American R&B singer and songwriter Robin Thicke is continuing to rule the UK charts. The ‘Lost Without U’ singer is spending the fourth week at number one spot with his huge summer hit ‘Blurred Lines’, it was announced on Sunday, June 23, 2013.
The Official Charts Company stated that Thicke sold additional 133,000 copies of the single during the past week, which accounts to 718,000 copies of total UK sales, making ‘Blurred Lines’ the second best-selling track of 2013. The catchy song, which features hip-hop stars T.I. and Pharrell Williams, has proved to be a massive hit all around the world, claiming number one spot in the US and many other countries.
Second spot on the British pop charts was taken by American singer Jason Derulo and his new release titled ‘The Other Side’. When it comes to new entries on the charts, Dizzee Rascal, London-based rapper, claimed number five spot for ‘Goin’ Crazy’, his collaboration with British pop superstar Robbie Williams.
There were no surprises regarding the album charts. As expected, US-based rapper and new dad Kanye West secured the number one spot with his highly-anticipated new release ‘Yeezus’.

After achieving great success with ’13’ and claiming the top spot last week, heavy metal veterans Black Sabbath will have to settle for the number two spot.
