Calling All My Lovelies

  • Lyrics
  • Here, Bruno Mars sends a passive-aggressive message to a girl that is playing it cool.

    I'm calling all my lovelies (calling all my lovelies)
    'Cause I can't get a hold of you
    Since you ain't thinking of me (since you ain't thinking of me)
    Oh, look what you're making me do


    The girl is the one Mars really wants to be with. However if she carries on not answering her phone, there's plenty of other ladies on his speed dial that he can call up.
  • Midway through the song Mars reaches the girl's voicemail, and the voice turns out to be that of Halle Barry. Mars has spoken of his admiration for the actress before; back in 2012 he revealed that Berry was the inspiration behind his hit "Locked Out of Heaven."
