His hits are more famous than he is, but that could soon change for singer/songwriter Bruno Mars.
Fronting the Super Bowl Halftime Show can give album sales a mayjah boost, and that’s certainly been the case for Bruno. Just days after the “Treasure” singer’s high-octane Super Bowl performance, sales of his music have exploded all over iTunes.
Bruno’s last release, Unorthodox Jukebox, hit No. 1 on the iTunes album charts Monday. His debut album, Doo-Wops and Hooligans, was catapulted to No. 3. Other versions of the albums are ranked at No. 8 and No. 17, respectively.
That’s only the beginning: Fourteen different versions of 12 Bruno Mars’ songs are now charting on iTunes Top Songs; “Locked Out of Heaven” is No. 6, “Just The Way You Are” at No. 7, “Treasure” at No. 13, “Young Girls” is ranked in 16th place and “When I Was Your Man” sits at No. 19.
There’s even talk of an increase in demand for and price of ticket sales.
