“That’s What I Like” is another powerful example of Bruno Mars’ impeccable ability to integrate pop, R&B, and soul into a distinct modern style that is relentlessly fun.
The song, which was the second single of off the album 24K Magic, is catchy, spunky, and grandiose, with playful trap drums and smooth synth-driven grooves. It’s also the result of a truly collaborate effort, as eight different songwriters contributed to the writing process.
The video is refreshingly quirky and simple, positioning doodle-like animations next to a dancing Bruno Mars. The visual effects were later adopted by Facebook and added to their new camera feature for users to try on their own.
