WATCH: Bruno Mars Says Adele's a 'Diva' — but He'd Love to Work with Her Again: 'She's Incredible'
Adele may have had us at "Hello," but Bruno Mars says he took some convincing
“She walks into the studio, she’s got all this attitude, she’s a diva, she’s like, ‘I don’t want to do this. I don’t like that…'” Mars joked. “And then as soon as we hit a couple chords that she liked, we started rolling, and that’s where we got that song from.” Despite his rough start with the Grammy award-winning singer, Mars said like to work with her again.
“I don’t know what she’s waiting on man I’m like, ‘Come on, Adele. Like, send an email, let me know!” he said on the radio show.
Mars, 31, about working with the “Hello” singer on the ballad, and experiencing her powerful voice up close.
“She’s incredible,” he said. “There was a moment when she was singing in the booth — and I’m not exaggerating at all — and the water was vibrating … like, you know that scene in Jurassic Park … She’s got some pipes on her, and she’s just a superstar.”

Mars may have been in awe of the singer, but he certainly has some star power of his own. The star recently released his first single in four years, “24K Magic,” along with an album cover and accompanying music video. Mars performed the new track on the Emily Blunt-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live.
Although he hasn’t released music of his own in years, he kept his momentum going by lending his vocals to Mark Ronson’s Grammy award-winning “Uptown Funk” in 2014. Mars also appeared in this year’s Super Bowl halftime show as a guest of Coldplay (along with Beyoncé!).
