Happy Tuesday, friends! Every Tuesday, one of my classes (shout out to 6th period) selects a few individuals to share songs they’re listening to and loving, so I thought I’d do the same here. Music is my life–that’s not an exaggeration. I actually wrote about music for my college essay because it’s so influential and powerful. Music changes lives. Music unites people. Music provides peace and solace. Music reminds you that you’re not alone. Music matters, so why not share it with the world, right?
Today’s featured artist is Bruno Mars. Born Peter Gene Hernandez, Mars rose to fame in 2010 with his hit song “Just the Way You Are,” and has since received numerous awards and acclaim including four Grammys. In 2015, he took a short break to work on his third studio album, 24K Magic, which is set to release November 18th. Bruno Mars has such great style that harkens back to a funky era nearly forgotten. His music is catchy, but not corny. Fun, yet innovative. He doesn’t sacrifice meaningful lyrics for a sick beat. He’s able to balance it all, and have a party while doing it! So, while we await his next album, let’s dance and groove to today’s tune: “24K Magic.” Enjoy! What are you listening to? Comment below!
