Bruno Mars has released the silky smooth "Versace on the Floor," which will be on his upcoming album 24K Magic. This is the second official single to be released in anticipation of the album, following the energetic title track, "24K Magic."
"Versace on the Floor" is a slow-paced sensual ballad featuring instrumentation reminiscent of Michael Jackson, Prince, and later Marvin Gaye. In an interview with Rolling Stone for the magazine's most recent cover story, Mars discussed his thought process and the amount of iterations of the song he went through before finally settling on the current version:
I could play you six different versions of this song... I play it for people and they're smiling; it's awesome. But what's the beat doing? We're lounging. I don't want to make poolside music. Let's make it feel like these unicorns we're talking about... So we get there with it, and it's good, it's about to be on the album. And then it's like ... are you sure? We're painting this picture – both in silk, I'm promising the world. But I'm not singing. This is supposed to be a big ballad on the album, but I'm not giving it to 'em! If we're gonna really, dramatically slow things down, I've got to be singing some shit. At a certain point I needed to stop telling you we're gonna get down, and just get down.
"Versace on the Floor" only accentuates Bruno's King Midas touch for delivering smash singles. Purchase it now on Amazon.
