It seems the controversy over the video for Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” has helped push the song’s popularity. The song has been the number one tune on several of Billboard’s Top lists for five weeks.
The song which features Pharrell Williams and rapper T.I. heads the Billboard Hot 100 songs list, the number one song on the Radio play list, and is also the top On-Demand song. The song is also the leading tune on the list of R&B//Hip Hop combinations on Digital and Streaming songs.
The song, which is the top song in the Uk and Canada, also heads the list of tunes being selected as mobile ring tones and is the number one Songs of Summer.
Blurred Lines has certainly stirred up some heat this summer.
Earlier in the year the video for the song was banned by YouTube because the video shows nudity. It has also drawn criticism from a rape charity who says the video encourages rape and violence against women.
Miley Cyrus’s We Can’t Stop is the number two song on the Top 100 followed by Imagine Dragons by RadioActive, Get Lucky by Daft Punk, and Treasure by Bruno Mars rounding out the top five.
Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail is number one in the Top 200 Albums list and is also the leading album on the Digital Albums list.
