    After a week of hype on social media Bruno Mars released his first single in four years, "24K Magic," late Thursday night.

    The song is the first single from Mars' third studio album — also titled 24K Magic — set to drop on Nov. 18. Mars and Cameron Duddy also co-directed "24K Magic's" music video, filmed at the Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    "You can call it my first single," the 30-year-old musician said, "but I call it the invitation to the party."

    "24K Magic" was written and produced by Shampoo Press & Curl, with additional production by The Stereotypes.
