Global superstar Bruno Mars says he was inspired to create his Grammy-winning Album Of The Year 24K Magic, wanting to capture the sound of 1990s R&B that he listened and danced to growing up. 24K Magic encompasses multiple genres, including R&B, funk, pop, and new jack swing.
The lyrics of 24K Magic explore themes similar to those of its predecessor, Unorthodox Jukebox (2012), including money and sex. According to Mars, although he was able to convince Atlantic Records of the album's sound, they were initially hesitant.
24K became Mars's first No. 1 album on the U.S. Top R&B/Hip-Hop albums chart. It also peaked at No. 2 in Canada, France, and New Zealand, and produced five singles: "24K Magic," "That's What I Like," and "Finesse" (remix featuring Cardi B), which were commercially successful while "Versace on the Floor" charted moderately and "Chunky" had a limited release. "That's What I Like" reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Mars's seventh No. 1 song in the United States, while "24K Magic" peaked at No. 1 in New Zealand. The album sold 5 million units globally and was certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). It also hauled in multiple honors at the 2018 Grammy Awards, including Album Of The Year.
