(CBS NEWS) – As you continue counting what “rhymes with hug me,” Robin Thicke will be counting the number of sales he’s raking in since last week’s release of his album, “Blurred Lines.”
The R& B pop star scored his first-ever No. 1 debut with “Blurred Lines,” which sold more than 170,00 albums in its first week. It marks Thicke’s best sales week ever, but still falls short of some of this year’s top-choppers, including Jay-Z’s “Magna Carter,” which sold roughly 527,000 copies in its first week.
“Blurred Lines” is Thicke’s sixth studio album — and had a lot of buzz thanks to the success of the lead track, which continues to dominate; “Blurred Lines,” featuring T.I. and Pharrell, sold 400,000 just this past week. The song has also reached No. 1 in 102 countries around the world, and the video has racked up more than 126 million views on YouTube – and counting.
