Robin Thicke's major hit "Blurred Lines" was officially dubbed the most downloaded track of all time by the Official Charts Company, selling 1.54 million copies.
As Digital Spy reports, the Pharrell-produced tune is closely followed by 1.53 million copies Adele's "Someone Like You" has sold as one of the only two songs ever to cross the 1.5 million sales mark.
Maroon 5 round up the Top 3 with "Moves Like Jagger," while Kings of Leon stand out as the only rock representative, reaching No. 10 with "Sex on Fire."
"I'm so honored, the success of 'Blurred Lines' is a dream come true," Thicke noted in a brief statement.
Official Charts Company chief executive Martin Talbot added, "'Blurred Lines' is surely one of the catchiest pop hits of all time, so its success is no great surprise. But to become one of only two tracks to have been downloaded 1.5 million times and climb to the top of the poll as the biggest download of all time is an incredible achievement."
