Robin Thicke‘s song Blurred Lines has become the most downloaded track in UK music history!

The track, which also features TI and Pharrell Williams, has sold 1.54 million copies since it was released in May 2013. It has sold over 70,000 copies since the start of 2014 alone.

Between all of the controversy surrounding the lyrics and that MTV performance with Miley Cyrus, it looks like all the attention just helped sales.

Thicke said: “I’m so honoured, the success of Blurred Lines is a dream come true.”

Blurred Lines overtakes the previous biggest selling download, Adele‘s Someone Like You, which has now sold 1.53 million copies to date.

The all-time top five also features 2011′s Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5 featuring Christina Aguilera, Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye featuring Kimbra released the same year, and I Gotta Feeling by Black Eyed Peas which was first released in 2009.
