Bruno Mars Lands at No. 2 with ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’

Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars is back on the charts in a big way. After rocketing to No. 1 with his single “Locked Out of Heaven,” the Grammy-winning singer’s sophomore album Unorthodox Jukebox enters at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

The critically-acclaimed set sold 192,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It trumps the sales of his 2010 debut Doo-Wops & Hooligans, which moved 84,000 copies during its best sales week in 2010.

Other new entries this week include The Game, whose fifth album Jesus Piece bows at No. 6 with 86,000. It marks his fifth top 10 album. His last effort, 2011’s The R.E.D. Album, debuted at No. 1 with 98,000.

Led by the single “Mama Told Me” featuring Kelly Rowland, Big Boi’s sophomore solo LP Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors comes in at No. 34 with 30,000. His solo debut Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty entered at No. 3 with 62,000 in July 2010.

Once again, Taylor Swift reigns atop the charts with Red. The country sweetheart’s album holds strong at No. 1 with 208,000.

    @Just Saying…, saying “Game flops again” is like saying his score isn’t good and as if he has “flopped” before. if you mean R.E.D., it honestly didn’t flop… smh An album that sold as much as R.E.D. and got #1 spot or as much as JP sold on it’s first week is far from flop, even if it is little compared to what first week sales used to be years ago. and number 5 on the billboard 200 isn’t even bad. It may be Game’s first not number 1 album, but it sure as hell doesn’t make the album worse. Frankly the album is great and despite it’s “blasphemous” stuff it is a pretty deep album. It may just be milking a controversial subject for money, but if that’s all it is, Game actually did pretty well in pouring himself into it.

    It’s crazy that Bruno’s debut album had its best sales week of 84,000 and still managed to sell almost 2 million. He definitely has longevity on the charts. I haven’t heard his new album in its entirety yet. I bought Big Boi’s album last week instead which is one of the best rap albums of the year!!!

    Actually Bruno’s debut opened with just 55k two years ago, so selling 192k is an amazing improvement, so proud of him, and this taylor girl is the most overrated artist in the past 5 years, damn those little girls who keep buying her shitty album, she can’t even sing and her songs are so bland & boring, she’s so whiny singing about her ex-boyfriends all the time.

    he is so overrated

    @Ello, If anything, he’s underrated. I wasn’t a huge fan of his debut album, but his new one is great in every aspect. He’s a talented singer who was once signed to Motown Records, has written and produced for a wide array of artists, including Cee-Lo’s ‘Forget You’ (which ended up becoming a huge hit, and was critically acclaimed), Brandy, Lloyd, Matisyahu, K’naan, Adam Lambert, Alicia Keys, Melanie Fiona, etc; and is a multi-instrumentalist. He has also received praise from legends like Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, Sting, The Beach Boys, etc. Shame that the younger generation are so ready dismiss true talent without a second thought.
