Bruno Mars Makes "Billboard" Chart History with "When I Was Your Man"

In his relatively brief career, Bruno Mars has set many a chart record, and now he's got another one under his belt.  Thanks to his latest hit, "When I Was Your Man," the singer has just notched his sixth #1 single on Billboard's Pop Songs chart.  That's more than any other solo male artist in the 20-year history of that chart.

The previous record was five number ones, shared by Justin Timberlake and rapper Nelly .  Bruno now tops both of them.  However, he's got a ways to go to beat the all-time record holders: Katy Perry and Rihanna both have nine #1 hits on that chart.

Among Bruno's #1 hits: "Grenade," "Just the Way You Are," "It Will Rain" and "Locked Out of Heaven."   Not bad for a guy who first appeared on the Billboard Pop Songs chart just three years ago.
