Chart Check: Bruno Mars Continues To Sizzle & Soar On The Billboard Hot 100 / Chris Brown’s ‘Ayo’ Impacts iTunes UK

Published: Thursday 19th Feb 2015 by David

Drake isn’t the only Pop prince rocking and ruling the charts this week.

For, should one pay the Billboard Hot 100 a visit, they’d find Bruno Mars at #1 with the single ‘Uptown Funk’, placed in the enviable spot for a total of seven weeks!

His chart reign continues as Rihanna’s ‘FourFiveSeconds’ finds itself placed at #4, and as Chris Brown & Tyga‘s joint jam ‘Ayo‘ impacts iTunes UK‘s Top Ten by claiming the #9 spot for itself.

The cut’s charting in the market will come as a welcome surprise for Brown fans as past legal troubles have seen him unable to promote music in the country physically.

However, it seems his absence has made the hearts of British fans grow fonder as his success with this single comes after 2013’s ‘Loyal’ was certified Gold in the market for sales of over 400,000 units.

More good news below…

In at #32 on iTunes UK is Drake’s ‘Preach’, while Rita Ora & Charli XCX‘s ‘Doing It’ finds a friend in #8, reaching the position before Ora announces a release date for her US debut album.

    I love Bruno Mars but honestly lol There are other better songs of number 1 quality…

    • britneyraycarey February 19, 2015

      please. that song is deserving of number 1. Dont tell me you enjoyed seeing Iggy, Meghan Trainor, and Taylor Swift being number 1 all of 2014… you have a faggott mentality

      • Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! February 19, 2015

        Bruno looks so gay in the video… So don’t be dissing taylor

      • britneyraycarey February 19, 2015

        Taylor looks like a t***** all the time.. so I guess they’re equal

      • Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! February 19, 2015

        And yet, she’s the biggest selling artist over the past 4 months I’m the world!!

        Don’t get mad. Thanks.

      • Rihyonce February 19, 2015

        @britneyraycarey lmaoo your not even worth it !! Your demented and you clearly need attention… !

      • britneyraycarey February 19, 2015

        i dont care bitchh

      • Rihyonce February 19, 2015


      • Selenator February 19, 2015

        Lol not a Mildred stan coming for Taylor’s body. Mildred is flatter then Taylor. Tay at least knows her body and doesn’t try to twerk her nonexistent booty.

    • Rihboy February 19, 2015

      I totally agree. It’s so cliche, safe, and borrowed. Of course it will be a hit. Not saying it’s any less deserved, however it’s not innovative as Grenade or locked out

  2. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! February 19, 2015

    Style is climbing at 10!!

    • Slay_Hive February 19, 2015

      UH-OH!!!!! Trouble 😀

    • RihHive February 19, 2015

      Style is radio friendly and will stream but no one is buying the single for it to get to #1… possibly because the album sold so well so not dissing it. This is my favorite T-Swift era. Blank Space is the soundtrack to my college life. Much more relatable than Style.
      P.S. thanks for making a relevant post as opposed to ur random plugs… it was getting rather annoying.

      • Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! February 20, 2015

        Yup. It might not get to number one, because so many people have it already on the album, but we shall see. I at least think it will make top 5.

        Hahaha it’s just a single comment here and there though! Many others bring up other artists on non relevant posts:P

  3. britneyraycarey February 19, 2015

    I want to see Tinashe, Britney, Bruno, Drake, Rihanna, Miley, and Ciara slay the charts in 2015!

    • Rihyonce February 19, 2015

      Rihanna and Drake yasss !!
      but Britney and Miley… LMFAOOO WHOSE THE ONE WITH THE F***** MENTALITY !! lmaooooo what an idiot ki ki

      • Rihyonce February 19, 2015

        And the NERVE CIARA !! LMAOOOOO

    • Selenator February 19, 2015

      Lol Mildred isn’t going to slay anything this year. Except maybe p0rn.

      • britneyraycarey February 19, 2015

        says the Selena gomez fan who has yet had a hit as major as Miley’s hits.. all of selena hits are only hits withing the Disney world. What a flop. Stop being jealous of miley!

  4. Sandra February 19, 2015

    Uptown Funk is so annoying now. Why is it still #1? It was good the first few listens but after that No!!

  5. Sandra February 19, 2015

    You should add to this post that Madonna’s lead single Living For Love debuted at #8 on the Bubbling Under chart. It failed to enter the Hot 100

  6. martin miller February 19, 2015

    UP-town FUNK YOU UP, UP-town FUNK YOU UP!!! 😛

  7. CherylSoldierr February 19, 2015

      • CherylSoldierr February 19, 2015


  8. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2015

    I’ve always loved Bruno. Another example of someone who can slay both albums and singles. + he didn’t need a gimmick release to sell only to stall in a few weeks. Slay!

    • BossB*tchBeyoncé February 19, 2015

      Your so tired. Bye!!

    • Slay_Hive February 19, 2015

      Did Me. I am an obsese nocalist even stall at 100k? kii STAWP! The Queen keeps you bothered

  9. Overdose February 19, 2015

    Still not Rihanna? Navy said 45 seconds was going to #1 after the Grammys.

    • Mark111 February 19, 2015

      Did Overdose even chart? Is iEBT even on the chart? #BubblingUnderQueen

    • Rihyonce February 19, 2015

  10. Mark111 February 19, 2015

    Hahahahahaha, you delete my comment about your poor writing instead of editing that second paragraph? What a joke. lol

  11. Slay_Hive February 19, 2015

    I thought FourFiveSeconds from irrelevancy was going #1 after the grammys? what happened? kii Bruno and Taylor ain’t gone take they foot off the b****’s neck! 😀 😀

    • Mark111 February 19, 2015

      I thought Beyonce was going to take home Album Of he Year? lol Drunken W**** was stopped by Katy Perry’s Dark Horse. Let that sink in. lol

      • KeKe February 19, 2015

        Not to forget best urban contemporary album which was won by Pharrell

      • Slay_Hive February 19, 2015

        I know you thought she was taking home AOTY! Wasn’t your bipolar ass saying she deserved it before the grammys aired? 😀
        DIL could have easily topped the charts if she was doing as much promoting and twitter linking that Katy and Rihanna have to do. She payed it. Oh well. Still got that Double Platiinum plaque. 😉

  12. Stephy. February 19, 2015

    COME ON BRUNO!!!! I swear, I love this guy. He’s about to become one of my fav’s tbh… One more SLAYAGE record & I’m adding his ol’ Philippines ass to my “Stan For” list. SLAY BOY!

    • FutureCiara February 19, 2015

      Bittch, immaneefahu to back up off of Slayno!

  13. KeKe February 19, 2015

    Some of you clowns are forgetting that this is not Bruno’s song

    • Stephy. February 19, 2015

      It’s a duet. Kinda like Calvin Harries & Rihanna with “We Found Love In A Hopeless Place”

  14. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2015

    One would think that Bottom_Hive would be somewhere recovering after ElusiveLamb dragged her ho asss a few hours ago. I didn’t even mention your tired fave’s name and you’re seething in my reply section as usual.

    Sidenote: that “nocalist” made your fave want to be a singer though.

    • KeKe February 19, 2015

      Oh? Which post? Im still screaming at how she dragged cuntler a few days ago

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2015

        The previous “Chart Check” post! Lmao she G-A-T-H-E-R-E-D that peasant! I was struggling to stay in my seat. Never knew he could read like that lmao

      • Slay_Hive February 19, 2015

        of course you would say she gathered me. Why couldn’t you do it though? I bruised your ego! kii Sit the f*** down pressed b****!

      • Tyler February 19, 2015

        I didnt say any rude s*** to you, I didnt talk about ur mama, I didnt say anything about those gap ass teeth or that boxy ass body. So whats ur issue?

    • Slay_Hive February 19, 2015

      Lol that pressed b**** didn’t drag a damn thing. It’s a shame she had to stick up for you after I scalped your head to the point of bleeding!
      You don’t have to mention my fave b****. I catch everything. Besides, Bey has you more pressed than a car’s backseat full of fat b******.
      Since she inspired Bey to want to sing. It’s time for Bey to inspire her to get ha s*** together! 😀

  15. FutureCiara February 19, 2015

    New @Ciara Interview Confirms “I Bet” Music Video Was Shot 2/13. Full Interview Here:

    @HANNAHLUXDAVIS Directed @Ciara “I Bet” Music Video! Recent Work Includes “Love Me Harder”, “Only”, & “Bang Bang”!

    “I Shot The Video For My 1st Single ” I Bet” I Did Things I Always Wanted To Do, Style-wise And Performance Wise I Had A Vision” -@Ciara

    • Mark111 February 19, 2015

      It’s just going to be a boring video of her crying over rappers playing her. Just like Never Ever and Sorry. I’ll pass.

      • FutureCiara February 19, 2015

        Better than a video about being an underaged prostitute bride…. Featuring the actual p******** in the video….(Age Aint Nothing But A R***-Case!)

      • FutureCiara February 19, 2015

        Hunny continue clinging to the same drag each time we meet….. Its very old and stale now.. Their relationship has been dead… Just like your fave, you hold on too long to things… Just grieve and get over it.

  16. FutureCiara February 19, 2015

    Bruno is BAE!!!!!


  17. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 19, 2015

    Scalped who? Lmao after I left that comment I went to bed. You weren’t, still aren’t, and never will be relevant enough for me to stay up with that late going back and forth knowing I have classes in the morning. Btw, congrats to your other personaiity @Tyler for being top commentator of the week. truly an impressive feat. *applauds*

  18. Slay_Hive February 19, 2015

    Scalped you b****! I see you had time to make it back to the post to check the replies but you didn’t leave one though! You knew better h**! You don’t have too many strands of her left to even bother!
    Me and Tyler are two completely different people, but I understand your struggle to come for me. That “other personality” “trolling” stale reads are so lame, especially when you don’t have one receipt to back it up!

    *applauds you for being one of the dumbest self-readers on this blog*

  19. KeKe February 19, 2015

    “Are we really going to talk about aging divas when the real unPhotoshopped pics of B show she has more wrinkle lines than memorable hits and lawsuits combined?”

      B**** you are so pressed! Post the entire conversation! Clinging to someone else’s nut sack. Pathetic ass b****!

      You’ll be the only b**** listening to that forgotten diamond album! *Plays Bow Down* 😉

    • Tyler February 19, 2015

      You know what? I normally respect my elders…but since you tried me, Ima try your old ass back!

      B****, do you need to be knocked in the muthafuckin mouth and dragged thru the f***** ice cream aisle?
      You and your side kick KeKe obviously have a muthafuckin problem so whats good?

  22. Krista February 19, 2015

    I like Uptown Funk but Thinking Out Loud deserves to be on top now. As long as its not that boring basic Rihanna song.

  23. Tyler February 19, 2015

    I know Gertrude…oops I mean, Slayriahs old ass isnt trying to call somebody out when she was exposed for being a TROLL.



    OKAYYY!!!! LOOK!
    This is the REAL ORIGINAL SLAYRIAH! This site is f****** up or something because I haven’t been on TGJ in days. I just got home from school so I don’t know how I could be typing comments while writing a test. You desperate h*** can believe whatever you want but TGJ messed up or someone decided to troll with my name. That same blue-Ivy person has shaded Mariah before so let’s not. Half of the people on here calling me a troll are in no position because your broke asses sit on here all day doing nothing while I’m going to school getting my marks, so I could go to university and have a successful career. I don’t care what you people think because your opinions aren’t gold not do you affect my life. If you want troll with please STOP using my username because I’ve seen comments on here with my username before but this is the first time I’ve seen one with the username and gravatar.
    All of the previous comments left under the username “SLAYRIAH” are FAKE because this so the first time I’m checking into this site today

    • Lolz February 19, 2015


    • Slay_Hive February 19, 2015

      OKAY!!!! The desperation for approval. Like, B**** you’re taking medical assistant courses online! On here pretending like she is studying for a law degree at Harvard. B**** sit the f*** down with them stale reads!

      • Tyler February 19, 2015

        Lol thank you! I dont care how many grandkids Slayriah has….I will RUN her old ass.

      • Slay_Hive February 19, 2015

        Lmaooo It has to be at least 50 years old. I refuse to believe someone who claims to be a “teenager” in 2015 would even know what a Mariah is! kii The thot is a liar and a phony wack pressed b****!

    • Mark111 February 19, 2015

      lol, that was SO long ago. You pest need a hoppy instead of saving TGJ archives. smh, lol.

      • Tyler February 19, 2015

        Mind ur OWN BUSINESS B****!

      • Mark111 February 19, 2015

        I’ll do that when you roaches get a hobby. Or better yet a life. lol

      • Tyler February 19, 2015

        You’re over here counting how many Baby Mama’s Future has but I need to get a life? lolol Mkay.

      • Mark111 February 19, 2015

        4 bMs vs hundreds of post on this site, going back months ago just to paste their comment. Tell me, nevermind. You’re just 19, go to bed child.

      • Slay_Hive February 19, 2015

        Why don’t you get a hobby b****! You’ve topped that top commentator’s list just as much as LB. STFU!

      • Tyler February 19, 2015

        I didnt come at you disrespectfully. So scurry along and go find more links about Future’s Singles Mothers Club to post about before you run your blood pressure up. You, Slayriah, Gertrude, Maple, and Agnus are way to old to be stalking MY LIFE.

      • Tyler February 19, 2015

        I know your old ass has scoliosis, so let me stoop down to your f****** level real quick Slayriah/Blue Rodriguez/Mark111. I dont care if u were born when Dinosaurs were roaming the earth, I dont care how many medicines you take, or how many times you take your ass to Dialisis YOU WILL NOT BE DISRESPECT TODAY…TO THIS B****.

  24. Tyler February 19, 2015

    Where’s Blue Rodriguez at?

  25. Lolz February 19, 2015

    When you copy and paste reads because you know you could never lol

  26. Rosie February 19, 2015

    Uptown Funk is a huge grower; I hated it when it first came out but the more I hear it, the more I really think it deserves #1. Too bad that s***** Ellie Goulding mess is coming to replace it. A shame because Ellie’s music before the Halycon rerelease was great.

    • CherylSoldierr February 19, 2015

      The Ellie song is cute! She’s obviously going for mainstream chart success now tho.

  27. Selenator February 19, 2015

    TGJ needs to get behind new Dutch artist Natalie La Rose. She sings Urban Pop music and her debut single Somebody feat. Jeremiah (which samples Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance with Somebody) just climbed 22 spots to #37. If you like Tinashe, you’ll love Natalie

  28. TheElusiveLamb February 19, 2015

    ^^ LMAOOOOO!

    Back to the subject, good for you Bruno. I love him.
