Bruno Mars has built a name for himself by adding his smooth vocals to some of 2010’s biggest tracks, from B.o.B’s “Nothin’ On You” to Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire.” Now the singer-songwriter is ready to take his place as the main artist on a track—check out Mars’ video for “The Other Side”, featuring Cee-Lo Green and B.o.B, from his EP It’s Better If You Don’t Understand.

The soulful, jazzy track actually doesn’t sound so far off from Cee-Lo’s own material. Bobby Ray and Cee-Lo don’t appear in the video, and although they’re missed, it’s nice to see Bruno finally get to hog the spotlight.

We’re fans of Bruno and this song, but the video comes off as though it was just an afterthought, since Mars was literally in the middle of a photoshoot while this footage was recorded. A little more creativity or a concept would have been nice, but we suppose his label just wanted to throw something out there, even if it was half-conceived, to whet our appetite for more Mars.

Well, it worked for us! How about you?
