Bruno Mars and Cardi B is breaking the internet on this Throwback Thursday morning with their new visual to the song “Finesse”.

If you are a Bruno Mars fan like myself, you know how Bruno has a magic touch with connecting with his fans and making hits that make you rush to the dance floor. The original track is on Bruno’s sophomore album, 24K Magic. This new album gives you a ton of vintage vibes.

Its also only right that Bruno selects the Scarlet raptress Cardi B for the Remix.  Their energy on set compliments each other perfectly.

Bruno Mars dedicates this eye popping music video to what he considers to be his favorite T.V shows of all time.


“Finesse” has a lot of nostalgic 90’s vibes.  So it’s only right that the video underlines that.

The video pays homage to the 90’s show, In Living Color as the set is a replica of the In Living Color stage.  The dapper duo rocks 90s fashion in colorful clips while breaking out some incredible choreography.

By London “The Branding Blogger”


The time has finally arrived for all Pixar fans and most importantly Ellen DeGeneres has been eagerly anticipating..  For those who may have been living under a rock (,like myself) Ellen is the voice of Dory and she’s been heavily pushing for a sequel for years.  Well the time has come my friends, where the hints were finally received by Hollywood.  Yes, the rumors are true.  Pixar has made a sequel to Finding Nemo and it will be out in theaters in June 17, 2016!

Check the exclusive trailer for Pixar’s Finding Dory


In Finding Nemo, Nemo was lost in the big blue and his father, Marlon made it his duty to find him.  From the looks of the trailer above, I speculate that Finding Dory will be about Dory’s quest to find herself by tracking her family down.

Since it’s release on Ellen’s page, the trailer has  over 7 million  views on YouTube and “Finding Dory” has over 17 million results on Google within .48 seconds.  Needless to say, there is a gigantic buzz around this sequel to Finding Nemo.
