Bruno Mars says making album after 'Uptown Funk' was 'daunting'

Bruno Mars has admitted he felt the pressure of creating a new album following the success of the hit single 'Uptown Funk'.

The Mark Ronson track, which featured Mars on vocals, came out in 2015 and it became an instant global hit, topping charts worldwide and gaining constant radioplay.

The singer released his latest album '24K Magic' on Friday (November 18) and he told 60 Minutes that he was very conscious of the success 'Uptown Funk' had.

He said: "This album, it was daunting, because coming off of 'Uptown Funk' was like the biggest song I've ever been a part of. And then you're like, alright, now what are you gonna do?"

Mars added: "I just really care about what people see. I want them to know that I'm working hard for this. The artists that I look up to like, you know, Michael, Prince, James Brown. You watch them and you understand that they're paying attention to the details of their art.

"And they care so much about what they're wearing, about how they're moving, about how they're making the audience feel. They're not phoning it in. They're going up there to murder anybody that performs after them or performs before them. That's what I've watched my whole life and admired."
