Bruno Mars’ ‘Uptown Funk’ Replaces Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ at Number One on Billboard Hot 100
It was bound to happen eventually. After spending an impressive seven weeks at the top spot on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, Taylor Swift's 'Blank Space' has finally been dethroned by the insanely catchy 'Uptown Funk' courtesy of Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson.
Of the single, Mark said (via Billboard): "It's definitely one of the best things I've ever done. And I know that it's one of Bruno's favorite things that he's ever done, as well." Considering how well it's doing -- not to mention how fantastic the song is, itself -- we're not surprised.
This marks Ronson's first foray into the Hot 100, and Bruno's sixth time earning the number one spot. More interesting is the fact that in the 56 years the Hot 100 list has been around, only nine male artists exist that can claim more number ones than Bruno. Michael Jackson is, unsurprisingly, in the lead with 13 singles, followed by Stevie Wonder with ten.
Taylor shouldn't be discouraged though -- not that she seriously could be at this point. She helped bar male artists from reaching the top five of the Hot 100 list for seven straight weeks between September and November. There's also that whole having the best selling album of the year thing. Plus those countless records she broke. Not to mention her total contentment with her life right now. So, you know, you win some you lose some. Or, in Taylor's case -- you pretty much win nearly everything. Except when Bruno Mars wins, instead.
