From Quiz Bruno Mars

Mars came from a musical family and he and his five siblings were encouraged by their parents to pursue music from a young age.

4. On February 2010, B.o.B.'s debut single was released, and featured lyrics and vocals by Bruno Mars. What is the name of this song?

From Quiz Bruno Mars Everyone!

Answer: Nothin' On You

The Smeezingtons, a songwriting group made up by Mars, Phillip Lawrence and Ari Levine, were contacted to write songs for B.o.B. in 2009. Bruno Mars wrote the lyrics of the song, and composed the main melody. "Nothin' On You" reached top positions in the US Billboard Hot 100 list, as well as in the Hot Rap Songs Billboard. The song was Bruno Mars' first single as a solo artist. You may remember the song with these lyrics: "Beautiful girls, all over the world, I could be chasing but my time would be wasted, they got nothin' on you baby".

5. Bruno Mars continued to perform at a young age, his enthusiasm and stage presence earning him which nickname?

From Quiz Bruno Mars

Answer: Little Elvis

After his initial performance at the Sheraton Hotel with his father's band, Mars continued to perform in public and was even filmed for a local television show called "Hawaiian Moving Company". "Little Elvis" seems doubly apt, with Mars' stage presence as well as his diminutive stature (of course he was a child, but even now he stands at 5' 4"). Additionally, Bruno would often impersonate Elvis on stage. As he grew older, he also perfected his Michael Jackson impersonation.

6. In March 2010, Bruno Mars' second single was released. With which artist, who was the lead vocalist of "Gym Class Heroes" did Bruno Mars write and sing "Billionaire"?

From Quiz Bruno Mars Everyone!

Answer: Travie McCoy

Travie McCoy joined with The Smeezingtons to write "Billionaire". Bruno Mars once said that the idea for the song came from him walking down the street and thinking about how he would like his finances to improve, and the first sentence of the song occurred to him: "I wanna be a billionaire, so freaking bad". McCoy also stated that the lyrics questioned what he would do with such amounts of money, be selfish or selfless? The song reached position number four in the US Billboard Hot 100 list, and was McCoy's first single as a solo artist.

7. In 2010, Bruno Mars released his debut single, and it rocketed to number one in several countries' music charts. What is the name of this song, the music video of which sees Mars manipulating a cassette tape?

From Quiz Bruno Mars

Answer: Just the Way You Are

"Just the Way You Are" is similar in style to Bruno Mars' vocals in "Nothin' on You" by B.o.B. It was the first single released from Mars' first album, "Doo-Wops & Hooligans", the title of which was inspired by his father's music (his father being nicknamed "Dr. Doo-Wop"). The song was produced by The Smeezingtons, Mars' own production company, and earned him a Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.

8. "It Will Rain" was released in September 2011, and reached number one position in the US Mainstream Top 40 Billboard. Which saga used Mars' song as the lead single for one of its movies?

From Quiz Bruno Mars Everyone!

Answer: Twilight

The movie "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" confirmed it would be using the song as its lead single on September 22, 2011, five days before its official release. The song was written with The Smeezingtons.

9. Bruno Mars has tackled many genres of music, but in 2011 he released a song which showed his jokier side. Which song is this, the music video of which sees Mars and five men in chimpanzee masks dancing around?

From Quiz Bruno Mars

Answer: The Lazy Song

"The Lazy Song" was released in 2011 and also came from Mars' debut album, "Doo-Wops & Hooligans". Mars is known for writing mainly love songs, so "The Lazy Song", with lyrics such as "Today I don't feel like doin' anything" and "I'll be loungin' on the couch just chillin' in my snuggie" gave us something a bit different. The "Lazy Song" is a single-shot music video and sees Bruno Mars dance around, play the guitar, release confetti, and pull down his trousers. What a joker.

10. In 2013, Bruno Mars released yet another hit, a piano and voice-only ballad. The chorus of the song says: "I should've bought flowers, and held your hand, should've gave you all my hours, when I had the chance". What is the name of that song?

From Quiz Bruno Mars Everyone!

Answer: When I Was Your Man

"When I Was Your Man" was very successful since its release, as it reached top positions in four different US Billboard charts, and won awards like the 2013 Premio Juventud for "Favorite Hit". The lyrics of the song imply a break-up, and Mars acknowledging what he should've done and hoping that his girl's new boyfriend does treat her better. Personally, it makes me remember Elvis Presley's "You Were Always On My Mind", as the concept of both songs is very similar.

11. After the success of his first album, "Doo-Wops & Hooligans", Bruno Mars released a second album in 2012. What was it called?

From Quiz Bruno Mars

Answer: Unorthodox Jukebox

Sticking with the ape theme, the front cover of "Unorthodox Jukebox" shows a gorilla looking perplexed at a jukebox. This album was a quick success, reaching number one in the US album charts, as well as scoring number ones on the Billboard Hot 100 for with the first two singles released - "Locked Out of Heaven" and "When I Was Your Man".

The Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show was performed by Bruno Mars with the Red Hot Chili Peppers as special guests. It took place in the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. Bruno Mars became both the first Super Bowl performer under the age of 30, and of Puerto Rican descent.

13. Bruno Mars was born Peter Gene Hernandez. "Mars" was taken as a name to add "pizzazz". "Bruno" was his nickname as a child. Why was this?

From Quiz Bruno Mars

Answer: He was "chubby" like Bruno Sammartino

Bruno Mars has the same real name as his musician father, who was also one of the people to call him "Bruno" as a child due to his chubbiness and apparent similarity in appearance to the wrestler Bruno Sammartino. As mentioned in the question, Bruno thought "Mars" gave a bit of pizzazz, also stating (in an apparent departure from modesty) that he chose it because girls often said he was "out of this world".
