Post Grammy Sweep: A look back at Bruno Mars career Highlights

With Grammy nominations and wins this year in categories such as Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best R&B Song, Best R&B Album and Best R&B Performance, Bruno Mars has blown up in the past few years. With features and songs with popular artists such as Eminem, Travie McCoy, B.o.B, Cardi B, Lil Wayne, CeeLo Green and other artists throughout the years, Bruno has proven to be an accomplished musician with a combined number of 10 Grammy wins and 21 nominations over the years. With all the success throughout his career, it’s worth it to take a look back at where he came from and how his music has evolved with him leading up to his newest album “24K Magic” where he won six Grammys.

“The Lazy Song”- Released in 2010

Featured in the album “Doo-Wops & Hooligans,” Bruno and his band dress up as monkeys for the music video of this fun song and bring more attention to an already critically acclaimed album that was nominated for album of the year.

“It Will Rain”- Released in 2011

An iconic sad pop ballad with heartbroken vocals and lyrics you can belt out anywhere. Shows a darker contrast to the seemingly happy-go-lucky singer that wasn’t seen in his other albums.

“Locked Out of Heaven”- Released in 2012

Yet another song from a well received album that garnered a positive media response earning him a Grammy for best pop vocal album and multiple nominations for other Grammys. The album shows the flexibility of his music and how versatile of a musician he truly is while exploring different genre styles.

“Uptown Funk”- Released in 2014

Mars resurfaced onto the pop charts with this instant hit. An upbeat pop funk song that appeals to the masses and which earned him a grammy for best pop duo/group performance and one for record of the year in 2016. By earning these awards it set him up for increased stardom in the next few years to come, laying a baseline of awards to pave the way toward more success when he released his new album “24K Magic” in 2016 and earned six Grammys in 2018 for it.
