Mars has accumulated record sales of more than one hundred and thirty million worldwide and also made the Time’s list of the, ‘100 Most Influential People in the World.’
For Bruno Mars, it all started when he dropped his two most commercially successful songs, Just the Way You Are and Grenade in 2010. Both turned out to be number-one hits in multiple countries and were certified nine and seven times platinum in the United States respectively. These two tracks were included in his debut studio record, ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’ which came out in 2010 and earned him five Grammy nominations. After a couple of years, he topped the Billboard 200 for the first time with the release of his sophomore record, ‘Unorthodox Jukebox.’
In 2016, Bruno Mars dropped his latest studio effort, ‘24K Magic.’ It went double platinum in the U.S. and was included in Rolling Stone’s list of the, ‘Best Pop Albums of 2016.’ He later set out on, ‘24K Magic World Tour’ in March of 2017 to support that record. So far, he has performed several gigs throughout Europe, North America, Latin America, Oceania and Asia. Mars is now all set to return to North America and will be playing concerts at different venues including, The Park Theater, the Pepsi Center and the Air Canada Centre. His tour is scheduled to end in November of 2018.

Radioactive served as the second single of their debut studio effort, ‘Night Visions.’ The record showcased their insane talents and featured many hard hitting tracks including, It’s Time, Demons and On Top of the World. It also won them a Billboard Music Award for, ‘Top Rock Album.’ The guys followed that up by putting out their chart-topping record, ‘Smoke + Mirrors’ which sold more than a million copies in the U.S.
