American R&B singer and songwriter Robin Thicke has all the reasons to enjoy 2013 so far. After an amazing success of his single ‘Blurred Lines’, which became an international hit, the star managed to score his first No. 1 album. A little over a decade after his debut album ‘A Beautiful World’ was released, Thicke found himself on the top of the Billboard 200 chart with his sixth album, ‘Blurred Lines’.

Robin Thicke scores his first No. 1 album with Blurred Lines

The ‘When I Get You Alone’ singer sold 177,000 copies of the record in its first week and his Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 song, ‘Blurred Lines’ definitely played a big part in netting the star’s best sales week ever. Thicke’s latest album easily managed to surpass his previous biggest frame, ‘Something Else’, which was released in 2008 and launched at No. 3 place with 137,000 copies sold.

The ‘Lost Without You’ singer’s first album, ‘A Beautiful World’ was released in April 2003 and spent just one week on the chart, at No. 152. The debut record was billed to Thicke, as opposed to Robin Thicke, but the singer’s subsequent albums all carried his full name. The ‘Pretty Lil’ Heart’ singer is the sixth act in 2013 to reach No. 1 after more than a decade since their debut album was released. Thicke follows in the footsteps of Queens of the Stone Age, Black Sabbath, Gary Allan, Chris Tomlin and Daft Punk.
