Bruno Mars, who entered our lives in 2010 with his first album Doo Wops & Hooligans, and since then has achieved many successful works with his unique style, never neglects to thank his fans for their support. The other day, Bruno shared a short video of the album’s book of notes via his official Instagram account, thanking the fans after the last significant success of the album and making it a success over time. He announced now that it was time to celebrate together.
Doo Wops & Hooligans was the first studio album of American singer and songwriter Bruno Mars. Published on October 4, 2010. Almost all the songs on the album have achieved great success and become number one hits on the charts worldwide.
The first two singles released from the album, “Just the Way You Are” and “Grenade“, created great success and were at the top of the charts in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, especially in the United States. Later the other singles such as “The Lazy Song” and “Marry You” were also very popular and became smash hits. Bruno supported the success of his songs with highly elaborated and fun video clips.
Bruno Mars shared good news with his fans in the first paragraph of his last post on Instagram and announced that his first album gained huge success. Speaking briefly about the story of the album, Bruno Mars said that even though “Just The Way You Are” hit number one when Doo Wops & Hooligans album was first released, the album sold very poorly at first. After that, the album was considered as a failure, but Bruno never stopped working hard and continued to perform his songs.
As a result, he reaped the fruits of his hard work and made the album a huge success. As Bruno said, thanks to the fans, the album became the longest-charting debut album ever and has sold over 14 million worldwide. Bruno underlined the fact that life is not a race, but it is a marathon.
In the second part of his post, Bruno Mars spoke about another success his album has achieved. Another song on the album, “Grenade” was certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). So, on the 10th anniversary of his first debut album, Bruno had many reasons to celebrate with his fans.
In the final sentences of his post, he again thanked all the Hooligans for their support and for changing his life forever. He expressed that he would pray to dance together again in the shortest time. He ended the post with a swanky signature: Sincerely, Double Diamond Brunz.
Here’s what he stated:
“When “Doo Wops and Hooligans” came out “Just The Way You Are” had just gone #1. So when the album initially sold poorly, it was considered a flop. But we kept fighting, pushing and performing. Now thanks to you, Doo Wops is the longest-charting debut album ever and has sold over 14 million copies worldwide. There’s your proof that life is a marathon, not a race.
As an amazing cherry on top, “Grenade” went diamond just the other day, which makes two diamond singles on the same album.
So today we celebrate. To all the Hooligans, thank you for changing my life. I pray we’ll all be dancing together real soon.”
