Billboard Names Bruno Mars ‘Artist of the Year’
With 2013 drawing to a close, various publications are handing out year-end honors and Bruno Mars is on the top of many lists. Billboard chose the Hawaiian-born crooner as its 2013 Artist of the Year and for good reason. In addition to his four Grammy nominations, three singles from his Unorthodox Jukebox LP charted in the Top 100: “Locked Out of Heaven,” “Treasure,” and “When I Was Your Man.”
The pop performer also found himself at the top of several Billboard lists this year including Hot 100 Artists, Top Overall Artists, Hot 100 Singles Airplay, Hot Digital Songs, Mainstream Top 40, and Pop Digital Songs.
Men lie, women lie…numbers don’t. Congrats Bruno; we can wait to see you perform at the 2014 Superbowl halftime show!
