Bruno Mars was this close, man. THIS. Close.
“Uptown Funk” the singer-songwriter’s collab with Mark Ronson spent 14 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, but was snatched like a bad weave from the number one spot by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s “See You Again.”
Had “Uptown Funk” held on for two more weeks, it would’ve tied Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men 1995 hit “One Sweet Day” which stayed at number one for 16 consecutive weeks.
Despite coming so close, a 14 week run is impressive. “Uptown Funk” is the seventh record in history of the charts to hold down the number one spot for that long. Other songs include The Black Eyed Peas “I Got A Feeling” and Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You”
Still a congrats goes out to both Wiz and Bruno Mars. Job well done, gents.
