Bruno Mars Gets #1 On Billboard Hot 100
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.12.2012

Bruno Mars has hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 as "Locked out of Heaven" climbs 2-1 in its 10th week on the chart. It dethrones Rihanna's "Diamonds", which spent three weeks on top.

This is his fourth Hot 100 #1 since he started in 2010. His first entry was B.o.B.'s "Nothin' On You", which he was a guest on. It was on top for two weeks starting May 1, 2010. His debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans, which hit #3 in its 112 weeks on the BIllboard 200, gave him two more hits: "Just The Way You Are" (four weeks starting on October 2, 2010) and "Grenade" (four weeks starting January 8, 2011). This is a total of four #1s in only two years, ten months and one week.

This means that Mars has had the fastest rise to four #1 songs in 48 years. Bobby Vinton was the last to do it as he first entered the Hot 100 with "Roses are Red (My Love)" on June 9, 1962. Five weeks later, the song hit #1. He followed that up with ""Blue Velvet" (1963), "There! I've Said it Again" and "Mr. Lonely" (both in 1964). When "Lonely" went 2-1 on the chart on December 12, 1964 (48 years ago today), Vinton had four #1s in two years and six months.

Elsewhere, Rihanna's Diamonds falls to #2 due to having a smaller gain (7%) than "Heaven" (21%). It's followed by Ke$ha's "Die Young", The Lumineers' "Ho Hey" and Maroon 5's "One More Night".

In the second half of the top ten, Flo Rida climbs two spots to get #6 with "I Cry", Phillip Phillips stays the same with "Home" at #7 and fun.'s "Some Nights" falls to #8.

The only new entry this week is Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj's "Beauty and a Beat", which is Bieber's fifth top ten and third from his album Believe after "Boyfriend" (#2 in April) and "As Long As You Love Me" (#6 in September). It is Minaj's ninth top ten, which ties her with Missy Elliot among female rappers.

Roundong out the top ten is Ne-Yo's "Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself)". This forces PSY's "Gangnam Style" out of the top ten (to #11), just ahead of Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire", which featured Nicki Minaj, and Will.I.Am's "Scream and Shout", which featured Britney Spears.
