Bruno Mars is one in three million…
The 31-year-old part-Puerto Rican singer has scored his third million-selling album, as 24K Magic motored past the million sales mark on the Billboard 200 chart for the week ending July 20, according to Nielsen Music.
The set, which was released last November, sold another 11,000 copies in the latest tracking frame, bringing its to-date sales sum to 1.008 million.
24K Magic follows Mars’ two earlier full-length studio efforts: his 2013 sophomore set, Unorthodox Jukebox (2.57 million sold), and his 2010 debut, Doo-Wops & Hooligans (2.63 million).
Earlier in 2010, Mars issued the introductory digital EP It’s Better If You Don’t Understand, which has sold 27,000.
24K Magic reached 1 million sold after 34 weeks, while Unorthodox took 13 and Doo-Wops did it in 32 frames.
The new album continues to find success with its singles, as “Versace on the Floor” climbs 57-47 on the Billboard Hot 100 dated Aug. 5. It if hits the top 40, it will give Mars his third top 40 hit from 24K Magic and his 18th overall.
He previously claimed a pair of top 40 hits from the album with its eponymous lead single (peaking at No. 4) and “That’s What I Like” (No. 1).
