Bruno Mars takes new hit to award show stage

The Myanmar Times - - The Pulse -

Bruno Mars will re­turn to the global con­cert stage when he per­forms his fun-lov­ing new song at the MTV Eu­ro­pean Mu­sic Awards, the net­work an­nounced this week.

The funk-pop singer, who scored a string of hits be­fore tak­ing a hia­tus, will sing his “24K Magic” at the EMAs, which will be broad­cast live on Novem­ber 6 from Rot­ter­dam.

The youth net­work said that Mars was the first in a se­ries of per­form­ers it would an­nounce for the tele­vised spec­ta­cle geared to­ward MTV’s in­ter­na­tional au­di­ence.

“24K Magic”, a party an­them with syn­the­siz­ers and funk beats rem­i­nis­cent of early Janet Jack­son, came out last week as the first sin­gle off Mars’s al­bum of the same name that will come out on Novem­ber 18.

The 31-year-old multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist from Hawaii be­came a fix­ture on Top 40 ra­dio with pop tracks from his last al­bum, 2012’s Un­ortho­dox Juke­box.

Mars had been com­par­a­tively silent as he pre­pared his new al­bum but played the Su­per Bowl half­time show in Fe­bru­ary and on Oc­to­ber 15 will ap­pear on Satur­day Night Live, both ma­jor draws on US tele­vi­sion.

Bey­once, who tri­umphed in MTV’s sig­na­ture Video Mu­sic Awards in New York in Au­gust, is tied with Justin Bieber for the most nom­i­na­tions at the Eu­ro­pean show.
