Doo-Wops & Hooligans is the debut studio album by American singer-songwriter Bruno Mars. It was released on October 4, 2010, by Atlantic Records and Elektra Records. After the release of the EP It's Better If You Don't Understand, Mars' writing and production team The Smeezingtons, who served as the album's executive producers, began working on the album with some producers, Needlz, Supa Dups and Jeff Bhasker. Musically, Doo-Wops & Hooligans draws from a wide variety of influences. Lyrically, the album visualizes carefree and optimistic sentiments, as well as, failed relationships, pain and loneliness. The promotion was primarily through The Doo-Wops & Hooligans Tour (2010–2012) and multiple television appearances. The records' title was chosen to reflect simplicity and appeal to both males and females.

The album received lukewarm reviews from music critics, who commended the album's resemblance to the works of Michael Jackson and Jason Mraz. On September 24, 2010, the album was made available to listen to in its entirety before its release. It was a commercial success, topping the charts in different countries worldwide, including Canada, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. In the United States, it peaked at number three on the Billboard 200 and it was the second best-selling album of 2011 in New Zealand, the third best selling record in the United Kingdom and Australia, the former with 1,2 million copies sold and the fourth best-selling album in Germany and Switzerland. It has sold over 2.62 million copies in the United States as of July 2017 and six million copies worldwide as of 2012.

The first two singles from Doo-Wops & Hooligans—"Just the Way You Are" and "Grenade"—gained international success, topping the charts in several countries worldwide, including the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Subsequent singles "The Lazy Song" and "Marry You" were commercial successes as well, charting within the top 10 of more than 10 countries worldwide, with the former topping the charts n the United Kingdom and Denmark. "Talking to the Moon" and "Count On Me" had a limited release, while "Liquor Store Blues" featuring Damian Marley and "Somewhere in Brooklyn" were promotional singles.

Doo-Wops & Hooligan has received multiple nominations since its release. It was nominated for a total of five Grammy Awards at the 54th Grammy Awards, including the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. It was also nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album and Record of the Year, the latter for the single "Grenade". It earned a nomination for Best Album Pop Rock International at the 2012 Swiss Music Awards. In 2010, About.com's Bill Lamb and Rolling Stone's Jody Rosen named Doo-Wops & Hooligans as one of the best debuts of the year.

Background and development

After the release of the hit singles "Nothin' on You" and "Billionaire" the label asked The Smeezingtons, a songwriting and record producing trio, consisting of Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine to start producing Mars' debut album giving them six months to complete it.[1][2] Nevertheless, "the demand changed" which left them with only one month to finish the entire album.[2] While establishing himself as a composer and as an artist, Mars worked with several artists which led to him spending long periods of time in the recording studio "figuring out the production and the writing process". He believes "it was training for me to put out my own album."[3]

Speaking about the album's title, Mars explained: "I have records that women are going to relate to and men are going to relate to. So doo-wops are for the girls, and hooligans are for the guys."[4] In several interviews Mars furthered the concept: "I grew up listening to my dad who loved doo-wop music", those sounds are "straight to the point" and simple, they rely on a "beautiful melody and voice" with a connection, that represents his romantic side. However, due to his young age, at that time, he liked to party which shows his Hooligans side!"[5][6] Mars stated in an interview with MTV News that he had been working on his debut album and it was completed by the date of the interview. His debut EP, It's Better If You Don't Understand, released earlier in the year, gave "a little taste of what's in store".[7]

As well as writing the lyrics, The Smeezingtons worked on the entire production of the album, along with some songwriters and producers.[1] Among these there were Needlz and Khalil Walton, who they never met but helped with the composition of the second track, "Just the Way You Are", by enchanging files between them. According to Mars, the single took him months to create even though he was only trying to tell a story, nothing "deep or poetic".[8][6] "The Lazy Song", the fifth track, was inspired by the lack of ideas for writing songs and laziness to work.[8] "Marry You", according to Lawrence, has its inspiration drawn from a spontaneous marriage idea in Vegas where a couple is running in slow-motion. The fiancé and groom left the wedding party and everyone is raving.[2] The bonus track, "Somewhere in Brooklyn", was inspired by Mars' father and New York. The track assumes that a female character is around Brooklyn, and the singer will be able to find her.[9][10]

Composition

Musically, the album is primarily pop, reggae pop and R&B.[11][12][13] However, according to several music critics, it drew influences from a diverse variety os styles, such as soul, reggae, rock, and hip hop.[11][14][15] The record was compared to the works of Michael Jackson and Jason Mraz.[15][16][17] Tracks like "Just the Way You Are", "Marry You" and "Runaway Baby" are uptempo songs, with the former being an optimistic ballad with yearning falsetto vocals, influenced by U2.[13][15][18] "Marry You" is mainly a pop song revolving around a spontaneous marriage idea, while "Runaway Baby" has a more funk pop rock and soul beat.[19][20][21] The former tackles Coldplay, while the latter Little Richard.[15] "The Lazy Song", another uptempo, is credited as a reggae track,[13][19] described as an anthem "to sloth" and "surf stoner's" borrowing from Sugar Ray.[22][13][16] The second single, "Grenade", is a darker track with a masochistic heartbreak message.[11][19] It channels Michael Jackson's "Dirty Diana", Kanye West's production and Shakira's style.[15][23][24]

One of the album's promotional single, "Liquor Store Blues", is a reggae track that fuses Michael Jackson with Bedouin Soundclash, while the single "Count On Me" is a frendship anthem channeling Israel Kamakawiwoʻole's "Over the Rainbow".[14][21][25] The third track on the album, "Our First Time", has been compared to previous works done by "Boyz II Men",[26] Al B. Sure!, D'Angelo and Sade.[11][14][15] It presents itself as a reggae and R&B recording.[14][26] "Talking to the Moon" is a power ballad that shows the singer's pain and loliness, mainly in the chorus.[13][19] The last track on the record, "The Other Side", features B.o.B and Cee-Lo Green. It is frequently noted as the album's highlight, having the most experimental, complicated and best production.[17][27][22] "Somewhere in Brooklyn", which was only released in Germany as a promotional single, was included as a bonus track on several Doo-Wops & Hooligans editions.[28][9][29]

Singles

"Just the Way You Are" was released as the album's lead single commercially worldwide on July 20, 2010, through digital distribution.[30] The song was critically acclaimed with reviewers complimenting its piano balladry and the love lyrics associated with it.[18][31] It achieved commercial success by topping charts in the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, as well as reaching the top ten in several other countries.[32][33][34][35] "Just the Way You Are" received a Grammy award in the Best Male Pop Vocal Performance category.[36]

"Grenade" was released as the second single from the album. It had previously been premiered as the album's second and final promotional single on September 28, 2010 prior to its stand-alone release. [37] It was also well received by the critics, most of whom have praised Mars' vocals abilities.[38][23] The single achieved greater success than "Just the Way You Are" by topping the charts in almost all the countries it was released to.[39][40][41] The song became Mars' third non-consecutive number one on the Hot 100.[42] In 2012, "Grenade" received three Grammy nomiantions in the categories of Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance.[43]

"The Lazy Song" was the album's third single.[44] The song received mixed reviews. Some critics found it to have a laid back groove while the others criticized it for being a "filler" and its empty lyrical theme and thus being an embarrassment to the album.[45][46][11] The song topped the United Kingdom and Denmark charts.[47][48] It has also reached the top five in the United States, Austria, Canada, and New Zealand and the top ten in others.[32][34][48] The associated music video for the song was shot as a lone continuous and uninterrupted shot with Mars goofing around with five monkeys.[49] An alternative video version was made and features Leonard Nimoy on his lazy daily routine.[50]

"Talking to the Moon" became an official single, only in Brazil, following its appearance on the soundtrack of the Brazilian telenovela Insensato Coração (Irrational Heart) from 2011.[51] The song reached the top position in Billboard Brasil Hot Pop & Popular and the Brasil Hot 100 Airplay. The song spent nine weeks at number one on the latter chart,[52] while it topped the former chart for 22 weeks.[53][54][55] The song received mixed reviews from critics who praised its slow pace and lyrics; however, it was criticized for its overwhelming production.[19][56]

"Marry You" was released as a single except in the United States, despite its strong airplay on mainstream and adult top 40 radio stations.[57] The song was critically appreciated for its catchy tune, described as "instantly hummable melody and a sing-songy chorus", and reminiscence of the 60's pop.[19][58] The song has reached the top ten in countries such as Australia, Canada and New Zealand and the top twenty in others.[59][34]

"Count On Me" was announced as the sixth overall single with a radio release date of November 7, 2011, in Australia.[60] The song has reached the top ten in Austria, Portugal and Spain.[61][62] It has also reached the top twenty in Australia and New Zealand.[61] The single has received critical acclaim for its arrangement and "uplifting" vibe and comparasions were established with "Over The Rainbow" by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole.[63][64][21]

To promote the album, Mars did several performances worldwide. The first was on Bowery Ballroom in New York City on August 25, 2010, with his four-piece band.[78] In early October, he performed "Just The Way You Are" and a medley of "Nothing On You/Grenade" for the first time on national television on Saturday Night Live.

Doo-Wops & Hooligans received lukewarm reviews from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 61, based on 13 reviews.[96] Leah Greenblatt from Entertainment Weekly gave Doo-Wops & Hooligans a B+. He praised Mars' "instant-access melodies", "creamy" productions and "sly snatches of dance-floor swagger". Nevertheless, Greenblatt stated that some music styles present in the record didn't match the singer.[11] Alex Young of Consequence of Sound called Doo-Wops & Hooligans "fulfilling [with] very few holes" awarding the album a B–. The critic found Mars' vocals to be "gold".[26] The Telegraph's Tom Gockelen-Kozlowski considered the record has a "bundle of top-drawer melodies, making commercial success all but a certainty", giving the album four stars out of five.[100] Jody Rosen of Rolling Stone called the album "the year's finest debut" with "10 near-perfect" tracks, awarding it three and half starts out of five. The reviewer believes that the recordings "deliver pleasure without pretension".[12] Rosen and The Boston Globe's Ken Capobianco, commended Mars' vocal performance and talent for composing melodies. The latter, found the debut to be " promising", yet disappointed with the lack of an autobiographical aspect to it.[22] Sean Fennessey of The Washington Post labeled it "effortlessly tuneful" and a good start to a "durable career".[17] The New York Times's Jon Caramanica dubbed Doo-Wops & Hooligans a "fantastically polyglot record that shows him to be a careful study across a range of pop songcraft", applauding its diverse range of influences.[15]

In a mixed review, Tim Sendra from AllMusic praised the majority of the songs on the record due to their "laid-back groove", however, he found the quality to drop when Mars "turns up the volume and boosts the tempo". He gave it three stars out of five. Sendra called it "an uneven debut ... [that] doesn't tap into his potential as a writer or a producer".[27] Scott Kara of The New Zealand Herald enjoyed the first two tracks of the album, but noticed that the record could have had more of both titular elements to raise its "potency". Kara gave Doo-Wops & Hooligans a rating of three out of five.[24] Tony Clayton-Lea from The Irish Times thought that the record is "full of the kind of catchy modern pop that is impossible to dislike or dislodge." He continued by saying "most of the tunes are cocktail bangers hot enough to melt ice."[101] The Independent 's Andy Gill believed that the record "seeks too hard to display Mars' multifaceted talents".[98]

Eric Henderson writing for Slant Magazine criticized Doo-Wops & Hooligans, saying it "manages to wear out its welcome about halfway through", calling it an attempt to "please just about everybody." He awarded the album 2,5 stars out of 5.[21] With the same rating, Jamie Milton of musicOMH pointed out some flaws such as it "involves throwing everything into the fire", which was seen as "a contrast taken too far". The critic also drew attention to the "opportunistic" market that apart the "forthcoming trends in pop, there’s a song on the album pitched to take grasp of it all."[99] Q, which rated the album two out of five stars, wrote that "mostly, he has little to say."[102] The Guardian's Alexis Petridis, who shared the previous rate, gave the album an harsh critic due to his "saccharine sound" and Mars' poor ability with lyrics. The critic emphasizes that the record should have been better and more "groundbreaking".[97] The Scotsman and Mike Diver of BBC stated Mars could have made an album for the masses to appreciate.[103][104] The former used the previous statement to explain why the artist didn't made something more "sophisticated".[103] On the other hand, Diver assumed the album was aimed to teenagers instead of "anyone with life and love experience beyond passing notes around at the back of class".[104]

Accolades

In 2011, at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards the record's lead single, "Just The Way You Are", earned a Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.[105] In the same year, the song also won an award for Top Radio Song at the Billboard Music Awards.[106] Doo-Wops & Hooligans received a nomination for International Album of the Year at the 2011 Danish GAFFA Awards, Best Album Pop Rock International at the 2012 Swiss Music Awards and two nominations, one for Best Pop Vocal Album at the and the other for Album of the Year both at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards.[107][108][109] At the same ceremony, the record's second release, "Grenade", earned three different nominations, Record of the Year, Grammy Award for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.[109] Rolling Stone's Jody Rosen and Bill Lamb from About.com considered the album to be one of the best debuts of the year. The latter praised Mars' vocals and most of the tracks' melody, dubbing them "surefire". Lamb concluded by saying that this album is just the beginning of Mars' "creative artist", adding that on the follow up recording, Mars could "stretch the horizons further and deliver truly memorable songs".[110] The former dubbed the songs as "near-perfect", noticing they "move from power ballads to bedroom anthems". Rosen finished by saying "Call it bubblegum that eats like a meal."[12] In November 2013, the Doo-Wops & Hooligans artwork designed by Nick Bilardello was placed at number 31 as one of "The 50 Best Pop Album Covers of the Past Five Years". Susan Cheng believed that this record proved that Mars was going to have an enduring career as it is "depicted in the path left behind by a black jet on the cover" of the record. Cheng while describing the album cover, gave the reason for its placement on the list, the "sunny hues convey a sense of self-confidence and the singer's outlook on the road ahead", she continued "the silhouette in the lower right, presumably a representation of Bruno Mars, reveals humility in the wake of so much success."[111]
