First listen: Bruno Mars turns up the heat with 'Young Girls'
On "Saturday Night Live" last month, Bruno Mars followed his performance of "Locked Out of Heaven" -- the delightfully Police-ish lead track from next month's "Unorthodox Jukebox" -- with a slow-and-low piano-ballad take on the album's second single, "Young Girls." It was pretty but a bit slight, not unlike the singer's 2010 smash, "Just the Way You Are" (which nonetheless topped the Hot 100 and sold over 5 million copies in the United States alone).
