Congratulations to Andrew Wyatt and Bruno Mars! “When I Was Your Man” performed by Mars and co-written by Wyatt, has reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This is Mars’ fifth chart-topper on the Billboard Hot 100. Not since Elvis Presley has a male solo artist accrued five Hot 100 No. 1s in so short a time, 3 years 2 months and 1 week, in comparison to Presley’s 2 years 7 months and 3 weeks. Andrew Wyatt also co-wrote Mars’ third No.1, “Grenade”.
This marks only the second song in Billboard chart history to top the Hot 100 with just piano and vocals (the first being Adele’s Someone Like You)
