Bruno Mars is no stranger to paying tributes to pop culture classics. Whether it’s a live performance tribute to Prince or a hit with a funky vibe that one can argue is a tribute to Collage’s song “Young Girls.” Bruno Mars does it again with his song “Finesse.”
The song originally was featured on Mars’ “24K Magic” album and re-released today with a 90s themed music video featuring the newest female rapper in the game, Cardi B.
The video and collaboration with Cardi B received praise from fans since midnight when it was released.
Speaking of paying tributes, Bruno tweeted himself that the video was dedicated to his favorite TV show growing up.
Fans speculated that it may have been a tribute towards Fresh Prince until he later tweeted this.
Keenen Ivory Wayans was the creator of the 90s show In Living Color. In fact, the intro of the music video is very similar to the show’s intro sequence.
