Similarly, Bruno Mars is releasing his second album 'Unorthodox Jukebox' on December 11th. The album is a follow-up to 2010's 'Doo-Wops & Holligans' which sold more than 6 million copies worldwide. Many of the songs, including the album's first single 'Locked out of Heaven,' have a new-wave feel to it, which will further increase the comparisons of Bruno Mars to artists like Michael Jackson.
