Superstar musician Bruno Mars is at again. After the huge success of “24K Magic” he is on a serious role with his latest single and video “Finesse”, which has been viewed over 143 Million times on Youtube in 3 weeks. The song is a brilliant mix of the sounds from a time when bands were actually relevant to an artist’s music. The video is a straight up ode to “In Living Color”, the iconic sketch comedy show from the early 90s. The tone, styling, choreography and the actual set are so on point you would think this was shot when the show was actually still in production.
Cardi-B, who is also on fire with her 2017 run of hits, brings the right kind of swagger to the Remix version of the track and the visual appeal of the video. Anyone who was a teen or young adult during the 90s will truly feel nostalgic. And those not of that era should truly appreciate the musical genius of Mars, his band, and his production/songwriting team The Stereotypes. It will be interesting what Mr. Mars has up his sleeve next to top this one.
