I’m a Bruno Mars fan, I really am. If you’ve seen him live you know what kind of entertainer he is and how talented his band is as well. I’m looking forward to his new album dropping this winter and digging his first single “Locked Out Of Heaven” but a couple observations. When I listen I hear two distinct things besides his vocals; the first that he had to have gotten inspiration for the beat from The Police and second is that he took a sample from Foster The People’s own remix/updated intro for “Pumped Up Kicks” (if you don’t believe me, listen here and fast forward to the 1:40 mark). I’ll still listen to the track and it’s most likely going to make it onto the next playlist. And if you haven’t heard the song yet, check it out below.
