(AllHipHop News) 2018 is going down as a historic year for R&B/Pop superstar Bruno Mars. His 24K Magic won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in January, and he picked up an additional five trophies at The Recording Academy ceremony that night.
Mars earned another major accomplishment in '18. The 33-year-old musician's debut LP, Doo-Wops & Hooligans, spent its 400th week on the Billboard 200 chart. This makes Bruno Mars just the 9th act to cross that milestone.
Doo-Wops & Hooligans is the first album released in this decade and only the third non-compilation/non-soundtrack to make that exclusive list. The 2010 project rose two spots to #153 on the most recent Billboard tally. 24K Magic currently sits at #102.
The other albums to spend at least 400 weeks on the Billboard 200 are Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon, Bob Marley & The Wailers’ Legend, Journey’s Greatest Hits, Metallica’s Metallica, Johnny Mathis' Johnny’s Greatest Hits, the My Fair Lady original cast recording, Guns N' Roses' Greatest Hits, and Eminem's Curtain Call: The Hits.
In August, good kid, m.A.A.d city by Kendrick Lamar crossed the 300-week mark on the Billboard 200. Eminem (with Recovery, The Eminem Show, and Curtain Call: The Hits) is the only other Hip Hop artist to have an album to spend at least 300 weeks on the chart. Drake's Take Care is coming close with 297 total weeks.
