‘Get Lucky’: Pharrell Williams Dominates UK Radio

Published: Wednesday 7th Aug 2013 by David

Tastes may change, but Pharrell Williams stands as one musical force whose influence is ever present.

For, 18 years after creating the BLACKstreet classic ‘Tonight’s the Night’, the Countertenor finds himself riding UK airwaves- reaching audiences that see him dominate the market’s radio system.

In the last week alone, his Daft Punk led ‘Get Lucky‘ and Robin Thicke driven ‘Blurred Lines’ have seen the producer reach an audience of 135.3 million, when each cut’s respective impacts are added together.

In doing this, the game changer occupies the #2 and #3 spot on the UK Radio Airplay Chart, robbed of the top spot by Avicii‘s ‘Wake Me Up’ which rocked its way to the top with 79.01 million impressions.

However, when all of Pharrell‘s impressions are thrown together, he finds himself- at least on a technical tip- being the highest played act on UK radio, standing as the only act on this week’s chart to have two or more jams in the Top Three!

Elsewhere on the chart, Rihanna‘s ‘Diamonds’ enjoyed 12.11 million impressions in the last week, while Miguel’s ‘Adorn’ rises to #11 on the Urban chart, one week after spending its 45th week on the tally at #19.

    Phaedra Williams = Counter-Tenor?

    TGJ Please… Phaedra Williams ain’t no mo’fuckn damn Counter-Tenor,,,,,,, all he does is shriek.

    .Michael Bolton is a Counter-Tenor
    .Stevie Wonder is a Counter-Tenor
    .Michael Jackson was a Counter-Tenor
    .Brian McKnight and Wanya Morris are counter-tenors.

    Because they can belt high, mezzo-soprano- like notes in both their CHEST/FULL voice and HEAD/FALSETTO voice.

    1st you said cedric was a ‘mezzo soprano’ and now this… Stick to gossiping & bitching about Rihanna. This site isn’t in-depth enough to sound smart.

      Excuse me, Ciara is a mezzo. EVERY single has a vocal type. It’s the RANGE that makes the difference between Ciara and Beyonce, not the tone.

      • LAWWWWWWWD August 7, 2013

        Girl… BYE!

        Ciara is NOT no damn [Mezzo-Soprano].

        Cedric is a [Soubrette] – equivalent to that of J.Lo and Britney Spears.

        Beyonce, Celine Dion, Pink, Jennifer Hudson and Christina Aguilera etc – are REAL [Mezzo-Soprano] singers.

    • UnthinkableKeys August 7, 2013

      @LAWWWD. You HAVE to be a hater for this one. You’re angry because they decided to show their musical knowledge? Yes it’s true Ciara can’t sing but by all measures she is a mz.

      • LAWWWWWWWD August 7, 2013

        AAAHHH,,, NO SHE AINT!

    • Woman2Woman August 7, 2013

      ‘Stick to gossiping and bitching about Rihanna’. B**** stfu. Because if they did that you’d diss them too.

    • Fierce & all August 7, 2013

      It’s about timbre and weight. Ciara is no one’s mezzo soprano.

    Comgrats to pharrel. And f*** rihanna and her hits she buys from writers like buying fruit u don’t plant from the market, and claim u made the friut sweet. Until she writes or contribute to any of her songs that becomed a hit I won’t congrtualete her . For now I will congratulate SIA and all other writers of her hit.
