Bruno Mars Makes Billboard Chart History with His Sixth Number One Hit [VIDEO]
It’s only been three years since Lite 98.7 started playing music from Bruno Mars and now he has set another chart record. Thanks to his latest hit, “When I Was Your Man,” Bruno has just notched his sixth #1 single on Billboard’s Pop Songs chart. That’s more than any other solo male artist in the 20-year history of Billboard’s Pop Songs chart.
The previous record was five number ones, shared by Justin Timberlake and rapper Nelly. Bruno now tops them both. But Bruno does have a ways to go to beat the all-time record holders: Katy Perry and Rihanna both have nine #1 hits on that chart.
The Bruno’s Mars #1 hits that you hear on Lite 98.7 are: “Grenade,” “Just the Way You Are,” “It Will Rain,” “Locked Out of Heaven” and now “When I Was Your Man.” Not bad for a guy who first appeared on the Billboard Pop Songs chart and your favorite radio station just a few years ago.
