Bruno Mars took to Charlie Rose on Monday night (October 9) for a rousing acoustic performance of his No. 1 smash, "That's What I Like," and it deserves your entire attention.

Even in the simple black studio set, the R&B crooner brought the energy alongside his crew by trading in their smooth dance skills for some synchronized snapping and table slapping. It was as if some of your best friends were jamming out during your high school lunch days. Elsewhere in his appearance, the chart-topper spoke with the legendary host about the vision behind the accompanying album, 24K Magic.

"It starts with some kind of inspiration whether it's a lyric or a melody or a beat. I don't know," he said of his creative process. "['24K Magic'] was a song that I wanted to kick the door down. It's the vision I had with this album. I saw us having fun on stage. I saw us draped in silk and gold and me and my friends going up on stage and having the best time. It was important that we had the content to do so."
