As Bruno Mars fans celebrate the upcoming return of the "Versace on the Floor" singer to the Philippines, a local artist is hoping to share some of the spotlight.

Last week, Jensen and the Flips frontman Jensen Gomez took to Twitter to express his hope of opening for Mars' upcoming show. The English translation of his tweet: "I hope there's a chance for us to open for Bruno Mars. If #BrunoXFlips trends, will they notice us?"

Since Gomez shared his post, Flips fans have shown their support for the local R&B act with retweets and likes on the social site.

Bruno Mars will make his return to Manila on May 3, 2018, at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
