Well the throwback hit maker, Bruno Mars, is back with well… another throwback hit! “24K Magic” sees Mars build upon 80s funk with electro-80s funk! He’s been able to build an entire career looking back, presumably because “retro” music is deemed “credible.” While it is a bop, and the public will eat it up in the same way they did “Uptown Funk” (can that song die now please?), it shows little growth from a man who’s talent far surpasses most out today. Here’s to hoping this a taste of the familiar before serving up something new.
