Found my husband singing along to this song the other day, personally, I’m not a fan but anyways, it gets to you after a while.
24K Magic is a song by Bruno Mars. The song won Record of the Year at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards in 2018. Although I’m not a die hard Bruno Mars fan, I must admit that I commend his reasoning behind his 90s influenced music. He stated in an interview with Zane Lowe;
“It’s what we want to bring to the table musically. You hear these ’90s influences on the whole album, really, but ’24K Magic’ is because of West Coast hip-hop: Dr. Dre, DJ Quik, Suga Free…it was at a time when it was okay to party, to be flashy, to get on the dance floor.”
The video is all about Bruno having a party with his friends at a casino. The video was shot in Las Vegas with Bruno driving a cadillac.. I must commend his class as he eventually purchased the car in the video.
The song has been number 1 on various charts including the US Rhytmic charts. The song has received Gold, Platinum & Diamond certifications.
Go ahead, give this one a listen..
Okay, so don’t think I’m a fan of this whole swearing scene because I’m not but really, find me a song with a catchy beat that doesn’t point to anything derogatory (and no, Ed Sheeran doesn’t count!) Actually, now that I think about it, I challenge a rapper to rap without vulgarity (vulgarity also refers to anything that so much as hints at sex or any private body parts!) But anyway, the sweary song with the catchy beat is none other than Tempo by Chris Brown.
