Social Media Reacts After Nick Cannon Insinuates Bruno Mars Has ‘More Hits’ Than Beyoncé (Video)
Social media users are sharing their reactions after Nick Cannon seemingly implied that Bruno Mars has “more hits” than Beyoncé.
Nick Cannon Shared His Thoughts On His Radio Show
Nick Cannon shared his sentiment while recently hosting his radio show ‘The Daily Cannon.’
In a video clip, Cannon explained his sentiments.
“No offense, but I would rather go to a Bruno Mars show than a Beyoncé or Taylor Swift [show]…”
As his co-hosts reacted in disagreement, Cannon proceeded to question the group.
“Who got more hits?”
When his co-hosts replied, “Beyoncé,” Cannon responded with astonishment.
“Beyoncé got more hits than Bruno Mars?!”
One of his co-hosts began to list Beyoncé’s numerous singles. However, Cannon’s opinion did not change.
“I’m a Beyoncé fan… I still believe Bruno Mars actually has more hit records…”
Social Media Users Were Not Impressed With Nick Cannon's Stance
Social media users quickly shared their reaction to Cannon’s statement in The Shade Room’s comment section. Many appeared astonished at the comedian’s stance.
One Instagram user, @k___str8, wrote.
“Nick, stick to fatherhood. Thanks”
Instagram user, @d.bakerthemaker, added.
“Nick cannon just talking. He just wanna sound different”
While one Instagram user, @tonybaker, appeared to agree with Cannon’s initial sentiments of who he’d rather see perform.
“I would rather see Bruno. I feel like my energy would be higher. Beyonce would be epic im sure.”
Another user, @iamnomercyy, appeared to agree.
“Nick Was Wrong About The Hits , Beyoncé Has Like 23 Hit Songs And Bruno Has 7 Number One Hits , But ‼️Besides The Hits Bruno Numbers Is Wayyyyyy Bigger And Better Then Hers , He Also Has 32 Singles , He Beyoncé Has About 82 Singles And It Took Her 7 Studio Albums To Get Where Shes At , Bruno Only Has 32 Single With 3 Studio Albums And Has Almost Half Of Her 82 Singles And His Numbers Is WAYYY Better…”
However, Instagram user @kingofstyle1990 defended Beyoncé and questioned Cannon about how many hit singles he’s recorded.
“Bruno is INCREDIBLE, but he doesn’t have anywhere near the amount of hits as the Queen, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles Carter. Let’s not forget, she also has Destiny’s Child 🔥.. As a solo artist she has 7 #1albums 🔥…Sold out stadium tours and she’s the greatest living entertainer. Don’t play with her Nick…how many hits you got?!”
Comedian Funny Marco even hopped in on the comments, tagging Cannon directly.
“@nickcannon Let me talk to you interview”
The Conversation Also Continued On Twitter
The conversation surrounding Cannon’s comments wasn’t only limited to Instagram, however. On Monday evening, the comedian and radio host took to Twitter to pose the question to his followers.
Their responses continued to be mixed.

Why do you do this to yourself Nick? Bruno is great and totally fine if that's what you prefer but Beyonce has over 30 top 10 singles and 32 grammys. Bruno has less than half but sold a ton of the same 18 records

Its fine if they like Bey more, but don't disrespect Bruno like that.
Leave the Door Open
That's What I Like
Locked out of Heaven
The list goes on. I'd rather see Bruno too. I have once. Amazing show.
