Bruno Mars Takes Doo Wops & Hooligans to the Top

CHART SPOTLIGHT. It might not have come as a surprise. Bruno Mars already topped the UK singles tally with “Just the Way You Are (Amazing)” and retains the No.1 spot for a second week running with “Grenade.” WelcheMusic finds him hotter than an oven, and this week Doo Wops & Hooligans crashes in at No.1 on the album chart as well. Bruno Mars has already conquered The Netherlands and Ireland with this album. He is still to reach the very top in the US besting the No.3 peak.


One of Japan’s most important radio station has already picked up the Coldplay-flavoured track “Marry You.” According to Music Week, Bruno Mars became the most successful songwriter in the UK last year as part of the songwriting team The Smeezingtons. The production trio not only wrote and produced Mars’s “Just the Way You Are (Amazing),” they’re also responsible for Cee-Lo Green’s “Forget You.” Mars and his songwriting collective scored three UK No 1’s last year beginning with “Nothin’ on You” by B.o.B featuring Mars, followed by “Just the Way You Are (Amazing)” and “Forget You.” Additional hits also include “Billionaire” by Travie McCoy and K’naan’s World Cup Song “Wavin’ Flag.”
