What is Bruno Mars’ net worth? He’s only been around a handful of years, but guess what, Bruno Mars is worth a lot! Born Peter Gene Hernandez in 1985 in Honolulu, Hawaii, Bruno was surrounded by music growing up.
His father was a Latin percussionist from Brooklyn and his mother was a singer. Like Will Smith, Dre. Dre, and Lil Wayne, Bruno Mars earned his nickname because of his personality. He received the ‘Bruno’ nickname when he was a baby because he was always confident, strong-willed and a little brute.
Bruno started playing around on various musical instruments as a kid, and at the age of 4, he joined his family’s musical act as an Elvis impersonator. Bruno moved to Los Angeles after he graduated high school. It was not an easy move. He struggled during the first few years and didn’t find the success he thought he would.
Bruno Mars was unhappy so he turned to songwriting. Needless to say, moving to Hollywood did not increase Bruno Mar’s net worth as he imagined.
At some point during his time in L.A., a friend introduced him to songwriter Phillip Lawrence. He agreed to help Mars compose material, and it didn’t take long for them to present an original song to a record label. The label liked it but wanted one of their own artists to perform it, and since Bruno agreed to sell it.
He started writing some very popular songs, including Flo Rida’s ‘Right Round’ and Travie McCoy’s ‘Billionaire’ song. After being the secret genius behind some very popular songs, Mars finally found his own success with his song ‘Nothin’ on You’ in 2010. It topped the Billboard singles chart and transformed Bruno from songwriter to mainstage performer. Not only had he become as popular as Beyonce and Eminem, but Bruno Mars’ net worth was also growing.
He released his debut studio album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans, in late 2010 and received positive reviews from critics. The album peaked at number three on the Billboard 200 and has sold over six million copies worldwide. The album produced hits like Just The Way You Are and Grenade.
His second studio album, Unorthodox Jukebox, was released in 2012, and to no one’s surprise, it peaked at number one on the Billboard 200. It was the fourth best-selling album of 2013 and won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album. He had become a household name like Will Smith and Jay Z.
And then in 2016, he did it all over again with his third studio album, 24K Magic. The album stayed atop the R&B and hip hop charts in the United States for 21 weeks.
At the 60th Grammy Annual Grammy Awards, he took home the award for Best R&B Album and Best Album. Mars knows how to make hits, and that has made him a very rich man.
