“That’s What I Like” marks Mars’ second Top 5 Billboard Hot 100 single from the now RIAA certified platinum album, 24K Magic. The smash record also marks Mars’ first #1 single on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart and his 14th Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 to date.
Mars’ critically-acclaimed album 24K Magic has officially been certified platinum by the RIAA. The album entered the “Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums” chart at #1 upon its arrival and also marked Mars’ highest selling first week. 24K Magic has remained among the Top 10 on the Soundscan/Billboard 200 since its November release.
Mars recently performed “That’s What I Like” as part of two show-stopping appearances on the 59th Annual GRAMMY® Awards, earning him praise from Billboard as “one of pop’s finest showmen.” In addition, his performance of the single at last week’s BRIT Awards led to the week’s biggest sales boost to any artist appearing at the annual event.
Mars will both perform and be honored at the 2017 iHeartRadio Awards where he will receive the coveted Innovator Award, airing this Sunday, March 5th at 8PM ET/5PM PT via TBS, TNT, and truTV (check local listings).
