The holiday season is generally known for several things: breaking our diets, spending time with annoying relatives and gift-giving. As a result of the last of those activities, music sales surge, and the moves on US charts by Bruno Mars, T.I. and Mariah Carey prove it.
Last week, early sales predictions indicated that Bruno Mars’ new album, ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’, would have entered the US charts with 140-150K copies sold. However, as a result of his massive promotional campaign, the singer has exceeded all expectations with an even more impressive debut.
Women dominated the bill for the finale of ‘The Voice’ this evening yet a few men managed to sneak through the gates. Among those acts was Bruno Mars, who used the opportunity to debut his latest single, ‘When I Was Your Man’, on television.
The tributes to the victims of the Newtown shootings keep pouring in. The latest celebrity to add his voice to the mix was Bruno Mars, who opened today’s episode of ‘The Ellen Degeneres Show’ with a live performance of his upbeat anthem ‘Count on Me’.
This season of ‘The X Factor (US)’ has been quite lacklustre so it was such a relief to see an artist with actual talent appear on the show. Bruno Mars hit the stage to perform his monster hit single, ‘Locked Out of Heaven’, for the normally bored crowd.
Bruno Mars put in the time and effort, and now he is about the reap the rewards. Sales predictions suggest that his new album, ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’, will debut in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 and sell three times what his ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’ did in its opening frame.
Bruno Mars is back in the US and he wants everyone to know it! Earlier today, the incredibly versatile artist appeared on ‘The Today Show’ where her performed a mini concert, during which he and his band harmonised a comical rendition of ‘White Christmas’ and more.
Bruno Mars has been almost inescapable during the last week. Shortly after his appearance on ‘The Graham Norton Show’ last week, the busy singer-songwriter made a stop at the 2012 Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball as part of his ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ album campaign.
