Bruno Mars Hits #1 With ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’

Published: Wednesday 12th Dec 2012 by David

Bruno Mars is the King of the charts!

Well, at least as far this week is concerned. Hours after the release of his new album ‘Unorthdox Jukebox’, the Pop star has secured his fourth US #1 single with the love song, ‘Locked Out Of Heaven‘.

Chart check below…

Pushing Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’ out of the top spot, ‘Heaven’ rises one spot from #2 to score Mars his fourth #1 single, following ‘Grenade‘, ‘Just The Way You Are’, and ‘Nothin’ On You’.

If it spends another week atop the competitive chart, Mars may see himself given much cause to celebrate, with ‘Jukebox’ set to top the Billboard 200 with sales circa the 140,000 to 160,000 units figure.

    and he is predicted to sell between 140k – 160k first week, tgj is so biased …….

    • JAZMINE SULLIVANS FAN December 12, 2012

      I AGREE

    • Mario December 12, 2012

      It makes no sense to complain everyone knows that by now.

    • Noel December 12, 2012

      We all know that they’re biased…but there’s also a difference…this his second album, and it’s projected to sell more than his first one (which was in the 55K area)…so that’s a win win for him. It will probably debut at number 2…maybe number one next week.

    • TinaMinaj December 14, 2012

      Oh please shut up! They might be biased when it comes to other things but this is not one of them. Considering this is only his second album, those are very good gures and a definite increase in sales from his first. Please use your head.

    Congrats Bruno

    Bruno Mars is a dork and his music is cheesy, but at least it ain’t Rihanna/Kesha/Katy/Gaga. These days it’s not about whose music is good, it’s about whose music isn’t the worse.

    So congrats Bruno…I guess…

  5. Queen Navy December 12, 2012

    140-160k, really? So add him to the list of another one who Riri is doing better than!

  6. J December 12, 2012

    Great song! Well done Bruno!!’

  7. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! December 12, 2012

    Chart News ‏@chartnews
    US chart preview: @TaylorSwift13’s Red is expected to be #1 next week

    So Taylor is expected to out sell Burno mars next week.

    I’ve got my fingers crossed this happens.

  8. ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ December 12, 2012

    Congrats I really love this song and he’s so talented. In other chart news AIWFCIY just peaked at #29 (highest peak for this song)!! Congrats Mimi and Bruno. I wish his first week sales were higher though……

  12. Suicide Blonde December 12, 2012

    Congratulations to him, I’m glad it is # 1, because this is the song that got me interested in his music.

  13. Messiah Carey December 12, 2012

    Congratulations to Bruno, he deserves this!

    Oan: Queen Mariah debuted #29 on the billboard Hot 100. 😀

    • Messiah Carey December 12, 2012

      Oh my! Looks like @MC up there beat me to the news, lol. Carry on…

    • ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ December 12, 2012

      Yes! It makes her the 4th person with the most Top 40 — 39 Top 40s breaks ties with Britney (I think) and Rihanna both with 38 Top 40s.

  14. WJ December 12, 2012

    I’m so happy for him! This song is an instant classic!

    On Billboard 200, I think Michael Bublé may outsell him as well, but a #1 album would be very VERY deserved.

    • That B*tch (Lol @ Walter denying Kenya Moore) December 12, 2012

      Its on ok song. I wouldnt go as far to call it a classic.

  15. That B*tch (Lol @ Walter denying Kenya Moore) December 12, 2012

    Good for Bruno.
    Love his music but wasn’t too interested in the song because of the undercover, subtle sexual undertones.

    • PSA (FAF) December 12, 2012

      I rather it be undertone than the over-doing of his R&B counterparts .. & these pop b****** talking about grinding & f****** on everything LOL

  16. skintightjeans December 12, 2012

    I LOVE him! He’s super talented.

  17. Mrs Robyn Brown (BEYONCE’S WEAVE) December 12, 2012

    I can’t believe I didn’t know this album is out. Thank God for iTunes, at least I know I won’t find it sold out.

  18. Luvly1 December 12, 2012

    So sam calls rihanna out for selling 239 but bruno prolly sell 140 & rihanna is the flop that gets shaded?
    This is too funny lol!

    • PSA (FAF) December 12, 2012

      I see no Bruno fans in stan wars talking about #phuckyofave

      so yes, seem to me like Rihanna should have sold atleast 300k considering y’all like to call her a

      Global superstar .. KI !

    • T.K. December 13, 2012

      Considering Bruno only sold 50k with his first album, reaching 140k is arguably an achievement. And this is Rihanna’s 7th album, compared to Bruno’s 2nd. ‘A Girl like Me’ (Rihanna’s 2nd album) sold 115,000 in its first week, so 140-160k ain’t bad at all!

    • BrunoMarsKingOfPop December 14, 2012

      The jokes on you so i wouldn’t be laughing if i was you. Like @TK said it’s his second album, i swear you Rihanna fans just never put figures into perspective..

    I Liked ” Treasure” , “Moonshine” and ” Money Make her Smile the most OFF his new album.

  25. EzraJKnight (Now accepting “help Honeychildplease wig game” donations December 12, 2012

    I like Bruno Mars, those are pretty huge debut sales for someone that just got into the mainstream 2 years ago. I can’t wait to check out the rest of the CD. I think Bruno and Kanye should make a track together, or at least Kanye can make a remix to Locked out of heaven.

  26. Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys December 12, 2012

    Good news Sam!

    Stay, Rihanna’s next single, released January 7th 2013 has debut at number 8 on the official UK chart. Where is Beyonce new single ? Or Rita Whora radiaactive?

  27. mobwife: brass knuckles & nunchucks December 12, 2012

    Again, WHY is Bruno Mars ALL OF A SUDDEN considered R&B? What makes him or his sound R&B, his love for James brown? 0_o I simple don’t get it?

    I like him but this song is just not it IMO! I have no dountt hat Diamond will return to the #1 position after this pre-CD released #1 Single. Isn’t this what happens these days to all of the Singles Pop Stars release just prior to the release of a new CD. All of a sudden their Single hits #1! All hail the POWERS THAT BE! LOL

    • T.K. December 13, 2012

      Well he was signed to Motown Records when he was younger, and most of the artists that he writes and produces for are R&B artists, such as Brandy, Lloyd, Cee-Lo (e.g. Forget You), Melanie Fiona, Alicia Keys, etc. Yes, he’s usually categorised under the ‘Pop’ genre, but some of the songs on his new album, like ‘Treasure’, and ‘Moonshine’ are way more R&B than a lot of the songs ‘R&B’ artists are putting out right now (*ahem* Usher, Ne-Yo, etc).

  28. Mrs Robyn Brown (Beyonce’s Weave) December 12, 2012

    WTF this new iTunes update is f****** slow, I cannot get my Bruno Mars fix.

  29. Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys December 12, 2012

    HA HA HA HA HA HA Rihanna has two singles in the UK top 10. This will officially be confirmed on sunday. Diamonds is number 6 and Stay has flown straight into the top 10 at number 8. It is not even officially out till January 7th 2013/ This Stay is gonna be the biggest single of Rih career. She is getting even bigger. Stay, like Diamonds, does not even have a video. We do not know, if she is even gonna make a video. When she performs Stay, next week, on the voice final, it will go number 1 in the USA. Rita Whora has never has that in the UK and Beyonce has not either. Now, Rih is topping charts with no video, whlle you fave has to put her song in pepsi commercials

    Wen pepsi look at the global itunes chart ,, World chart and Billboard they are feeling really stupid. All this hype for for beyonce ( which has died down ) but Rih singles are getting even bigger. And rih does not even need promotion. Now, b**** is not even making videos and she still goes number 1. Now what beyonce?

    PS: Where is the beyonce single? It is like she is scared to let us hear it. Like she is watching What Rih next single will do. Well, Stay is selling faster than Diamonds. Now what bEYONCE? Now f****** what?

    • Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys December 12, 2012

      Diamonds is the number 1 song on the global itunes chart and Stay has jumped to 68 on the global itunes chart. This means she will now have a second Global number 1 with Stay – and this jam is gonna be even BIGGER AND SLAY THE TOP 5 FOR 6 MONTHS, while beyonce and her superbowl come and go. Pepsi must be feeling really stupid, alll that hype about , her biggest ever era, but she is getting slayed by a girl, who does not even need promo to sell. She top 10 in the UK with a song that has no video and diamonds went number 1 all over the WW with no video.

      Diamonds is Rih biggest ever song and it has been number 1 for 7 weeks. Rih getting bigger, while beyince has declined. Even during IAGGGB AND DIL, beyonce was not ruling charts as easy as Rih.

    • BrunoMarsKingOfPop December 14, 2012

      Please get that pill of rubbish out of this post! This is about the soon to be King Of Pop!
      You seem so desperate for Rihanna to do better than Beyonce. Why is that so? Validation? At the end of the day she will never be as talented as her so please enough..

      Is this how it always is on this site???

  30. Mrs Robyn Brown (Beyonce’s Weave) December 12, 2012

    F*** you iTunes, F*** you Apple, F*** you F*** you F*** you.

    Rihanna to get animated in new film

    Film star … Rihanna is now moving into animation
    Published: 21st June 2012
    RIHANNA will take on her first animation film role in Happy Smekday.
    The Bajan superstar and The Big Bang Theory actor Jim Parsons will lend their voices to the lead roles in the upcoming DreamWorks animation about a friendly alien race who invade the Earth in order to hide from their enemy.
    Tim Johnson – who directed popular animation films Antz and Over The Hedge – is on board as director and Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember are writing the screenplay, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
    The comedy is an adaptation of Adam Rex’s popular book The True Meaning of Smekday.
    The plot will see an outcast alien (Parsons) go on the run across America with a human girl (Rihanna) after he accidentally informs the enemy of the aliens’ whereabouts.

    Yaaaaaaaay! Love Bruno, love this his album, love this song (with Treasure)!
    I hope he’ll sell more though

  33. JOHNVIDAL December 13, 2012

    Yaaaaaaaaassssssss talent at #1 on singles charts for once! haha
    He deseved a #1 on albums too but it doesn´t look like it´s gonna happen. He should do bigger numbers. Industry is dying. I mean we are in Xmas season and most of the weeks the #1 album is only doing 100,000-200,000 copies…

    • CHUDDS December 13, 2012

      What. The. F***! Sales have been extremely dismal this holiday season. This is the time of the year where people used to release their albums expecting to sell 300k PLUS! It saddens me that the only people selling are f****** Taylor Swift & One Direction. I mean, what the f***? Bruno deserves to sell more!!! Oh well, I’m sure his album will spit out three or four more smashes and he’ll reach platinum status. Smh!!!

    • BrunoMarsKingOfPop December 14, 2012

      It really is sad. Hopefully things start to turn around bit by bit. Here’s to hoping 2013 ushers in better things for the music industry
