It wouldn’t be the first time he’s rocked it, but today has seen Bruno Mars place the iTunes crown firmly on his head thanks to his new single ‘When I Was Your Man’.
Want to know how?
His not so secret chart weapon below…
In following a trend that many will agree is growing a little tiresome, Mars had the single discounted to 69 cents- resulting in its meteoric rise to the top.
Frustrating, considering the lengths this ‘habit’ has gone in overshadowing the full priced sales of his new album ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ which has now sold 1,142,000 units no more than five months after its debut.
In the last week, ‘Man’ sold an impressive 235,000 units pushing its combined US sales to 2,196,000- a figure that while is impressive, owes a great deal to this discount that should see him secure a Top 5 spot when the Hot 100 chart is updated in the next few hours.
So let us know…
What do you make of discounted releases?
