Smeezingtons
Doo-Wops & Hooligans

With a soulful voice and even more harmonious tunes, one man has captured the hearts of girls everywhere. Hint: He probably wrote one of your favorite songs and he isn’t Canadian. Since that rules out Drake, you know it’s Bruno Mars. After helping out Travis McCoy and B.o.B with their hit singles, Bruno captured a #1 smash for himself with Just the Way You Are and his latest attempt at chart domination arrives in the form of a Grenade. Helmed by Mars-lead production team The Smeezingtons, Grenade features some uptempo production and an infectious hook (did you expect anything else?), but it’s really Bruno’s voice that steals the show. This is a much more emotional song than Way You Are, giving off a more serious tone and gritty flavor as Bruno lets the fairer sex know that he would do anything for them, from jumping in front of trains to even catching some shrapnel – too bad his girl doesn’t feel the same way. So how about it Booth? Will Bruno’s debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans, out now, contain two number one hits? We’ll find out soon in the comments below.
