Bruno Mars Dethrones Justin Timberlake On UK Airplay Chart / MNEK & Rihanna Make Substantial Gains

Published: Thursday 28th Mar 2013 by David

As far as Pop’s boys are concerned, the UK Airplay chart is shaping up to be all flavours of fruitful this week with the Top 5 dominated by the genre’s leading ‘divos’, and the Top 20 welcoming one of the UK’s fastest rising chart staple.

Want all the details?

Meet us after the jump…

In at #1, Bruno Mars’When I Was Your Man’ dethrones Justin Timberlake‘s smash hit ‘Mirrors’ with 4,822 spins in the last week and a sweet 84.35 million impressions.

Beating the ‘Suit & Tie’ Prince by 166 spins, Mars’ ascent to the top also saw him surpass plays nabbed by Olly Murs’ ‘Army Of Two’ and his very own ‘Locked Out Of Heaven‘ which closes the Top 5 with 3,655 spins in the last seven days.

Elsewhere, Brit Pop hero MNEK continues to soar up the chart by way of the Duke Dumont led cut ‘Need U’ which also features ‘Find A Boy‘ singer AME.  Rising five spots up since last week, the jam now sits pretty with 1,129 spins and an audience of 33.23 million.

This, marking the latest piece of good news for the singer/songwriter responsible for Misha B‘s R&B #2 single ‘Home Run’ and The Wanted‘s ‘Ill Be Your Strength’.

Four spots above ‘Need U’ sees Rihanna‘s ‘Stay‘ occupy #8 with 38.85 million impressions,while her Urban jam ‘Pour It Up’ edges nearer the 1 million sold mark in the US with combined sales of 753,301 in the US.

    WOW POUR IT UP IS NEAR PLATINUM? THE REMIX WILL BE PLATINUM TOO – it is selling so well. Was pour it up even pour it up even performed on the supwerbowl? Is there even a VIDEO? WOW what kind of winning is this, 8 years into a career of someone who is meant to be wack one hit wonder non talented singer who cannot write her own music. God works in funny way!

    Stay, Diamonds and Pour it – plus the remix are all platinum in the USA? We need to check Love song, that is at least Gold. Well, Rih did the superbowl, Inuaguartion, OPrah, HBO and Pepsi so I can see why she is selling….OH WAIT! that was done by a singer WHO does not even have the GUTS TO CHART. LOL LOL

    That rihanna reign. THIS IS HER BIGGEST ERA. and it is her most easy slay. LIKE SHE HAS NO PROMO OR VIDEO’S . She sells on name! I hear that Jump is the next single for the summer and right now will close the fall winter.

        75 million records?

        LMAO, that ws back in Dec 2008 hun.


      • Likica March 28, 2013

        Oh really? 118 million records? Where, when, how? Beyonce has sold less albums than Rihanna in her solo career, somewhere around 25 million (Rihanna is at 29). We all know that Beyonce doesn’t sell singles as successfully as Rihanna.
        Rihanna has sold over 60+ million singles in the USA alone (without her featuring tracks), ~9.5 million albums (not 8 like you said – 600 000 + 1 350 000+ + 2 700 000 + 1060 000+ + 1 725 000 + 1 085 000 + 860 000 + RtaedR Rexim and GGGB Remix 54 000+ + 13 000+) . In the UK she’s sold 6.8 million albums and over 15 million singles. That alone is 91.3 million records in these two countries. She is the best selling digital artist in Germany with sales of over 4 million records. Good Girl Gone Bad is more successful in Canada than all Beyonce albums combined, it’s 5xPlatinum, Loud is 3xPlatinum, A Girl Like Me 2xPlatinum, Talk That Talk, Rated R and Music Of The Sun all Platinum. Obviously she’s sold more than 100 million records.
        We all know that Beyonce is a kind of local artist and that her singles sell well just in the USA. Look at Single Ladies. 5 million in the USA and something like 2 million outside of it. What an international flop. Rihanna flop singles get certified in some countries, like Man Down which was a huge success in France/Belgium, Te Amo is some European countries.
