Bruno Mars has sold 10 million albums and 58 million singles worldwide as a singer. He has sold over 115 million records worldwide and has a catalog of 22 “Hot 100” hits as a singer, producer and songwriter. ”Just the Way You Are” is currently holding the record of the longest-reigning debut format hit in the chart’s 50-year history, being able to spend 20 weeks atop Adult Contemporary. That debut single along with “Grenade” are two of the most sold singles digitally of all time leading to him being the best-selling digital artist in 2011. When ”Treasure” entered the top 10 on Radio Songs, he extended his perfect top 10 streak on Radio Songs, as all 11 of his entries have now reached the top ten. He has spawned five number one singles in the US in his time, the only other male who reached five leaders more quickly than himself was Elvis Presley.

“It’s what I am. I went into the studio and everyday was something different. I wanted to do something different and I just feel like I am all over the place. You know, I listen to all different styles of music and that’s where I get my joy from is being a producer and being able to work with an R&B singer, being able to work with a rock band, work with a hip-hop artist so when it comes time for me, to do my album, I’m so scattered that it all kinda comes into my music, it all trickles down into my music which makes it this kind of unorthodox style. And I’m hoping that my voice is the glue that brings it all together.” — Bruno Mars
