Bruno Mars Gives Us Some Serious Retro Vibes With "24K Magic"

♬ Baby I swear it’s deja vu ♬

Bruno Mars has already given us a taste of his highly-anticipated album, 24K Magic, with his singles “24K Magic” and “Versace on the Floor,” as well as his performance of “Chunky” on SNL a couple weeks ago, and we all know that he’s coming at us with a real throwback album. GrooveVolt gave a listen to 24K Magic and we swear we’ve heard some of these songs before. Here are a few songs that we thought inspired the sound for Bruno’s new album.

1. “Finesse” vs. “Poison” by Bell Biv

2. “That’s What I Like” vs. “Pony” by Ginuwine

3. “Perm” vs. “Get Up” by James Brown
