Bruno Mars - Grenade (video)

Why break a theme when such great videos are being premiered?! Hawaiian-born singer Bruno Mars done it again, making the ladies swoon with his romantic take on relationships and their demise as he sings, "Gave you all I had/And you tossed it in the trash/You tossed it in the trash, yes you did/To give me all your love is all I ever asked Cause what you don't understand is/I’d catch a grenade for ya/Throw my hand on a blade for ya/I’d jump in front of a train for ya/You know I'd do anything for ya/I would go through all this pain/Take a bullet straight through my brain/Yes, I would die for ya baby/But you won't do the same" in his new video "Grenade."

I love the harmony when Bruno sings the hook, "Gave you all I had and you tossed it in the trash/You tossed it in the trash, you did/To give me all your love is all I ever asked;" such a sad revelation that not many people could make sound so beautiful. Bruno explained the concept of the song and video on his website today:
"I get to share with you the visual companion piece to my new single, 'Grenade.' The song is about loving someone so deeply, and the pain of knowing that the person you love does not feel the same. The actions in this video serve as a metaphor, and should not be taken literally. I am aware of the power of visual media, and I encourage everyone who watches this video to understand that it is an artistic interpretation of the song, and not something to imitate."
"Grenade" is the second official single off Bruno's debut album Do-Wops & Hooligans, available now.
