The Billboard Beats: Bruno Mars’ ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ Takes No. 1

Rihanna‘s “Diamonds” aren’t shining as brightly this week. After two weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, Rihanna’s single got bumped down to No. 2 as Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven” moved into the top spot on Thursday.

Mars is no stranger to first place, as “Locked Out of Heaven” — which has been charting for 10 weeks now — is his fourth song to top the chart since releasing his first album in 2010. Last year, Mars’ “Grenade” battled Katy Perry’s “Firework” for the top slot; the two alternated between No. 1 and No. 2 for four straight weeks. Could Mars be facing a similar showdown again, this time with Rihanna?
