Bruno Mars may think he’s lacking in “arts and crafts,” but the newest additions to his “24K Magic World Tour” will surely make up for the lack of a “cool” poster.
The singer announced Ciara, Charlie Wilson, Ella Mai and Boyz II Men will replace Cardi B on the North American leg of his tour, after the new mom dropped out to spend more time with her daughter, Kulture.
“I was trying really hard to make a cool your poster once we got confirmation on who’s joining us on the finale of the 24k Magic Tour,” Mars wrote on a message shared to Instagram. “But in my excitement I forgot I suck at arts and crafts. Swipe left for the official announcement.”
In a hilarious Instagram post, Mars sang excerpt’s from each of his special guest’s songs during the reveal, from Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up” to Boyz II Men’s “End of the Road.”
The news comes weeks after Cardi B apologized to fans for deciding to skip the “24K Magic World Tour” she had planned to join Bruno Mars for in September.
“I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough for me to recover mentally and physically. I also thought that I’d be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing,” she wrote on Twitter.
Mars supported Cardi’s decision.
“Most important thing is you and your family’s health. I know the fans will understand,” he wrote Cardi on Twitter. “I also know we’ll share the stage when the time is right. We love you Cardi and we will play Bodak Yellow every night in your honor.”
Mars’ announcement definitely has fans looking forward to the fall:
One user tweeted: “Bruno Mars just announced who is joining him on tour, and I’m screaming! Ciara, Charlie Wilson, Ella Mai, and Boys II Men. I’m so excited for October.”
