''It's a heartbreaking, heartbreak song, and I think everyone can relate to that. You're so in love with this woman and you don't understand, 'What am I doing wrong? What am I not giving to you? I'll go as far as putting a bullet in my brain for you, and why can't I get that kind of love in return? That’s one of my favorite songs on the album, my personal favorite.'' - Bruno Mars
''The drums in ‘Grenade’ came from a combination of my MPC and some software drums, and I created the piano sound in the Fantom. The rest of the synth sounds came from the Virus, and I use the V‑synth and the MicroKorg on pretty much everything. Bruno and I played the keyboards and Brown played the bass. He's an incredible musician who has a great feel and he can play everything.'' - Ari Levine (songwriter)
