Congrats are in order for crooner Bruno Mars. The singer has earned the coveted and esteemed honor of being the most played artist at pop radio for 2013.

The stats come from Mediabase, a service which tracks and monitors radio airplay. 'Locked Out of Heaven,' the lead single from last year's 'Unorthodox Jukebox,' received the most pop airplay of the year. Considering the high amount of traffic at the format through 2013, that's no small feat.

The song, which nods to the Police, melodically-speaking, was a maaaaj smash for the superstar, and it was on the radio all the time, so this news doesn’t surprise us.

The singer is also in residency at The Chelsea in Las Vegas, the new performance space at The Cosmopolitan. He's bringing the swoon and croon to Sin City through August in batches of dates.

His latest single is 'Gorillas,' a lascivious, but fun romp if there ever was one!
