CHART SPOTLIGHT. The US songwriting team The Smeezingtons hardly pass for lazy as it beat Adele on Music Week’s tally of the top Q1 songwriters in the UK. Following “Grenade,” the latest production for Bruno Mars is titled “The Lazy Song.”
Taken off the set Doo-Wops & Hooligans, it’s the latest string of hits from Mars. The Smeezingtons also produce Cee Lo Green’s “Forget You” and Mars’ “Just the Way You Are (Amazing).”
The track will be released as a single on May 9 in the UK, but has already peaked at No.15 based on downloads. The hit peaked at No.11 on the Billboard Hot 100.
