Bruno Mars, the singer-songwriter/producer/musician who has sold over five million albums and over 45 million singles is back. This time, with a random monkey. In October, he released his latest single, “Locked Out Of Heaven”. You might’ve read about it here. Well, let’s just put it this way – no artiste in the right mind would release a single without following it up with an album.

The thing is, we didn’t expect this:

Yup. The flash mob at Pavilion KL, Malaysia yesterday evening has been explained. And the random monkey was not as random as we thought after all!

Titled, “Unorthodox Jukebox“, Bruno Mars will once again meld a multitude of musical approaches to create his own distinctive sound. We guess in his terms, it meant that he needed to send a monkey running loose in our city. Alright, alright, but in all seriousness, Bruno ‘s new album sounds like it’s going to rake in another Grammy nomination or two, or even three, it features a hit-making production team comprising of Bruno Mars himself, Philip Lawrence, and Ari Levine.

Let’s not forget the additional array of top producers who also joined in the creation of “Unorthodox Jukebox” including award-winning studio superstars such as:

Jeff Bhasker (fun., Kanye West, Jay-Z)

Mark Ronson (Amy WInehouse, Lil Wayne, Black Lips)

Diplo (M.I.A, Usher)

Whoa. But let’s not be too quick to judge until we’ve all heard it. What? You need a copy? Then go grab one! “Unorthodox Jukebox” is now available at a music store near you.


Psst. We already have the CD, thank to our friends from Warner Music Malaysia. Look out for our review soon.
