Washington - The singer released “Versace on the Floor ,” the second song from his third album 24K Magic, available Nov. 18. The title track, released Oct. 7, debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.

It’s been four years since Mars released his last album, Unorthodox Jukebox. Though he lent his vocals to Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk!” and continued to write music for artists like Adele, Mars wanted the music on 24K Magic to make an even bigger impact. “Bro, it’s the hardest,” the singer-songwriter admitted in Rolling Stone’s Nov. 17 issue. “Every beat has already been made, every rhyme has already been said, and every chord progression has already been done. I’m competing with billions of other songs...It’s like winning the lottery—you just gotta get lucky.”Mars also previewed “Versace on the Floor” for Rolling Stone. “I could play you six different versions of this song ,” he said. The original demo, which he referred to as the “poolside version,” featured Mars telling his girl they can “fly through a storm on a unicorn...Make love on a mountain, bathe in a fountain.”

 The singer laughed listening to it again. “I’m really promising!”Still, Mars wasn’t satisfied.
