Robin Thicke Nabs No. 1 Single In U.K.By: Amanda Crum - June 3, 2013
Robin Thicke recently collaborated on a song with T.I. and Pharrell Williams, and while some people credit the song’s success to a creative sampling of the Marvin Gaye hit “Got To Give It Up”, it looks like it was a majorly good decision on his part no matter what.
The single, “Blurred Lines”, has become the fastest-selling single of the year, selling 190,000 copies the first week it was available.
”‘Blurred Lines’ thus easily becomes the biggest single in the U.K. for U.S. soulman Thicke, whose only previous showing was the No. 11 success ‘Lost Without U’ in 2007. It’s also the second chart-topper to feature Williams in three weeks, following his appearance on Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky,’ which dipped 2-3 on the new list,” said Billboard Magazine.
