Bruno Mars week so far06 March 2021 ❤ 19
The brilliant Grammy Award winner, singer Bruno Mars has just released his first-ever single with the band Silk Sonic and the rapper Anderson Paak on Friday the 5th of March, in addition to that he also just released his first-ever clothing line named after his amazing alter ego Ricky Regal, which was also released on Friday the 5th of March.
The music video of his collaborative new song is nothing but great. The track is titled Leave the door open, and the retro vibe is helping the starts alter ego to thrive. It has a very 70s styled theme to it with slides, sunglasses and tracksuits, so basically, the full works and fans all around the world are loving it.
This week has not been easy for the singer as he is also battling claims that he is a Cultural their, and that he has appropriated the black culture, black music and black performance.
The singer is half Filipina, as his mother is from the Philippines, whilst she is also half Puerto Rican and Ashkenazi Jewish from his father. Growing up Bruno Mars was always surrounded by Black music and amazing Black artists, and through his career, he has credited all of the amazing Black artists that have influenced him but still Mars was confronted with the evidence that he is culturally appropriating which has sparked much debate on social media.
When the singer was asked if he is affected by any of this hate or any of the claims he simply said that it comes with the job and that he understands that.
