Bruno Mars continues to set himself apart from the music men…
The 26-year-old part-Puerto Rican singer has notched his eighth top five Billboard Hot 100 hit, as “Locked Out of Heaven” rose to the No. 4 spot on this week’s chart.
But the real feather in Mars’ fedora comes from his position on Billboard’s Radio Songs chart, where the single climbs to No. 7, netting 88 million spins (up 18% from the previous week).
By entering the top 10, “Locked Out of Heaven” becomes Mars’ ninth consecutive career-opening top 10, extending his record among men.
Mariah Carey boasts the longest career-starting streak of top 10s in the radio ranking’s 22-year history, having banked 12 in a row from 1990-94.
“Locked Out of Heaven” is Mars’ first single off his sophomore album Unorthodox Jukebox, which comes out on December 11.
