Benny Blanco has been writing with Bruno Mars 'as of late'.

The slightly above-average producer has been speaking to Rolling Stone about it all, saying: "I got a really cool song with him. Me and Paul [Epworth] just got together and Bruno wrote an amazing song on top of it. It kind of all came together."

"It's like some throwback Nina Simone type shit," he respect­fully explained, "It's Bruno. He can sing the A.B.C.'s and you'd be like, 'Holy fuck!' He knows how to vibe."

Perhaps that's a new genre, that good old 'throwback Nina Simone type shit'.

Anyway. Blanco has also been in the studio with Ke$ha recently, so he's been quite busy.

Odds are they were probably 'vibing' together too.
