#NewMusicTuesday: Bruno Mars Featuring Cardi B, “Finesse” Remix
No one does throwbacks better than Bruno Mars! His music video with rapper Cardi B for “Finesse” Remix, the latest single from his 24K Magic album, is a riff off a nineties song by The Stereotypes, while the music video pays homage to the dance performances on the iconic 1990 sketch comedy series In Living Color. As splashy and vivacious as the series itself, the “Finesse” video looks like it was a blast to make! Can someone give us a paint roller too, please?!
Bruno Mars’ moves are as effortless and on point as ever in the music video and his smooth, sultry vocals do the original version justice. Meanwhile, Cardi B’s smart and sharp raps add freshness to the hit, and modernize it for today’s listeners. The rapper is on top of the music world right now — she made history last week as the first rap artist to have her first three Billboard Hot 100 entries also appear in the chart's Top 10 at the same time. She’s also nominated for two Grammys for “Bodak Yellow.” We wish you the best of luck at the awards show, Cardi B!
And don’t worry, we didn't forget about Bruno! He has some Grammy nominations of his own as well — six in fact, including nominations for Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year. We couldn’t be happier for him, especially because he’s a sweetheart! In true Bruno Mars fashion, we’ve got a throwback video for you! Watch him serenade one of his fans in the clip below, and keep listening to Bruno Mars and Cardi B on iHeartRadio!video
