Robin Thicke Breaks His Own British Sales Record With ‘Blurred Lines’

Published: Sunday 9th Jun 2013 by David

With EDM already on its way out, Robin Thicke and Pharell placed another nail in its coffin this week…when their smash hit single ‘Blurred Lines’ topped the British charts for a second consecutive week, breaking a record set by itself last week!

Details below…

In the last week, the jam has sold a sweet 199,000- mind blowing, considering the size of the UK market and that it has done so without heavy physical promo from any of its contributing parties.

In selling this much, it nabs the record for scoring the highest selling weekly UK sales figure this year- after nabbing the same record last week, surpassing efforts made by the likes of Emeli Sande, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna and the Brit-Pop King himself, Robbie Williams.

Sure to see his supporting album of the same name fare just as well in the market, Thicke’s enormous success in the UK comes after the song peaked at #6 in the US and was certified 2x Platinum in Australia!

    He deserve to have a night with me, he would never be the same again, a threesome with him, me and Justin Timberlake, i’m good in bed, i bet he is too, Justin seems like he still needs to learn something and i offer to teach him a few things.

    “With EDM already on its way out…”

    PLEASE let this be true! lol!

    Anyway, “Blurred Lines” is dope. I’m still bumpin “All Tied Up” from the awesome ‘Love After War’ album. But I’m looking forward to the new album in July!:)

    this song is just blowing up. it is a funky throwback mixed with modern sounds and rnb feel by robin thicke, all the makings of an average charting on billboard rnb charts, BUT its a hit. is THIS the sign that rnb is coiming back? and now usher is releasing twisted as a single AFTER the success of robin’s

    • R&B fan June 9, 2013

      yep, it is an r&b Marvin gaye sample… I youtubed Marvin Gaye after I heard this song….

      My mama got the Marvin Gaye song they sampled… ti sounds almost exactly the same… Pharrell just modernized it a little bit

  8. Rosie June 9, 2013

    Amen @ hardcore EDM fading! Hopefully artists like Robin, Daft Punk (with their album being VERY R&B oriented), and my fave get more hits in the future.

  9. R&B fan June 9, 2013

    R&B is back!!!!!!!!!

    And Robin & Pharrell did this by using the Marvin GAYE “Got to GIve it UP”.

    This is an ode to ole school r&b…

    it proves good music never dies

    I love this beautiful WHITE man.

    • Absolved June 10, 2013

      Wherever that beautiful “WHITE” man right now, rest assured that he’s not thinking about you at all.

  15. Will June 10, 2013

    so happy for Robin and Thank God EDM is out of the charts.

  16. The real xoxo June 10, 2013

    Well done however he hasn’t broken any records, he just stayed #1 for another week.
    Atleast the song is decent though!

  17. JOHNVIDAL June 10, 2013

    Congrats! Who would have thought?
    But seriously, this sentence alone: “In selling this much, it scores the record for being the highest selling song of the week in the UK”
    WHAT???? That´s called a record now too? No wonder Beyonce, Nicki Minaj or Rihanna break so many records in your mind… lol the delusions.
