Well, he must be pretty happy. We just found out that Robin Thicke tops the UK singles chart for 2013 with his hit, Blurred Lines. I think very few people can argue the logic in that. Outside of Get Lucky from Daft Punk, it was definitely the song we heard the most in 2014. A throwback hit sounding more like old 70’s Motown, we only have on thing to say about how Robin Thicke tops the UK singles chart. We know you want it. Get it? We used a line from the song?
TheSingersRoom has all the details, but we can put it in simple terms for you. Well, there isn’t much else to the story. Robin Thicke tops UK singles chart for 2013. Heck, the whole story was in the title, actually.
A couple other acts who came close but did not quite snag the lead from Robin Thicke. Katy Perry for Roar, Rihanna with Stay, and Justin Timberlake with Mirrors. But Robin Thicke walked away with the honors, with Blurred Lines selling almost 1.5 million copes since its debut. We can’t help but wonder if Beyonce’s new record would have pushed it out if it had come out a little earlier.
Guess we will never know.
