Artist of the Week: Bruno Mars


The 32-year-old singer-songwriter kicks off the new year with many achievements, including having his 2016 album '24K Magic' back to the top of Billboard 200 chart.
Bruno Mars is a living proof of a successful musician. The singer already scored many feats in the previous year, but it seems like he will add more this year. Not only he opened the new year with his 2016 album "24K Magic" back to the top 10 of Billboard 200 chart, but he was also dubbed the biggest winner at the 2018 NAACP Image Music Awards in music categories.

"24K Magic" was able to climb back to the top 10 after he released the remix version of his track "Finesse" featuring Cardi B. The track received so much love from fans that it debuted at No. 35 on Billboard Hot 100, marking it the highest debut at that week's Hot 100. The music video was directed by Bruno himself. He dedicated it to one of his favorite TV shows of all time, "In Living Color".

Both Bruno and Cardi are scheduled to take the stage together at the upcoming 2018 Grammy Awards, performing a medley of their hit songs. Also at the award, Bruno is one of the top nominees, earning six nominations including Album of the Year and Best R&B Album for "24K Magic". He is also one of the top nominees at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards, dominating the pack with five nominations.

His achievement didn't end there. Bruno, who is currently hitting the road in support of the said album, has hit yet another major career milestone. His world tour has reached an overall gross of $200 million, leading to him taking the top spot of Billboard's top-grossing Hot Tours list.

He kicked off his 115-date tour in Belgium on March 28, 2017. This year, the singer will embark on an Asian leg of the tour before officially wrapping it up on July 24 at the British Summer Time Festival at London's Hyde Park in London, England.
