Bruno Mars Sets The Mood On Baby Makin’ Ready ‘Versace On The Floor’!

Bruno Mars is expert in The Art Of Throwback-Nodding Pop, we know: From “Locked Out Of Heaven” to “Uptown Funk” with Mark Ronson to his latest “24K Magic,” he’s proven capable of supplying unapologetically nostalgic, undeniably catchy earworms time and time again.

But some would say that his more impressive moments are when he truly lets his vocals shine, like on his 2010 debut “Just The Way You Are,” 2011’s Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part I soundtrack cut “It Will Rain” and Unorthodox Jukebox‘s “When I Was Your Man.”

This week, Bruno brings us another one of those impressive moments with the premiere of his seductive slow-jam “Versace On The Floor,” the latest cut from highly-anticipated third studio album, also dubbed 24K Magic (due out everywhere on November 18th).

Unlike the “Uptown Funk“-feel of “24k Magic,” “Versace On The Floor” – produced by Shampoo Press & Curl – is a purely heaven-sent, sensual ’80’s-tinged production that makes for some major late night baby makin’ mood music. “So baby let’s just turn down the lights and close the door/ Ooohhh I love that dress but you won’t need it anymore/ No, you won’t need it no more/ Let’s just kiss till we’re naked baby,” Bruno gently urges on the warm, infectious hook. “Versace on the floor/ Ooohhh take it off for me, for me, for me, for me now girl/ Versace on the floor/ Ooohhh take it off for me, for me, for me, for me now girl.”

It’s as sexy as it is soothing — Bruno sure knows how to set the mood. GET INTO IT!

    This one also have that 80’s-90’s R&B feel to it. To me…this one sounds like a combination of New Edition and Babyface and the group the Deele that he was a member of prior to his solo career. If I can just be honest for a moment here. Lately…Bruno has been sampling a lot of 80’s-90’s R&B/Soul music from popular bands that are well known to African-American audience and introducing their sound to mainstream as something fresh and new. I have Caucasian friends who were not aware that the music from his most recent hits were well known from those eras by Black musicians. And now…he is making a fortune by sampling their music which is somewhat annoying in my opinion.
