'Nothin' on You' and 'Billionaire' producer Bruno Mars releases debut solo single, 'Just the Way You Are': Hear it here

Posted on

By now Bruno Mars should be a familiar voice. As the featured singer and producer on two of the summer’s biggest hits–B.o.B’s “Nothin’ on You” and “Billionaire” by Travie McCoy–Mars has firmly cemented himself as a go-to guy for chart-toppers. But can he do it on his own? You be the judge. Check out the debut single, “Just the Way You Are,” from his forthcoming as-yet-untitled album. It’s an endearing mid-tempo cut, a cousin in vibe to his collaboration with B.o.B–just not as groovy. “When you smile/The whole world stops and stares for a while,” he croons to a girl on the hook. Cute, right? Seems like it would be a wonderful fit at a high school prom or a scene on MTV’s reality drama The City. Check it out after the jump and let us know what you think.

Do you think Bruno’s got a shot at solo stardom?
