About this song

According to the Grenade Songfacts, Mars is so desperate to impress his hard-to-please girl on this song, that he assures her he would catch a grenade for her, along with other assorted foolhardy acts. The original inspiration for this track came from a songwriter friend of his, Benny Blanco.Follow-up single to massive chart-topper 'Just The Way You Are (Amazing)', heartbreaker 'Grenade' gave Bruno Mars his second consecutive UK No.1 single. It shot to the top of the charts on it's release in January 2011. Read more on Last.fm.
