Bruno Mars has become a household name over the last six years, bringing us huge pop gems like ‘Just The Way You Are,’ ‘Treasure’ and ‘Uptown Funk.’ In fact, seven of his singles are listed among the best-selling singles of all time. Not bad, huh?
This week Bruno announced the UK leg of his 24K Magic World Tour and left fans buzzing to hear the star’s biggest hits live. But did you know there are plenty of songs released by other artists that he helped write? Check out 10 of the best below.

All I Ask – Adele
As a man pretty famous for writing amazing ballads (‘When I Was Your Man,’ anyone?) it probably isn’t too much of a surprise that he helped write this beauty for Adele‘s latest album 25.
Love Me – Justin Bieber
An oldie but a goodie, ‘Love Me’ was the first single from Bieber‘s debut studio release My World in 2009. Perhaps we have Bruno to thank for Bieber Fever?!
Can We Dance – The Vamps
We all love a boy band, including Bruno Mars apparently! He helped pen this huge hit for The Vamps back in 2013.
Forget You – Cee Lo Green
Released all the way back in 2010 (yep, you are that old) this was a huge hit for Cee Lo, reaching the top 10 in 13 countries including number one in the UK.
Get Sexy – Sugababes
This song may not be one of the Sugababes‘ most well-known hits (and boy did they have some bangers), but once you hear it again, it’ll be hard not to sing and dance along. Bruno also helped write their 2010 single ‘Wear My Kiss,’ which to be honest was completely forgettable.
Lift Off – Jay Z & Kanye West
Not just a writer for pop stars, Bruno has shared his talents with the likes of Jay-Z and Kanye for ‘Lift Off,’ a song from their popular Watch The Throne album.
Right Round – Flo Rida
We’re not gonna lie; this is probably one of our favourite songs on this list. Yaasss Flo Rida, what an absolute tune! Is it just us or does it remind anyone else of The Hangover?
Who Dat Girl – Flo Rida ft Akon
Not another Flo Rida song, we hear you cry. Hell to the yeah! While this one may not be quite as well known as ‘Right Round’, we think you’ll agree that is still a classic of our time (okay maybe not, but it’s pretty catchy).
Tears Always Win – Alicia Keys
Recorded for her fifth studio album Girl On Fire in 2012, ‘Tears Always Win’ has been met with much critical acclaim. It’s easy to hear the smooth Bruno Mars influence throughout this brilliant track.
Young, Wild & Free – Wiz Khalifa & Snoop Dogg
You’d be forgiven for not realising that Bruno actually sings in this song too as it’s quite hard to spot, but if you listen carefully in the chorus, you might just hear it.
So it’s official, it is literally impossible for Bruno Mars to write a bad song. Where can we buy some talent like this, please?!
