Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” Holds Longest Reign On Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart
Robin Thicke must be doing something right.
According to Billboard, Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” sits at the No. 1 spot on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for the 16th week in a row. Thicke’s single featuring T.I. and Pharrell claims the longest reign at the top since Mary J. Blige’s “Be Without You,” which was a 15-week leader in 2006.
While “Blurred Lines” was the song of the summer, there were a few recent hits that came close to Thicke’s accomplishment. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop” and Rihanna’s “Diamonds” each had a 14-week run last year.
