According to the Just The Way You Are Songfacts, the song was originally written with Cee-Lo Green in mind, but the Gnarls Barkley singer didn't feel it was right for him.
Honolulu born Bruno Mars had already achieved considerable chart success courtesy of his guest vocals on B.o.B's No.1 smash 'Nothin' On You' and Travie McCoy's top 3 hit 'Billionaire' before 'Just The Way You Are' gave the twenty-five year old musician/producer/songwriter his first solo UK smash – it topped our chart in October 2010 and will feature on his debut album which is due for release over here in January 2011.
