Robin Thicke has hit quite the milestone.

The “Blurred Lines” singer reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, as his bouncy hit with Pharrell and T.I. is showing real lasting power.

“Blurred Lines” peaked last week at number six on the chart, but jumped this week to allow Thicke to top the Billboard chart for the first time in his long career. It’s sold 315,000 digital downloads as well, and is the first song to top the Digital, Airplay and Streaming Gainer charts at once. Chalk that up to a ton of radio play, as well as a lot of action on Spotify.

It also signaled a double-dip for Pharrell, who is also featured on Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” which sits at no. 3. That means Pharrell has two top-five hits at once – he’s the real “Lucky” one.
