Robin Thicke is a testament to the age-old adage “good things come to those that wait”.
For, over a decade after his debut album hit shelves, the ‘Lost Without You’ maestro has found his way to the top of albums and singles charts with his latest project ‘Blurred Lines’ (parent album and lead single respectively).
Laying on thick an extensive month-long promo campaign for the project proved to pay off as reports last week indicated it would see Robin soar to the tally’s top spot upon its refreshing this week.
Now, reports are showing the crooner has even bested those forecasted numbers, giving him his best first week sales to date:
‘Blurred Lines’ First Week Sales: 174,000
Congrats are certainly in order to the blue-eyed soulster who, per HitsDailyDouble, surpassed his first week projected sales by over 40,000 units! The news comes as a long overdue reward for Thicke who has lent his incomparable falsetto to a number of rhythm-laden hits over the past 10 years.
Here’s hoping this is just the beginning of Robin’s rise to prominence and the resurgence of the genre he never abandoned.
