Beyoncé vs. Bruno Mars: These two music powerhouses showcase their unique styles and electrifying performances, captivating audiences worldwide with their undeniable talent and showmanship.
Nick Cannon recently made a controversial statement on his radio show, The Daily Cannon. He said he would prefer to hit up a Bruno Mars show rather than a Beyoncé or Taylor Swift one. When his co-hosts were shocked at his answer, he questioned, “Who got more hits?”
This comparison has not been made only by Cannon. Billboard magazine released a piece in 2017 titled “Bruno Mars vs. Beyoncé: Who Has the Better Discography?” The article concluded that Mars had more hits, but Beyoncé had more classic albums.
So, who does have more hits? It’s hard to say for sure. Both artists have had a string of successful singles. Mars has ten Billboard Hot 100 number-one hits, and Beyoncé, on the other hand, has had more albums debut at number one on the Billboard 200 list.
