Robin Thicke finally will have some sense of authority when he advises contestants on Duets. Having achieved moderate career success prior to his time as a reality television judge, the singer is now proud to call his recently released single Blurred Lines a Billboard number one!
While he certainly has seen a fair amount of career success, in the past Robin Thicke has never come close to comparing to fellow Duets judge Kelly Clarkson in terms of popularity. And while he still isn’t overtaking Kelly for the umber of albums sold or radio plays, he can at least boast a number one spot on the Billboard chart. After proving quite the sensation in the United Kingdom, the craze surrounding Robin Thicke’s latest single has finally crossed the pond.
Robin has been super excited about the success of his single, although he’s still a bit surprised at the amount of airplay it’s receiving in the UK. While eager to replicate that success in the United States, Robin continues to express enthusiasm, explaining, “It’s an honor and a pleasure to be number one in the UK. It’s something I’ve always dreamed of and I am so grateful to all the people who made this dream come true.”
A number one in America signifies yet another dream coming true for Robin Thicke, as the the musician was quick to acknowledge on Twitter. Upon hearing the great news, he tweeted, “#BlurredLines just hit #1 on the @billboard hot 100!”
Given his currently jam-packed schedule, Robin hasn’t been able to say much more about how it feels to be a number one artist…but we’re sure he’ll elaborate plenty in days to come.
