NEW: Bruno Mars’s “Count On Me” Sounds Like Plain White T’s

Bruno Mars‘s debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans dropped today… have you picked it up yet? Or are you puritanically boycotting him because of his coke bust in Vegas? Either way, check out his lovey dovey track “Count On Me” below. THEN compare it to the annoyingly catchy 2008 Plain White T’s song “1-2-3-4.” Strangely similar in subject AND sound, no? BUSTED!

Listen: Bruno Mars – “Grenade” Live at The Grove, LA

So last week we let you guys know about a Bruno Mars secret show at The Grove in LA. We didn’t catch the show since we have jobs…gotta make that green!  I’ll basically go to anything that is a.) free or b.) at The Grove so I am sad that I couldn’t go, especially after listening to a few more songs on his upcoming debut album.

Watch his performance of “Grenade” below and make sure to grab his album out early October!

Listen: Bruno Mars ft. Damian Marley – “Liquor Store Blues”

Being arrested for cocaine possession isn’t going to stop Bruno Mars from being one of the hottest rising musicians right now. Take a listen to leaked track “Liquor Store Blues” which features Damian Marley off his upcoming album Doo-Wops & Hooligans out October 5. It’s different from what I’ve heard from Bruno thus far straying more towards a blues/reggae sound perhaps thanks to Marley. Listen below!

Bruno Mars Arrested!

23-year-old “Just The Way You Are” singer, Bruno Mars, was arrested early Sunday morning in Sin City for possession of narcotics. Allegedly, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino security guards busted Bruno (born Peter Hernandez) in the bathroom with a yet-to-be-disclosed substance.

In this case: What happens in Vegas, makes the headlines.

UPDATE: TMZ is reporting that the narcotic in question was indeed cocaine. 2.6 grams.
