Robin Thicke’s monster Summer hit, “Blurred Lines” continues as the #1 song in the U.S. again this week, and has now he;d this position for at least the last three weeks. The song has been on the charts for 19 weeks, and seems headed to become one of the biggest pop music hits of all time. Katy Perry has proven some strength with “Roar” which shot up from #85 to #2 last week and this week continues at #2. Despite her silly VMA performance, Miley Cyrus’s attempt at pop music, “We Can’t Stop” hangs on at #3 this week and last week, down from the #2 position it held two weeks ago. Robin Thicke, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus each at least partially wrote their respective songs, proving some writing skills of each artist to pen a monster hit. This is one of the few times in music history where three monster hits manage to hang on to the top chart positions with little movement, proving the strength of these three acts.
Robin Thicke has one popular version of his music video for mass airplay and also a very popular topless model version of the music video song which is a huge Internet hit and both videos feature those hashtag printovers as a new style for this unique monster hit video. The 36 year old singer is actually a married family man with a small child, but the video and image he creates is that of a handsome playboy type surrounded with beautiful young (and often half naked)women.
