I feel the same !!! 24k magic its cool but its meh, that was another uptown funk, i would like if he comes with more songs like "the way you are."
Early Bruno is highly slept on. “Talking to the Moon” gets me in my feelings every single time. Doo-Wops and Hooligans brings me back to my high school years...it was a fun little carefree vibe. He was more unique to himself back then, while also incorporating influences.

I actually love the song and surprised it didn’t reach number 1. Especially since all the songs that have went number since Leave the Door Open was released were one week wonders at number 1

You are right.

I see Bruno as a glorified tribute singer, hence why when compared to the people who is imitating he looks like a joke.

Janelle is amazing but since she isn't a hypersexual rapper talking about her p*ssy and how much d*ck she constantly has in her, she isn't a massive mainstream artist.

The current agenda is to promote the likes of City Girls and Meghan Thee Stallion over versatile black artists like Janelle who play multiple instruments and perform a wide range of genres.
I'm sure you'd be disappointed to know that Janelle and Bruno have not only toured with one another on a very successful tour, but they are good friends. She'd be one of the first ones to tell you that what you say about Bruno is 100% wrong.

You are not referring to me, but many of us know that they toured together. Touring with black artist does not somehow give you a pass into black culture. I like Bruno but many of you waive your rainbow/all-inclusive flag whenever he becomes a topic. That very tour Is one of the key reasons why I suspect that early Bruno was ripping some of her shit.

I suspect you are not black, because many of you love to use other black people to condemn and silence black people.

Bruno lost me when he linked up with that fugly colorist Paak, like that asshole can't even sing. It sucks cuz I do like his music, even if he is just a vulturing karaoke singer at this point.

He's lucky a song with a 70s aesthetic is doing so well tbh. Still, its always embarrassing with all the stunts artists pull to hit number one. The song is successful, why isn't that enough?
Men don’t care about the flaws in other men, because more likely then not they too ain’t shit. He teamed up with Kodak black way before Anderson came into the picture so...

I listen to those who have actually WORKED with Bruno and KNOW Bruno. Which is not you, but Janelle. Babyface. Teddy Riley. Jimmy Jam. Terry Lewis. Janet Jackson. Lionel Ritchie. Smokey Robinson, and even PRINCE had wrote him before he passed away (R.I.P.). I could go on...

So, again, I will listen to THOSE who truly KNOW who he is and what he is about.

Again with you using Black people to silence other black people. I also peeped that you did not deny that you were non-black.
Have a good day sir.

Your name is "Tree-Hugger" and you joined a Black forum in 2021 and you're questioning me? All because I refuse to think Bruno Mars is this "problem" you are making him out to be? And that is, Miss. Not Sir.

Carry on.

Sir,
I’ve been on this forum longer than you. Move around.

The way how he is pulling out all of the gimmicks and Atlantic airplay payola and his ass still ain’t able to have the number one spot

Now he has Anderson Paak writing out essays on Instagram

Lil Nas X, Drake and Justin Bieber ain’t have to do all of that begging, and their recent songs hit number one

The public is saying no to Bobby Womack impersonators

That song cranks. And I play it a lot. It'll get there. It's one of the only songs in the DMV that can play on pretty much all of the major stations. That. Is. My. Jam.

No, the sound is not the issue (why are y'all acting like the song cascaded down the charts after a week); he's holding steady in the Top 5 after a month, so people LOVE the song (including myself). Most of the songs that went #1 this year did so off of gimmicks & heavy press (Lil Lucifer X), controversy (Trashi B), or massive payola (that Olivia chick, Dr@ke & JB). If they went #1 it would be the most organic #1 of the year...lol

He & Anderson need to push the song harder if they want a #1; they are super close to it. Had it not been for Up a few weeks back & that scissoring mess on the Grammy's they would've had it. They were only a couple of points away @ #2 with Driver's License also on their asses.

BRUNO is acting like the song is cascading down. The fact that he’s complaining shows he’s insecure with the way the song is charting.

Again, I thought the song was beautiful but considering he’s already done other songs with this same style, it’s time for HIM to switch it up.

You can’t keep doing the same things in 2021 you did in 2018 and expect the same success. It’s too much competition even if it’s trash.

My generation allowed culture vultures to get to the top of every chart and allowed them to hit milestones and get accolades in our genres.

It’s our fault we got Bruno, Iggy, Eminem (who was the so called #1 rapper smh), Macklemore, etc.

This new generation is built different, though. Bruno and Iggy are not going to have smash hits in 2021.

Bruno really shot himself in the foot. He could have kept it cute after uptown funk but he made the active decision to assign himself as a tribute artist who remakes nostalgic music from the past. It’s sad bcz he is vocally talented and he used to be so well liked. I’m embarrazzed for him

Well, I love the song-and will be happy to play it over and over again-does YouTube count in those totals? (And I think he's joking like he usually does when he's supposedly 'sad' about it not being number one.)
Takes me back to my teenage years of 70's sexy soul-and I can seamlessly go from that to a Smokey Robinson playlist-and others.

Much better than the last stuff-too 'New Jack Swing-y" for my taste. And I miss Phil-know nothing about them personally, but certainly liked their camaraderie. They seemed liked brothers.

He shouldn't worry about always hitting number one. It is a good song and probably will be on the charts for a while- another font called it a "slow burner". I see this song as being a classic song played at cookouts, wedding receptions, b-day parties for years to come. Even it it doesn't hit number one on the main chart - I think it is still a success.


Oh he acting like a little b*tch and not returning Anderson's calls????? Wow. Sounds like he is emotional and about the shelve the entire project. Wow.
