Bruno Mars brought his golden brand of musical magic to the Saturday Night Live stage on Saturday (October 15), where he returned to the show for the first time since 2012 to perform his latest single "24K Magic," as well as debut a brand new song called "Chunky," off his forthcoming album.

The singer and his entourage kicked off his groovy, joyful party jam "24K Magic" first from backstage, Mars performing as they made their way to the stage to join a group of dancing audience members.

Later, the Unorthodox Jukebox artist premiered his new song "Chunky," a funky, early '90s-tinged R&B jam with sonic nods to groups like Color Me Badd and Boyz II Men.
