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..
So as you can tell from looking at my social media feed, I’ve been having a Chris Brown inspired week. With a new obsession for the great dance moves featured in Tempo by Chris Brown (even though the music video’s concept for the song is quiet shocking), I decided to do a backtrack on one of my old favorites.
