I bet most of you are already familiar with the song “Nothin’ on You” rapped by B.o.B. and sung by Bruno Mars…

I also bet that some of you are not aware that Bruno Mars – whose real name is Peter Hernandez – is half-Filipino and half-Puerto Rican. Surprised? Well, he was born and raised in Hawaii to parents Pete and Bernie Hernandez.
The guy has paid his dues in the music biz and is reaping the rewards of his hardwork and patience…..and being associated with the big names in hip-hop/rap genre like B.o.B., Flo Rida, and Travie McCoy…even Adam Levine!
Watch out for more of Bruno Mars in the days and months to come. He is going to be big.

BTW, if you’re familiar with another hit song titled “Billionaire” by Travie McCoy, Bruno Mars is featured. And as if that wasn’t enough, he also released his solo extended EP called “It’s Better If You Don’t Understand” which contains 4 of his earlier solo tracks. Check it out or download via iTunes or Amazon.
Visit his MySpace site. The guy is going places! 😉
