REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Touchdown for FilAm musician Bruno Mars.
Mars’ half time performance with the Red Hot Chili Peppers on Sunday drew the biggest number of viewers in Super Bowl history.
The Fox Network, which broadcasted the Super Bowl, announced that Mars’ half time show drew 115.3 million viewers—beating records set by Madonna two years ago and Beyonce last year.
Billboard magazine also reports sales of his album “Unorthodox Jukebox” are up 164 percent since the half time performance.
The rise is expected to account for more than 40,000 copies sold just this week.
The album is projected to re-enter the Top 10 when new sales figures are released later this week.
