Robin Thicke Scores First No. 1 Album With Blurred Lines

(Radio.com) It only took six albums and ten years, but Robin Thicke has a No. 1 album. He claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 album chart for the first time this week with his latest, Blurred Lines. The album sold 177,000 copies in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Sales for Blurred Lines were driven by its title track, which is currently in the position to claim Song of the Summer status for 2013 in its ninth week at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

The song has also permeated pop culture, from countless YouTube parodies to a recent Vine gone viral of a woman dancing to the tune in the back of a car.

Thicke has further boosted the song's profile with a cheeky performance with the Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and cranking it out for The Colbert Report after Daft Punk was forced to pull out of a highly publicized booking. more on this story
