Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines tops Britain’s all-time charts

Wednesday April 23, 2014

Hit-maker Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines has been revealed as the single most downloaded track of all-time in the United Kingdom.

The revelation came from the Official Charts Company and was unveiled by BBC Radio 1. When the catchy tune was released in 2013, it topped the charts with 190,000 opening sales – and it is still going strong with the track being announced as “song of the summer”.

The controversial hit, which features rapper T.I and producer Pharrell Williams also on vocals, is one of two songs to sell more than 1.5 million downloads ever, with Adele’s Someone Like You following closely.

Pharrell has also been successful with his very own newest track, Happy, which has surpassed 1.3 million sales, taking it to an all-time ninth place in digital sales.

Last year the UK’s digital track sales generated a total of £121.7 million, according to the British Phonographic Industry.
