Chart Check: Bruno Mars’ ‘That’s What I Like’ Claims No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100, Becomes His Seventh No. 1 on Billboard

Posted May 2, 2017

In what should come as no surprise to anyone, Bruno Mars has added a new no. 1 record to his resume, his seventh of his career via the infectious and summer ready jam ‘That’s What I Like.’

via Billboard:

Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like” climbs from No. 3 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated May 13), becoming the pop/R&B superstar’s seventh Hot 100 No. 1.

“Like,” released on Atlantic Records, becomes the 1,063rd No. 1 in the Hot 100’s history (which dates to Aug. 4, 1958). It’s Mars’ first leader since he ruled for 14 weeks as featured on Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk!” in 2015 and his first as a lead artist since “When I Was Your Man” topped the April 20, 2013-dated Hot 100.

With Mars having tallied his first No. 1 as an artist on May 1, 2010 (exactly seven years ago today), as the featured artist on B.o.B’s “Nothin’ On You,” he moves closer to the mark for the most No. 1s this decade: His seven are the most among male artists in the 2010s and, overall, trail only Rihanna’s nine and Katy Perry’s eight this decade. (Mars boasts more than twice as many Hot 100 No. 1s in the ’10s than any other male; he extends his lead over Bieber, Drake, Eminem and The Weeknd, each with three in that span.)

In the Hot 100’s history, Mars ties for seventh place among solo males with the most No. 1s, matching the seven leaders each for Phil Collins, Frankie Valli and Elvis Presley (whose career predated the Hot 100 by two years). Michael Jackson leads all male soloists with 13 No. 1s (while The Beatles pace all acts with 20).

Congrats and well deserved Bruno!
