Bruno Mars is a 14-time Grammy Award nominee who has sold more than 45 million singles worldwide and has more than one billion views on YouTube. Mars first achieved worldwide visibility and success as a featured writer/producer/singer on two massive summer hits in 2010 (McCoy's "Billionaire" and B.o.B's "Nothin' On You"). His debut album, "Doo-Wops & Hooligans" was released in October 2010 and has been certified 39x platinum worldwide. The album included the 12x platinum blockbuster single "Just the Way You Are," which hit No. 1 in multiple countries across the globe and won the critically acclaimed artist a Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. "Doo-Wops & Hooligans" claimed two additional hit singles: the 10x platinum "Grenade" and 6x platinum "The Lazy Song." Following his worldwide success with "Doo-Wops & Hooligans," Mars created the critically acclaimed ballad "It Will Rain" for the original motion picture soundtrack for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1."

On Dec. 11, Mars will release his highly anticipated sophomore album, "Unorthodox Jukebox," including the singles "Locked Out of Heaven" and "Young Girls." Mars and his songwriting/production team The Smeezingtons (Mars, Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine) partnered with heavyweight producers, including Jeff Bhasker, Mark Ronson and Diplo to create the 10-track album. Mars has received an abundance of accolades to date, including ASCAP Song of the Year, a Billboard Music Award for Top Radio Song for "Just the Way You Are," a BRIT Award for International Male Solo Artist, an American Music Award for Favorite Male Artist in Pop/Rock, two MTV European Music Awards, including Best New Artist and the People's Choice Award for Favorite Male Artist. In 2011, Mars was named one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people in the world. Exclusive tracks from "Unorthodox Jukebox" available now on iTunes at http://smarturl.it/looh.
