Agree with everything but the expert. I think it would suit him perfectly like Prince did with his album "Purple Rain" and like MJ did "Beat It" and"Dirty Diana". He can totally pull that off and seems a logical move from what we have been hearing so far and I wouldn't mind a reggae-rock song.

Billboard experts predict he's going for POP:
Bruno Mars, who bounces between pop and R&B, could be placed in the pop category this time around with 24K Magic. Golding mentions that Mars "flirts" between the two genres, and when he does lean into pop, he does so "authentically."
+ AOTY (locked), TWIL in general field

I also would love to hear rock influences on his next album.
http://hitsdailydouble.com/news&id=308900Bruno Mars’ third album, 24K Magic, is vying for a nom for Best R&B Album, not Best Pop Vocal Album. Mars’ first two studio albums, Doo-Wops & Hooligans and Unorthodox Jukebox, were both nominated in the pop album category; Jukebox won.
Yes, but nothing has been announced I don't understand what they are waiting forBenjamin wrote:Can we expect a 4th single soon? I feel like 'Versace' kind of killed the momentum.
WTF??Madelinefs wrote:Grammy Submissions
24K Magic – ROY, Video
That’s What I Like – SOY, R&B Perf, R&B Song, Video
24K Magic – AOY, R&B Album
-24k in ROTY... Really?!
-He's so not getting nom for Video since he was stupid enough to send both.
-Lack of Pop Solo submission
It's like he wants to end empty-handed. #disappointed.
He might take two in the R&B categories that will be it, he could have more nominations but 100% sure he won't get any major awardslia wrote:I know I am going to be attacked for saying this but I don't think that he deserves many Grammys for this album, I just feel it could have been a better album with all the time he took to make it. I will be more than happy if he can win one Grammy but I am not expecting a lot of nominations. That's what I like deserves a Grammy.

That's not true, it's more the other way around, let's look at the past three years.abi wrote:I think the submissions are pretty fine, aside that he should've submitted "Versace" to Traditional R&B. But other than that, I think it's fine. Submitting something to Pop would be a waste since we all know Ed will win that anyway.
And I think they made the right decision for the SOTY & ROTY submissions. They usually give SOTY to Billboard Hot 100 number one hits so "That's What I Like" it is.
Something like Prince's album Purple Rain, MJ's Beat It, Dirty Diana, Lenny Kravitz fly away, beleive, again... hisentire discography . Yes I would love a pop rock album, pure pop-rock Best Rock album, rock song, and rock performanceMadelinefs wrote:My gut feeling tells me Rock might be next in the line.
WHY? The fact that Gorilla made a comeback in his setlist may suggest it's the sound that he's currently missing. Looking back at his previous tour setlists were givin a lot of clues...
