An American singer named Robin Thicke has rocketed to the top of the U.K. singles charts. Thicke’s single “Blurred Lines” is now at #1 on the Official Charts Company’s top 10 singles chart.
The company has stated that “Blurred Lines” has also broken this year’s record for fastest-selling single. The song sold 190,000 copies during its first week out, beating Naughty Boy’s “La La La,” which is currently at #2.
“It is an honour and a pleasure to be Number 1 in the UK,” said Robin. “It’s something I’ve always dreamed of, and I am so grateful to all the people who made this dream come true. Thank you!”
Thicke’s music video for “Blurred Lines,” which debuted on March 20, now has over 34 million YouTube views. The video features Thicke, T.I., and Pharrell Williams dancing with scantily-clad women. Williams also appears in the current #3-ranked single, Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.”
