Bruno Mars stops “Diamonds” reign on “Billboard Hot 100”

Bruno Mars bounds to the top of the “Billboard Hot 100”, as “Locked Out of Heaven” rises 2-1 in its 10th week on the chart. The song displaces Rihanna’s “Diamonds” after three weeks on top. “Heaven” claims a fairly narrow victory over “Diamonds” on the “Hot 100”, pushing the latter song to number 2 by less than 2,000 chart points. Both songs gain from last week, but “Heaven” increases by 21% and “Diamonds,” 7%, enough to spur a change at the chart’s summit. “Diamonds,” atop “R&B/Hip-Hop Songs” for a 10th week, leads Radio Songs for a second week (134 million, down 1%) and “On-Demand Songs” for a fifth frame (1.2 million, up 15%). It rebounds 8-2 on “Digital Songs” (143,000, up 17%) after leading the list the week of december 1.
