Like his monster hit "Uptown Funk," "24K Magic" is a joyful party song which finds Bruno Mars tearing up the town. This time, he's "a dangerous man with some money in my pocket," which he's used to buy the finest in pimpwear: a mink coat, a pinkie ring, and the finest shoes Inglewood, California has to offer. It's going to be a good night.
"24K," which Mars renders in Roman numerals on the album (XXIV K), refers to 24 karat gold, which is the highest purity. The "24K Magic" is what he and his crew are bringing to the party. The title isn't purely figurative: they're also wearing lots of (presumably 24 karat) gold, including the "Cuban links" chains Mars is sporting.
The first single and title track to Mars' third album, "24K Magic" was released on October 7, 2016. A few days earlier, Mars posted on Instagram: "You can call it my first single, but I call it the invitation to the party."
