Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" Breaks Record For Highest Radio Audience Ever

SANTA MONICA, Calif., July 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Robin Thicke 's ubiquitous No. 1 single "Blurred Lines," featuring T.I. & Pharrell, continues its full-scale domination of the airwaves this summer, having broken the record for the highest radio audience ever recorded. As of this week, the track has reached more than 242.65 million listeners, breaking the previous record of 188.8 million. This achievement follows on the heels of the track breaking the record for biggest-single week downloads so far this year when it racked up more than 428,000 during the week ending June 23 rd.  

A bonafide phenomenon, "Blurred Lines" is No. 1 for a third week in a row at Pop Radio and for a fourth week in a row at the Rhythmic radio format. It has spent seven consecutive weeks at No. 1 Billboard's Hot 100 (Thicke's first appearance atop the chart), surpassing Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" for the longest stretch at No. 1 so far this year. The track has also reached No. 1 in 80 countries around the world. "Blurred Lines" has been certified 3x-platinum with more than 3.5 million in sales to date. The eye-catching video, directed by Diane Martel, has racked up more than 104 million views on YouTube. Watch it here.

The song is the title track to Thicke's upcoming new album, which will be released by Star Trak/Interscope Records on July 30 th. The album will be sold as a standard 11-song package, a deluxe package that features three bonus tracks, and as a special deluxe edition, which includes the three bonus tracks plus two remixes.

About Robin Thicke Robin Thicke has established himself as one of the most respected singer-songwriters in soul and R&B music today. The musician, composer, and actor, released his critically acclaimed debut album, A Beautiful World, in 2003 under the name "Thicke." Soon after, he came out with his breakthrough second release, 2006's The Evolution Of Robin Thicke. Now on the way to double platinum status, Evolution's mega hit "Lost Without U" became the #1 most played song in Urban Adult Contemporary BDS and topped four Billboard charts simultaneously. The award-winning multiplatinum superstar returned to center stage in 2008 with Something Else, a joyful and modern tribute to the '70s soul and pop records that have inspired an extraordinary career. Revered by critics as one of the best soul albums in years, this '70s-inspired album dealt with racism, poverty, and love in the hits "Dreamworld," "Magic," and "The Sweetest Love." In December of 2009 Robin released Sex Therapy. The title song was hailed by critics as "the sexiest song of the year." Robin's fifth studio album, Love After War was released in December of 2011.
