Mars, 30, whose last music release was the megahit “Uptown Funk,” which he collaborated on with Mark Ronson at the end of 2014, also dropped a music video for the new song on Thursday night. The colorful clip features a “what happens in Vegas ends up in this music video” theme.

On Monday, October 3, the singer tweeted that his album was done and teased the new song on Instagram writing, “You can call it my first single, but I call it the invitation to the party.”

The “Grenade” singer tweeted out the video on Thursday night, writing, “Chapter 3 begins.”

The music video kicks off with Mars landing in Sin City on a private jet with his crew, who are soon joined poolside by a group of bikini-clad women. “I’m a dangerous man with some money in my pocket,” he warns before singing about “24 karat magic in the air.” He is then shown cruising down the strip in a convertible, hitting a casino, dancing down a hotel hallway in a robe, and taking to the famous Bellagio hotel fountain on a jet ski.

The four-time Grammy winner — who memorably had a mini dance-off with Beyoncé while performing at the 2016 Super Bowl halftime show — is set to appear on Saturday Night Live on October 15.
