Robin Thicke Sets Hot 100 Record, Ciara Drops on Billboard 200

Robin Thicke has the year's longest run at no.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 thanks to "Blurred Lines," his breakthrough single.

According to Billboard, the song just earned its seventh week at no.1, spending the most time at the summit.

"As "Lines" spends a seventh week at No. 1 on the Hot 100, the song passes Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" (featuring Wanz) for the longest run atop the chart this year. "Shop" led for six nonconsecutive weeks in February-April (wrapped around Baauer's five-week domination with "Harlem Shake"). Maroon 5 boasts the last longer command on the Hot 100 with "One More Night," which spent nine weeks at No. 1 in September-November last year," reports Billboard.

In related chart news, Ciara's new album, "Ciara," has dropped significantly on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Sliding 2-20, the album sold just over 13,000 copies in its second week on the tally.

Ciara's new album features contributions from Nicki Minaj and Future.
