Bruno Mars - "I'm kinda the best right now..."
Thu, 13 Jan 2011 16:52:43
"I'm kinda the best right now. I don't know what else to say..." Bruno Mars may have been joking with us back in June 2010 when we first interviewed him, but make no mistake, this smooth singer can hold his own as his new single "Grenade," is, well, erm, blowing up, and topping the Ultimate Chart this week.
Bruno knows all the right people, too, so it makes sense that success would find him. His first single, "The Other Side," features appearances by B.o.B and Cee-Lo Green, and Damian Marley joins Bruno on the track "Liquor Store Blues" from the debut album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans, which has just passed Gold sales status (500,000) in the U.S. The Hawaiian-born singer and producer, son of a Latin percussionist from Brooklyn, has also worked with Travie McCoy on "Billionaire," from Travie's Lazarus.
Bruno, you just might be the best right now...
