Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out Of Heaven” Stays On Top Of Billboard Charts


Bruno Mars’ rejection from heaven may be a God-send as the pop crooner continues to slay on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts.

His latest single “Locked Out Of Heaven” has stayed in the top spot for its second consecutive week, marking the Grammy Award winner’s fourth consecutive No. 1 single. The track comes fresh off his sophomore effort Unorthodox Jukebox which made its SoundScan/Billboard 200 debut at No. 2 with sales in excess of 192,000 — the singer/songwriter/producer/musician’s highest first week sales debut, AP reports.

Across the pond, Mars’ second LP also reigns on top of the British album charts, making history as the United Kingdom’s fastest selling solo album of 2012.

Last Tuesday (Dec. 18), the fedora-loving serenader unveiled his next single “When I Was Your Man” on NBC’s singing competition “The Voice,” only for the track to jump into the Top 10 on iTunes within 48 hours.

Musical success is nothing new for Mars, whose debut Doo-Wops & Hooligans received global praise and earned the star racks on racks of accolades including a “Best Male Pop Vocal Performance” Grammy Award (for “Just The Way You Are”), an American Music Award for “Pop or Rock Music/Favorite Male Artist,” and a 2012 People’s Choice Award (for “Favorite Male Artist”).
