Watch Bruno Mars Give Adele’s ‘All I Ask’ A Dreamy ’80s Makeover

Bruno Mars joined BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge on Wednesday and offered a dreamy ’80s rendition of Adele’s 25 ballad “All I Ask,” which he co-wrote with the British vocalist.

“This song I’m about to do for ya’ll is a song that means a lot to me,” Mars says before delivering his dramatic interpretation featuring sultry synthetic beats and his signature vocal swagger. To cap off his performance, which was backed by his band the Hooligans, the R&B artist shows off some major vocal aerobics by stretching his falsetto for an impressive grand finale.
