Bruno Mars Wins Record Of The Year | 2018 GRAMMYs
Arguably the biggest name at the 60th edition of Music's Biggest Night? Bruno Mars.
He won Record Of The Year for "24K Magic" at the 60th GRAMMY Awards before quickly picking up additional GRAMMYs for Song Of The Year ("That's What I Like") and Album Of The Year (24K Magic). The other nominees for Record Of The Year were Childish Gambino's "Redbone," Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber, Jay-Z's "The Story Of O.J.," and Kendrick Lamar's "HUMBLE."
Add to that Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song ("That's What I Like") and Best R&B Album, and the Hawaiian R&B singer/songwriter swept up as the big winner of the evening. He also lit up the stage with a colorful performance of "Finesse" with fellow GRAMMY nominee Cardi B.
His Record Of The Year win marks a year of accomplishment for the catchy track "24K Magic," the title track from his GRAMMY-winning album, which heated up the charts. But Mars isn't just a hit maker, he has something special that keeps him coming out on top.
"For us, it was more how effortless it was creating with him," longtime Mars producer Ray Romulus of the Stereotypes told Billboard. "It didn’t feel like we were actually working and making songs, it just felt like we were hanging out, having conversations, and as we're doing that we're making the beats. ... He would literally have a new idea for something every second, he would just be spilling out ideas."
"Talk about somebody who really just knows how to write a song," added the Stereotypes' Jonathan Yip. "And a hit song, at that."
