Comment: Billboard have only one job in life, post the charts on time. They failed miserably this week, and blame Nielsen sure but also blame an enterprise that is all over the place. Meanwhile, Bruno Mars is a real rarity, 24K Magic started so slowly, yet every song he released as a single hit the charts, today the album is double platinum and the singles have accumulated to quadruple platinum. I like the album OK, I gave it a N- and might up it to B due to its success. But I don’t like it that much, it sounds like a facsimile of its pop disco funk jones.
