“I’m not going to be the same person I was this year, so that’s going to come across on my next album, and the album after that and the album after that,” Mars told MTV. “No matter what happens to the record, whether it blows up or two people buy it, I need to feel like I gave it all I’ve got. I know it’s a little cheesy, but I genuinely feel there’s no more that I can give; this was everything I had, everything I’ve learned and this is the music I love, and I’m proud of it. That’s how I wanted to walk away from this second album.”
