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.
