Doo-Wops and Hooligans

It is a rare occurrence to catch me listening to anything other than hip-hop. However, one thing I like to listen to that most hip-hop artists don't have, is a mellifluous voice. Peter Hernandez aka Bruno Mars is my latest favorite artist because of his geuninely good singing voice. He is part of a producer group called the Smeezingtons, who are responsible for many popular hits like Nothin' On You by B.o.B (which was where I first heard of him). Check out this video. It may not be the greatest song, but it's catchy and you can't deny that steez. His upcoming debut album Doo-Wops and Hooligans (set to be released October 5th 2010) is one I highly look forward to. Here's the tracklist:

1. Grenade
3. Our First Time
4. Runaway Baby
5. The Lazy Song
6. Marry You
7. Talking To The Moon
8. Liquor Store Blues ft. Damian Marley
9. Count On Me
