'Unorthodox Jukebox' gets Bruno Mars gets his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200

Congratulations are in order for STAR favorite Bruno Mars, whose latest album, "Unorthodox Jukebox," has earned him his first Number 1 spot on the Billboard Top 200. In just one week, the album sold 95,000 copies.

Seattle's own Macklemore and Ryan Lewis also had a huge sales week, with their album "The Heist" picking up big numbers as well.

It deserves to be noted that both artists got high (numbers) with a little help from their friends, though; last week, Amazon dropped the price of mp3s dramatically, resulting in almost a 100% increase in sales for Mars, Nielson SoundScan reports.

Mars will be in Seattle at Key Arena on July 21st -- and we'll be giving away tickets all day today and tomorrow! Find out more information on our contest page.
