Bruno Mars Remains On Top of Singles Chart and Makes UK History
The single comes from Mars' just-released sophomore album, "Unorthodox Jukebox," which has made its SoundScan/Billboard 200 debut at No. 2 with sales in excess of 192,000 – marking the his highest first week sales debut.
"Unorthodox Jukebox" has topped British album charts, making history as the United Kingdom's fastest selling solo album of 2012.
The album's success follows the equivalent popularity of Mars' 2010 debut, "Doo-Wops & Hooligans," which proved the U.K.'s third best-selling album of 2011 and also entered the charts at No. 1.
"Locked Out Of Heaven" is currently sitting at No. 1 on the European Airplay Chart – making it the most played song on the European continent.
The single is also sitting atop Canada's Hot 100 chart. Stateside, "Heaven" marks Mars' fifth single to hit No. 1 on the BDS Pop Songs chart, tying him with Nelly and Justin Timberlake for the most leaders among solo males.
"Heaven" is also the 10th single Mars has written, produced, or performed to hit the top 5 on the overall "Hot 100." In addition, the single is Mars' ninth consecutive top 10 hit on the Billboard "Hot 100 Airplay" chart, sealing his already-established status as the male artist with the longest streak of top 10 hits as a performer since his debut.
