Bruno Mars: A performance at the MTV VMAs, 4 smash single, 3 of them going to No. 1, 7 Grammy nominations…all for a new artist?! Kind of unbelievable but alas, this is Bruno Mars’ life. He started the year as the collaboration king, assisting B.o.B and Travie McCoy with their hit songs before striking out on his own and taking over the charts. His debut solo single, Just The Way You Are, headed to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and its follow-up, Grenade, just did the same. There’s no stopping Bruno in 2011. We’ve got a feeling he’ll be around for a very long time.
