Bruno Mars is No. 1 again! It’s getting to be old-hat, or old-fedora, in his case. The crooner notched his fifth No. 1 hit with the heartfelt ballad ‘When I Was Your Man’ — you know, the one that he got all emotional performing on ‘Ellen.’

The song, which appears on ‘Unorthodox Jukebox,’ has ascended to the top slot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The album’s first single, the infectious, Police-inspired ‘Locked Out of Heaven,’ was No. 1 for six consecutive weeks earlier this year. Mars has grabbed his Numero Unos at the fastest pace since Elvis, so say the bean counters and statisticians at Billboard!

Want another awesome Bruno Mars stat? The song, an affecting, lays-its-cards-face-up-on-the-table track, is his sixth No. 1 single on the Billboard Mainstream Top 40 radio airplay chart, making him the solo male artist with the most chart-toppers in its 20-year history. He’s got more than Justin Timberlake, yo!

Finally, ‘When I Was Your Man’ is his 11th song to notch 1 million downloads.

Maybe Tyler, the Creator (aka Bruno Hater) will finally be a fan. His name is Bruno Mars and he is a hit maker!

The singer will also be opening the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, which take place Sunday, May 19 at 8PM ET on ABC. Be sure and tune in.
