The entire year of 2013 was monumental for "Blurred Lines" singer Robin Thicke. Now, 2014 is kicking off to just as good of a start for the R&B crooner.
First he released a big album, with an even bigger lead single. Now, he has a second single that's well on its way to new heights, peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.
According to Billboard, it was announced yesterday that Thicke had just scored his second No. 1 hit on the Adult R&B Songs Chart for 2013 with his single "4 The Rest of My Life".
The publication also stated that the song 'soared 3-1 on this week's charts'. The record is now the fourth overall No. 1 hit of Thicke's career.
"4 The Rest of My Life," was actually released May 21, 2013. The song, which is the second single from Thicke's sixth studio album, "Blurred Lines," was written and produced by both Thicke and Star Trek Entertainment producer ProJay.
Billboard also made the announcement of Thicke's success on Twitter.
