For his third album, Bruno Mars largely left behind any traces of vulnerability that had shaped his earlier work. Focusing instead on the 90’s R&B he grew up on, he delivers a nonstop party, especially on its lead single and title track. Far more sonically cohesive than most contemporary projects from his peers in the pop landscape, it's no wonder Mars won six Grammys for the album including Record, Song and Album of the Year.

KEY TRACK - ‘THAT’S WHAT I LIKE’ One of his most successful singles to date, Mars expertly plays his own wingman on the mid tempo jam that acts as the most obvious touchstone for his excellent work that followed, with Anderson Paak as Silk Sonic.
