TOP 10 ARTISTS OF 2010: #1 BRUNO MARS
With all the top acts at the top of their game in music this year are we out of our mind to give it to Mars? No! The out of this world talent had a stellar year with his hands on more hits than anybody. Bruno penned the massive Cee-Lo hit 'F*** You' and also ignited the start of B.O.B and Travie MCoy's solo careers. Bruno provided guitar, vocals and lyrics to two of the biggest Summer hits this year with 'Nothin' On You' and 'Billionaire'. This was even without releasing any of his own material, but when he did he gave us a great EP ('It's Better If You Don't Understand') followed by an even better LP ('Doo Wop's & Hooligans'). The album is the perfect ecletic, feel good record from the non genre specific star. The album featured greats like 'Grenade' and 'Count On Me' and a massive hit for Mars himself ('The Way You Are'). Mars hasn't even taken a break in the fall, contributing writing to the impressive Far* East Movement. With all these achievments this kid with the fedora and acoustic guitar was revered by the industry for just the way he is. Stylish, genuine and talented we loved every stroke from 'AMP's & 808's' 'Artist Of The Years' brush. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
