Bruno Mars - Just the Way You Are

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
The Smeezingtons and Needlz
Album:
Doo-Wops & Hooligans

Singing the hook of a number one song, Nothin’ on You, is a huge accomplishment, and following it closely with another top ten smash, Billionaire, is an unprecedented success. Now the man behind those hits, Bruno Mars, is making a play for the solo spotlight, and it’s hard to think of a better way for the multi-talented artist to make his official debut than with Just the Way You Are. Although Just the Way was also crafted by Mars’ production team The Smeezingtons - you may notice the familiar keyboard sounds - don’t automatically assume it’s simply another attempt at Nothing on You. While the song, like its musical siblings, is also somewhat upbeat, Bruno balances the track nicely with smooth, ballad vocals that fall somewhere between R&B and pop while Mars lyrically lets his special girl know that she’s perfect just the way she is. With a nice joint that can play both on the radio and when you’re alone with that special friend, could this be the hit that will put Mars on the solo map? We’ll know for sure when his currently untitled

Doo-Wops & Hooligans is released this fall.
