“When I Was Your Man” – the latest single from Mars’ just-released sophomore album, “Unorthodox Jukebox” – has reached the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100, where it joins the album’s first single, “Locked Out Of Heaven,” which recently spent six consecutive weeks atop the chart.

The official companion video for “When I Was Your Man” – directed by Mars and his frequent collaborator, Cameron Duddy (“Locked Out Of Heaven,” “The Lazy Song”) – premiered earlier this month and has drawn close to 5 million individual views at Bruno’s official YouTube channel.

Mars recently led a performance on the Grammy Awards fronting a tribute to Bob Marley alongside Sting and Rihanna, which marked the Grammy-winner’s third consecutive year to perform on the acclaimed show.

 “Unorthodox Jukebox” entered the Billboard 200 chart at #2 with sales in excess of 192,000 – the singer/songwriter/producer/musician’s highest first week sales debut.
