The song becomes his sixth No. 1 on the radio airplay tally, pulling him even with Bruno Mars for the most leaders among males
Justin Timberlake ties the record for the most No. 1s (six) by a male on Billboard's Nielsen BDS-based Pop Songs radio airplay chart (which launched the week of Oct. 3, 1992), as "Mirrors" rises 2-1. He equals the sum of Bruno Mars, who tallied his sixth No. 1 last month with "When I Was Your Man." (Mars, meanwhile, debuts at No. 29 with his new single "Treasure," which he performed last night to open the Billboard Music Awards; all charts will be refreshed Thursday (May 23) on Billboard.com.)
Among men, Timberlake and Mars outrank Nelly (five Pop Songs No. 1s) and Flo Rida (four). Rihanna leads all artists with 10 leaders on the list.
