Billboard has just released breaking news that Bruno Mars' new hit, "Locked Out of Heaven", has achieved another milestone in the charts this week. It is now the first single in the history of Billboard to rule the Hot 100, Radio Songs, Digital Songs and On-Demand Songs charts all at the same time.

Other artists have had similar success with their chart-topping hits, but not in all the categories where "Locked Out of Heaven" is now reigning simultaneously, as the On-Demand charts was established only in March of this year. Rihanna's "We Found Love" was concurrently at no. 1 in the Hot 100, Radio Songs and Digital Songs back in December 2011, as did Adele's "Rolling in the Deep", Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger", and Katy Perry's "E.T." last year.

This newest addition to Mars' list of achievements for "Locked Out of Heaven" follows the feat set in August 2010 by Eminem. His "Love the Way you Lie" collaboration with Rihanna became the first track by a solo male artist to lead the Hot 100, Radio Songs and Digital Songs charts, simultaneously.

"Locked Out of Heaven" brought the Grammy-winning Mars to the top of the charts, earning the Hawaiian singer-songwriter his fifth no. 1 pop hit and tying him with Justin Timberlake and Nelly for Male Artist with the most no. 1 hits on Billboard Hot 100. It is the carrier single of his second album "Unorthodox Jukebox" which climbed to no. 2 when it debuted on the Billboard 200 charts last week.
