This may be a strong statement but I think Bruno Mars is the most talented pop star in the music industry. He is everything we’d want out of an artist: the voice, the dance moves, the ability to play multiple instruments, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s good looking either! When he performed at 2014's Super Bowl Halftime Show, even his “haters” couldn’t say anything bad about him. Bruno raises the bar as far as modern music is concerned, and I think we can expect a lot more great things from him in the future.


His real name is Peter Hernandez and he was raised in Hawaii.He showed an interest in music from a very young age and moved to L.A. after high school to pursue a career in it. Bruno struggled to make it as a solo artist at first. He was mostly producing songs for other people, and was even dropped by the first record label that picked him up after a year. Thank goodness Bruno was able to sign with a different label, Atlantic Records, and his career took off from there.


It’s kind of hard to believe that Bruno has only released two albums because he has SO many hit songs: Grenade, Just the Way You Are, The Lazy Song, Young Girls, Locked Out Of Heaven, When I was Your Man, Treasure, and Gorilla. Like I said, SO many hit songs.


His most recent song is  with British Producer/DJ Mark Ronson. Uptown Funk is one of the biggest songs of all time.  It has earned Bruno two Grammy Nominations as well: Record of the Year & Best Pop Duo/ Group Performance. The song HAS to win one of those awards next month. I would be very surprised if it didnt. Bruno has also hinted at a new album in 2016 which I am very much hoping for.
