What's the story?
After making guest appearances on albums by other artists like B.o.B and Travie McCoy, R&B singer Bruno Mars has released his own debut single, "JUST THE WAY YOU ARE." Like its title suggests, this tune is about a guy who accepts everything about his girl just as it is. The song is an especially good one for young girls who are critical of themselves, since Mars talks about how he even sees beauty in the things his girl doesn't like about herself: "Yeah I know when I compliment her she won't believe me / And it's so sad to think she don't see what I see."
