ICYMI: Bruno Mars Knows It’s “Too Good To Say Goodbye”

March 3, 2018 — The saying “the third time’s the charm” certainly applies to the gifted and formidable artist Bruno Mars

His third studio album, 24K Magic, released in late 2016,  is a critical and commercial home run:  Double-platinum sales, three Grammy awards in 2018, including Album of the Year, and five singles, all of which charted.  Largely a delightful mix of pop, dance, funk and hip hop, there is one slow-burning “sleeper” track on the record that wasn’t released as a single and hasn’t been a focus of radio or the public conversation.  It’s the album’s closer “Too Good To Say Goodbye,” a classic, old school R&B ballad co-written by Babyface whose lovely melody grabs your ears immediately and won’t let go.  In case you missed it amid all the attention given to the singles, we wanted to focus you on the track that is likely right in a SoulTracker’s listening sweet spot. Enjoy.
