Robin Thicke Rockets Back To #1 With ‘Blurred Lines’ In UK

Published: Sunday 14th Jul 2013 by Sam

There’s nothing unclear about the success of Robin Thicke‘s mega-smash ‘Blurred Lines’.

Already a chart topper in the US, Australia, Canada, and countless other countries, the Pharrell Williams number has enjoyed a particularly notable run in the UK – where it climbed back to #1 tonight on the Official UK Singles Chart.

Full story below…

Having hit the paramount spot in June, the risque track remained there for four weeks before slipping two places last week. However, the last seven days saw the song shift in another 80,000 copies in Britain, bringing its total increasingly close to the one million mark (916,000 to be exact) and helping the song climb back to #1 on the tally.

Granted the numbers speak volumes, we feel it imperative to further underline the gravity of the feat…

For, while ‘Lines’ has crossed the 2 million sales mark in Thicke’s home country of America, the much smaller size and population  of the UK means it’s actually a bigger hit there when placed in such context. What’s more, the cut serves as the fastest selling UK single of the year so far.

In any case, the long and short of the matter is that ‘Blurred Lines’ is essentially slaying everywhere…which begs the question of whether the mammoth success of the song will translate into solid album sales. The answer to that question arrives July 30th when its like-titled parent album arrives in stores. {Click here to read our EXCLUSIVE preview}

For now, though, check out the video for ‘Lines’ – which, as at writing, has over 91 million views!
