The five-time Grammy winner and the rapper, 25, released their first collaboration together, titled “Finesse,” 30 minutes ahead of its midnight release on Thursday. Originally released on Mars’ 2016 album, 24K Magic, the song — co-written and produced by the Stereotypes — has a new jack-swing inspired beat and plenty of drums.
The music video also debuts Fresh Prince of Bel-Air-inspired themes, with both stars in colorful gear and boasting paint brushes as they dance in a ’90s-set with cement floors.
Mars, 32, released the artwork for the song on Instagram Wednesday, writing, “Start your 2018 with Big Bronx Boogie Herself @iamcardib and me Midnight Tonight EST #Finesse.”
