Bruno Mars Breaks Male Top 40 Record With Sixth #1

Posted by - 07:42 PM on 04/01/13
Bruno Mars has surpassed Justin Timberlake and Nelly for most male number one Top 40 singles, as "When I Was Your Man" marks his sixth this week. Overall, Rihanna and Katy Perry are both tied for the record with nine each.
Bruno Mars rewrites Billboard chart history, as "When I Was Your Man" rises 2-1 on the Nielsen BDS-based Mainstream Top 40 radio airplay tally. The song marks Mars' sixth No. 1, pushing him past Nelly and Justin Timberlake for the most leaders among solo male artists in the chart's 20-year archives. (Katy Perry and Rihanna lead all acts with nine No. 1s each.)

I love me some Bruno, but honestly that song doesn't do much for me, and I'm really tired of hearing it everywhere. Its basically just the male version of "Someone Like You". I'm hoping for Gorilla, Treasure, or If I Knew as singles in the future.

Why doesn't Elvis (18) count again? Difference between #1 in Top 100 and Top 40 Radio #1?

I guess I can't complain too much considering Bruno Mar's new album is actually kind good.
