Bruno Mars Merch - Career
Bruno Mars began his music career by writing songs for artists such as Alexandra Burke, Brandy and Sean Kingston. He also wrote Flo Rida’s hit ‘Right Round’ and Sugababes’ ‘Get Sexy’. Two of his biggest co-writing credits were B.o.B’s ‘Nothin’ on You’ and Travis McCoy’s ‘Billionaire’, both of which were top 10 hits around the world. Mars capitalised on his success as a songwriter by releasing his debut solo EP entitled ‘It’s Better If You Don’t Understand’ , which featured the single ‘The Other Side’, with B.o.B and Cee Lo Green on vocals.
At the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, Bruno Mars performed ‘Airplanes’ with B.o.B and Hayley Williams of the band Paramore. Bruno Mars’ debut album, entitled Doo-Wops & Hooligans, was released in October 2010. The lead single, ‘Just the Way You Are’ performed well in the US charts. Damian Marley features on the track ‘Liquor Store Blues’. Following the release of the album, Mars planned a tour with Maroon 5 as well as dates with Travie McCoy. In 2012, Mars released the album Unorthodox Jukebox to positive reviews.
Peter Gene Hernandez, popularly known as Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, musician, and dancer. Mars was born and raised in a musical family in Honolulu, Hawaii, and is one of six children. His father (who has roots in Puerto Rico, Hungary, and Ukraine) is a percussionist, while his late mother (a Filipina) was a hula dancer and singer. After performing in his family band called The Love Notes, and showcasing his persona “Little Elvis” in numerous on-stage appearances, Mars moved to Los Angeles in 2003 after finishing high school to pursue a career in entertainment on his own.
Prior to becoming a successful musical artist, Mars was a music producer, writing songs for the likes of Adam Levine, Sean Kingston, and Flo Rida. In 2010, Mars collaborated with artist Travie McCoy on a song called ‘Billionaire,’ which was a huge hit at the time giving him the push he needed in Hollywood. After the release of this song, Mars debuted his single ‘Just The Way You Are’ off his first studio album “Doo-Wops & Hooligans.” In 2013, following the success of his first and second studio albums, Mars received top billing at the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show as the lead performer — a huge accomplishment for the talented singer.
In 2016, Mars released his highly anticipated third album “24K Magic,” which peaked at number four in the U.S.
