New Music: Bruno Mars – When I Was Your Man

Kid Fury December 3, 2012 New Music 27 Comments

I haven’t seen it for Bruno Mars since he went on tour with Janelle Monaé and then devoured all of her style and stage presence, but I mean…he isn’t going away.

His sophomore album, Unorthodox Jukebox, is due on December 11th and this is the latest cut, “When I Was Your Man.” The song, which is now available on iTunes, tells the story of Bruno’s regret after losing the one he loves. It’s supposedly based on his ex-girlfriend.

    Wasn’t his ex Rita Ora? 

    • OhagiGaveMeTheSamePoem

      He left his hometown chick for Rita & the chick wrote a blog on it.

      This song is dope. He delivers the pop soul I want to hear from Chris Brown.

  • EntertainMeh aka heyboo

    I can’t believe you don’t like Bruno, Fury!! He is an amazing singer and performer. I hope he’s around for a long, long time.

    • CaramelHottie

      And songwriter!! 

      It’s rare to have a artist, nowadays at least, who writes their own music, produces it and still have a voice that slays. I think he’s dope..

  • La

    bruno and rita were cute together.

  • Missmarchmommy

    This song is sad as hell but I love B.Mars 

  • Ok, that’s fine

    so people are just gonna forget he also briefly dated rocsi from 106 and porch

    • Breanna Prettybrowneyez

      ………Really? Would have never guessed

  • Kayy

    Wow, this is actually a nice song, go head boo.

    Fury, I likes you and all, but I’ma need you to stop shading Bruno if you don’t know much about him. I stan for Janelle, but I like me some Bruno too. They have similar tastes and a non-genre specific sound, which is why they toured together. But that’s where the similarities stop. First of all, Bruno has had that throwback style longer than Janelle has, seeing that he’s been performing Doo-Wop, 50s Rock, and 60s Soul since he was a toddler. The coordinated suits, pompadoured hair, and hitting shuffles/splits is nothing new to him. His debut album is an ode to that music, hence the style and title, Doo Wops and Hooligans (which came out before he ever toured or performed with Jane). Janelle’s reason for dressing the way she does is totally different as well, plus she’s more fantasy/avant garde based. She also wears a uniform almost all the time, offstage and onstage. Either black and white tux or a black and white outfit of some sort. Bruno and his band only did the coordinated suits and choreography for certain song arrangements and certain tv performances…not all of them. He also never did that during concerts, unlike Janelle. Have you even seen either of them live? I swear, folks who don’t know what they’re talking about are the first to start shit lol. And the nerve of the Beyonce stan to talk about someone jocking someone’s style…gwurl!

      well. damn. 

    • Lesbianlocs

      well there it is then

      Uno out!

  • Buckey’s Wig

    Bruno is one of the few who produces and writes his own stuff and its good stuff….i see it for him…he is gonna last

  • Operamystic

    ummmmm did you just try to READ Fury and COME FOR THE QUEEN in the same breath……”DON”T COME FOR HIM…DO NOT COME FOR HIM…HE IS NOT HERE FOR THAT!!!”

    • Buckey’s wig

       lol what are you his mascot?…i love kid fury i just disagree with this specific comment…this is America and we have democracy here im entitled to my own opinions just like he is…

    • OneNationUnderAGroove

       If you’re referring to my comment, yes I sure did. You can retire your pom poms. Fury’s word and taste is not the gospel. In no way do I find Beyonce untalented or undeserving of her success, but let’s not pretend like she hasn’t been “inspired” a helluva lot. I have no problem with Fury not liking Bruno or whoever else, that’s the beauty in opinion. But, when you basically make shit up to support your claims, then yea…I gots a problem with that and I will point it out. Be informed and critique or shut the fuck up. And that’s with anyone. It’s seriously a pet peeve of mine.

        Bey is a diana ross and tina turner cluster ball….i dont understand the obsession with this chick

    I love Bruno Mars. He hasn’t put out a song I hated ever and ‘Locked out of Heaven’ is MY SHIT! I don’t even do the ringtone thing anymore and that’s my ringtone! I’m buying this album and blasting it into 2013. 

  • whatevs

    Well this thread escalated quickly…

  • M.J.

    What does Bey have to do with this? Some people… 

    Anyways… back to Bruno… It’s an alright song.
