NEW YORK (AP) — Miley Cyrus twerked her way to the top of the charts and Justin Timberlake returned to music after a seven-year hiatus, but another artist owned music in 2013: Bruno Mars.
Billboard announced Friday that the pop crooner is the year’s top overall artist.
“It’s flattering. It’s just an honor,” Mars said in an interview this week. “I’m proud to be a part of this whole team that I have.”
The singer’s year included a No. 1 hit with “When I Was Your Man” and a top 5 hit with “Treasure.” His sophomore album, “Unorthodox Jukebox,” was released late last year and has sold more than 1.8 million units. It’s the second best-selling album of the year behind Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience.”
Mars added that listeners have resonated with his music because it’s “relatable.”
