Bruno Mars ft. Cee-Lo & B.o.B - The Other Side

Posted 6 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
The Smeezingtons
Album:
Its Better If You Don't Understand EP

I was skeptical when I first heard Bruno Mars on B.o.B’s smash hit Nothin on You, and even when I heard him again on Travie McCoy’s Billionaire. I imagined Bruno Mars as someone who’d pop up, make a few joints, then vanish. But after hearing his new record, The Other Side, I’m now impressed and intrigued to see what else Bruno can cook up. Laced by the Smeezingtons, the production duo that Mars is one half of, and co-produced by Mike Caren, The Other Side provides us with just a small glimpse of Bruno’s talents. Bringing in Cee-Lo and B.o.B for vocal assistance on the record, the trio create a jam that’s simultaneously retro and futuristic. After one listen, I caught myself singing along to the chorus, and I must say that Mars has made me take an interest in his future work. Having put in his time as a hook man, Bruno Mars is ready to show what he has to offer as a solo artist with his four track EP, It’s Better if You Don’t Understand, dropping Tuesday.
