Song of the Day #3,189: ‘That’s What I Like’ – Bruno Mars

At #2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 this week is Bruno Mars with ‘That’s What I Like,’ the second single from 24K Magic.

I like this song better than the album’s title track, which aimed for ‘Uptown Funk’ status but fell short. This one is sweeter and catchier. It has a hell of a cool video, too.

[Verse 1]
Hey, hey, hey
I got a condo in Manhattan
Baby girl, what’s hatnin’?
You and your ass invited
So gon’ and get to clappin’
So pop it for a pimp
Pop, pop it for me
Turn around and drop it for a pimp
Drop, drop it for me
I’ll rent a beach house in Miami
Wake up with no jammies (Nope)
Lobster tail for dinner
Julio serve that scampi (Julio!)
You got it if you want it
Got, got it if you want it
Said you got it if you want it
Take my wallet if you want it now

[Pre-Chorus]
Jump in the Cadillac, girl, let’s put some miles on it
Anything you want, just to put a smile on it
You deserve it baby, you deserve it all
And I’m gonna give it to you

[Chorus]
Gold jewelry shining so bright
Strawberry champagne on ice
Lucky for you, that’s what I like, that’s what I like
Lucky for you, that’s what I like, that’s what I like
Sex by the fire at night
Silk sheets and diamonds all white
Lucky for you, that’s what I like, that’s what I like
Lucky for you, that’s what I like, that’s what I like

[Verse 2]
I’m talkin’ trips to Puerto Rico
Say the word and we go
You can be my freaka
Girl, I’ll be a fleeko, mamacita
I will never make a promise that I can’t keep
I promise that your smile ain’t gon’ never leave
Shopping sprees in Paris
Everything 24 karats
Take a look in that mirror
Now tell me who’s the fairest
Is it you? (is it you?) Is it me? (is it me?)
Say it’s us (say it’s us) and I’ll agree, baby

[Pre-Chorus]
Jump in the Cadillac, girl, let’s put some miles on it
Anything you want, just to put a smile on it
You deserve it baby, you deserve it all
And I’m gonna give it to you

[Chorus]
Gold jewelry shining so bright
Strawberry champagne on ice
Lucky for you, that’s what I like, that’s what I like
Lucky for you, that’s what I like, that’s what I like
Sex by the fire at night
Silk sheets and diamonds all white
Lucky for you, that’s what I like, that’s what I like
Lucky for you, that’s what I like, that’s what I like

[Bridge]
If you say you want a good time
Well here I am baby, here I am baby
Talk to me, talk to me, talk to me
Tell me what’s on your mind (what’s on your mind)
If you want it, girl come and get it
All this is here for you
Tell me baby, tell me, tell me baby
What you tryna do

[Chorus]
Gold jewelry shining so bright
Strawberry champagne on ice
Lucky for you, that’s what I like, that’s what I like
Lucky for you, that’s what I like, that’s what I like
Sex by the fire at night (Sex by the fire at night)
Silk sheets and diamonds all white
Lucky for you, that’s what I like, that’s what I like
Lucky for you, that’s what I like, that’s what I like

    My initial reaction to the first single 24 Karot Gold was similar to yours. Good, but no Uptown Funk. And, while that still may be true, the song is immensely catchy and holds up well on repeat listening. I’m a fan of today’s song also, as well as a number of other songs on the album. Mars is a major talent and continues to impress.

  2. Daniel (the cool guy) says:

    This is one of the few songs that I haven’t yet gotten tired of hearing and feel I can (and have) listen to multiple times in a row. I love the way that Bruno captures pure emotion in a song and this one just makes me happy whenever I listen to it. I happen to think this album is stellar and I can’t wait to blast it as I drive away come April 4th (hopefully).
