Bruno Mars is a multitalented singer, songwriter, producer and musician. After co-producing and performing on two of last summer’s biggest hits (B.o.B’s “Nothin’ On You” and Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire”,) Mars’ first solo single “Just the Way You Are,” hit number 1 in multiple countries across the world and won the critically-acclaimed artist a Grammy Award for “Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.” Bruno’s 2x Platinum-certified debut album ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’ went on to claim two additional hit singles “Grenade” and “The Lazy Song.” Mars has now sold over 15 million singles worldwide and is touring internationally.

Due to a delay, Bruno Mars’ ‘It Will Rain’ Music video from the Breaking Dawn Part 1 Soundtrack will not be released tonight (Wednesday October 26th). Read below for details:
Bad news, Twilighters: You’re going to have to wait a little longer for the video for Bruno Mars’ “It Will Rain,” the first single from the “Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ soundtrack.
Originally, the clip was set to premiere Wednesday night on MTV — with a special live-stream event to follow on MTV.com — but those plans have been put on hold for the foreseeable future because the video isn’t finished just yet.
Mars himself took to Twitter on Monday (October 24) to break the news about the “Rain” delay and to beg forgiveness from all the “Twilight” fans out there.
“Hey guys, I’m still working on the ‘It Will Rain’ video,” Mars wrote. “The MTV premiere will happen in a couple weeks. Be patient for ya boy. Love y’all.”
A spokesperson for Mars’ label, Atlantic Records, could not be reached for comment on the delay, and while the news is sure to disappoint “Twilight” folks, there is a new development that will surely help soften the blow: Even though “Rain” has been pushed back, there will still be a “Breaking Dawn” video premiering Wednesday for Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years,” a song she told MTV News she wrote specifically for the film’s star-crossed protagonists, Bella and Edward.
So fret not, “Twilight” fans. You’ll still get your fix Wednesday, October 26, when Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years” video premieres at 6 a.m. ET/PT on AMTV, MTV Hits and MTV.com. And as soon as we get an update on “It Will Rain,” you’ll be the first to know about it, we promise.
