The thing we love most about the new single from Bruno Mars is that it strips away all the production, all the bleeps, beats, guitars – as well as special effects and million dollar budgets in the video to deliver a gorgeous piano-based ballad that allows his raw talent to shine. Which it does spectacularly.
We reckon that Australia in particular these days is searching for more meaning in their pop – evidenced by Macklemore’s ‘Same Love’ hitting No.1, P!nk’s new single ‘Just Give Me A Reason’ hitting No.1 on iTunes late last night – and this single also spending time in the ARIA top ten (already notching up platinum success).
‘When I Was Your Man’ is a touching ode to a love lost, high on emotion, deep in meaning and altogether gorgeous.
And is it just us or is the clip (below) perhaps a little on the 3D side?
