    NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - 01/18/11) - Elektra recording artist Bruno Mars is currently sitting on top of the world with his blockbuster new single, "Grenade." The track -- featured on Mars' breakthrough debut album, "DOO-WOPS & HOOLIGANS" -- has just returned to #1 on Billboard's "Hot 100" while simultaneously topping the singles charts in both Canada and the United Kingdom. This marks the second Mars single to accomplish the international feat, following the Grammy Award-nominated "Just The Way You Are" which topped all three countries' charts concurrently back in October. As if all that weren't enough, "Grenade" is also currently iTunes' #1 song in both Germany and Ireland.

    Here in the US, the #1 success of both "Grenade" and "Just The Way You Are" establishes Mars as only the sixth-ever solo male artist in history to reach the top of the charts with his first two singles and the first to do so in 13 years. What's more, "Grenade" recently made history with the third biggest sales week of any US single ever (with sales of more than 559,000), and has been certified 2x platinum by the RIAA for total sales exceeding 2 million.

    Moreover, the 3x RIAA platinum certified "Just The Way You Are" remains a top 10 favorite on Billboard's "Hot 100," just as "DOO-WOPS & HOOLIGANS" has received gold certification by the RIAA for sales exceeding 500,000. The album is currently ascending back up the Billboard 200 album chart, surging to the #3 position (where it initially debuted upon its October 2010 release).

    As with its smash singles, "DOO-WOPS & HOOLIGANS" has also proven an international triumph. In addition to earning platinum certification in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, the album is an out-of-the-box gold certified sensation in the UK with 100,000 units shipped. "DOO-WOPS & HOOLIGANS" is also currently #1 in Germany, as well as #1 on the iTunes charts in Germany, Belgium, Holland, Ireland, and Austria.

    Meanwhile, both "Grenade" and "Just The Way You Are" are dominating multi-format radio outlets across America. The former is poised to hit #1 at CHR/Pop and is a top 5 success at Rhythmic, while the latter has also reached top 5 at Rhythmic, #1 at Hot AC, AC and CHR/Pop. In addition, the companion video for "Grenade" is currently in heavy rotation across all MTV platforms, as well as VH1, Fuse and TeenNick. The clip -- directed by Nabil (Kanye West, John Legend, Black Eyed Peas) -- has also received over 40 million views via Elektra Records' official YouTube channel, located at

    With seven total nominations, Mars is the second most-nominated artist for the upcoming 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, paying tribute to his diverse talents as performer, songwriter, and producer. Mars got two nominations in the "Record of the Year" category, for both his featured role on Rebel Rock Entertainment/Grand Hustle/Atlantic recording artist B.o.B's #1 hit, "Nothin' On You (Feat. Bruno Mars)," as well for his production (with The Smeezingtons) on fellow Elektra recording artist Cee Lo Green's "F**k You." Both tracks also earned Mars nods for his work as a songwriter, with "F**k You" named in the "Song of the Year" category and "Nothin' On You" listed among the "Best Rap Song" nominees. Mars received a "Best Male Pop Vocal Performance" nomination for "Just The Way You Are," as well as a "Best Rap/Sung Collaboration" nod for "Nothin' On You." Mars -- with his Smeezingtons partners, Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine -- is also in the running for the "Producer of the Year, Non-Classical" award. The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards will be held on Sunday, February 13th at Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live on CBS from 8-11:30 pm (ET/PT).

    In addition, Mars is nominated for a 2011 BRIT Award as "Best International Male" and has just received a pair of nominations for the upcoming 42nd NAACP Image Awards. He was named in the "Best New Artist" category, while Cee Lo Green's Smeezingtons-penned and produced "Forget You" was nominated for "Outstanding Song." The 42nd NAACP Image Awards will be presented during a live telecast airing on Friday, March 4th on FOX at 8PM ET.

    Released in October, "DOO-WOPS & HOOLIGANS" was greeted with both popular success and critical acclaim. "The year's finest pop debut," raved Rolling Stone. "Near-flawless... (the album) delivers pleasure without pretension." The album further established 2010 as Mars' own, which in addition to "Just The Way You Are," "Nothin' On You" and "F**k You," also included Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen recording artist Travie McCoy's top 5 fave, "Billionaire (Feat. Bruno Mars)."

    A charming and charismatic live performer, Mars has spent much of the past few months on the road. His first-ever North American headline tour -- dubbed "The Doo-Wops & Hooligans Tour" -- proved a sold-out sensation last November and December, followed by appearances at a slate of holiday-themed "Jingle Ball" radio concerts.

    Mars also made a series of high-profile TV appearances, including CBS' Late Show with David Letterman, NBC's TODAY and Saturday Night Live, Fuse TV's A Different Spin with Mark Hoppus, and the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show. He was among the stars performing at the Grammy Nominations Live concert, as well as both the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards and the 2010 Soul Train Awards (where he and B.o.B received "Song of the Year" honors for "Nothin' On You"). Furthermore, two songs from "DOO-WOPS & HOOLIGANS" were featured on a highly rated episode of Fox's hit series, Glee, including "Marry You" and "Just The Way You Are."

    Bruno Mars has been named as the best songwriter of 2010, according to industry publication Music Week. 'Smeezingtons’ Songwriting', a team made up of the Bruno Mars (real name Peter Hernandez), Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine came top in the chart compiled by the magazine.

    The team were behind a string of top-selling singles last year including ‘Just The Way You Are (Amazing)’, Cee Lo Green’s ‘F**k You’, B.o.B’s ‘Nothin’ On You’ (which featured Mars), Travie McCoy’s ‘Billionaire’ and the World Cup anthem ‘Wavin’ Flag’ (Sung by Mars and K’naan).

    EMI-signed Norwegian songwriting duo Stargate placed second on the list after writing for the likes of Katy Perry, Rihanna and Alexis Jordan. They were followed by (last year’s winner), who spent the year writing songs for artists including Usher and his own group Black Eyed Peas.

    Simon Neil, frontman of Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro was the highest-placing Brit on the group, helped largely by the success of ‘Many of Horror’, renamed ‘When We Collide’ when it was released by X Factor winner Matt Cardle and earned the Christmas Number One. Also placing in the top ten were British rapper Tinie Tempah and rising star Labrinth.

    GOD BLESS MY CLASSMATE'S FATHER and HIS CO-WORKERS WHO WORKS AT THE AIRPORT. We got to meet Bruno Mars! He and his band flew by a public plane (surprising), and all people except the workers have no idea that he is coming! Omg I was so happy. I screamed at him if I could get a picture but then his bodyguard bumped at me. BTW we were waiting in the departure area; yes her father and his co-workers made ways for it to happen.
