Bruno Mars Debuts “Chunky,” Performs “24K Magic” On ‘SNL’: Watch

Pop Perspective: Bruno Mars' "24K Magic"
Is the latest by Bruno Mars actual pop gold? Idolator editors rate and review the single.

Bruno Mars returned to Saturday Night Live to turn back time, by performing songs off his forthcoming album 24K Magic.

The vibe was “California Love” for the Nae Nae generation; for 24K Magic‘s title track, Bruno and his backing band strolled from backstage into the NBC studio, West Side Story-style, to join a crowd that was already dancing to sing of how they’re #blessed. They kept the party going for the live premiere of “Chunky,” a slower, funkier ballad fit for line-dancing at Snoop Dogg‘s backyard cookout. Halloween may be fast approaching, but in Bruno Mars’ world, it may as well still be summer.

Watch Bruno Mars perform new songs off 24K Magic below.
