“Grenade” is one of my favorite tracks off of Bruno Mar’s debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans, which is on sale now (iTunes). Though it’s not as happy as “Just the Way You Are”, nor is the video quite as creative (I really love how he manipulates the tape in Just the Way You Are”). It’s a good video none-the-less and definitely worth a few minutes. After the jump read Bruno’s description of the video and get a copy of the song for yourself.
Here is Bruno’s description of the video:
“Today, I get to share with you the visual companion piece to my new single, ‘Grenade.’ The song is about loving someone so deeply, and the pain of knowing that the person you love does not feel the same. The actions in this video serve as a metaphor, and should not be taken literally. I am aware of the power of visual media, and I encourage everyone who watches this video to understand that it is an artistic interpretation of the song, and not something to imitate.”–Bruno Mars
