Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ At #1 On Album Chart, Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” Tops Hot 100
Taylor Swift sold another 244,000 copies of her juggernaut 1989 last week, enabling her to stick around at the top of the Billboard 200 for an eighth non-consecutive week. Over on the Hot 100 singles chart, however, Swift’s reign with “Blank Space” has come to an end (for the time being at least) after seven weeks. Taking its place is Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars‘ latest collaboration, “Uptown Funk,” which also hit the top in Ronson’s home country of the UK recently.
This gives Ronson his first #1 single as a lead artist in the States, though he previously visited the Hot 100 throne as a producer on Mars’ 2012 single “Locked Out Of Heaven.” As for Bruno, “Uptown Funk” marks his sixth #1. His very first chart topper came nearly five years ago, with B.o.B collaboration “Nothin’ On You.”
