Fourteen weeks and counting. Robin Thicke's hit single, "Blurred Lines" is showing no signs of slowing down, earning a fourteenth week atop the R&B Songs chart Thursday.

According to Billboard, the hit single, which also serves as the title track for his latest album, moved another 291,000 downloads this week. On top of that, radio airplay and streams continue to rise or at least hold, with 1.8 million U.S. streams of "Blurred Lines" and 228.9 million all format audience impressions at radio (according to Nielsen BDS).

In addition to holding the top spot on the R&B Songs chart for a fourteenth week, "Blurred Lines" is no.1 on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs tally for an eleventh week.

Last but not least, "Blurred Lines" retained the top spot on the coveted Billboard Hot 100 this week — this despite the debut of Katy Perry's massive single, "Roar."

"Robin Thicke tops the Billboard Hot 100 for an 11th week with "Blurred Lines" (featuring T.I. and Pharrell). The song narrowly holds off Katy Perry's "Roar," which blasts 85-2 following its first full week of sales. Lady Gaga's "Applause" adds to the top 10's shakeup, debuting at No. 6, also after its first week of sales," reports Billboard. "Despite "Roar" arriving as the top-selling song in the U.S., Thicke's lead in streaming and airplay is just enough for "Lines" to fend off Perry's challenge."
