Katy Perry’s “Roar” Finally Ends Robin Thicke’s Hot 100 Reign With “Blurred Lines”

40d17325d9b23c85a55991499d3cdc30 Katy Perry’s “Roar” Finally Ends Robin Thicke’s Hot 100 Reign With “Blurred Lines”

Robin Thicke had a good run with “Blurred Lines,” didn’t he? Last week alone, the relentless summer jam became one of only 14 songs that have spent at least 12 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Alas, all good, oversexed things must come to an end, and with the onset of September, it somehow seems fitting that the summer-long stint of “Blurred Lines” atop the main singles chart should finally reach its conclusion.

And so it’s Katy Perry‘s “Roar” that does “Blurred Lines” in. After two weeks stuck in the runner-up position, Katy’s lead Prism single does what we all kind of knew it would by becoming her eighth #1 on the Hot 100. (And to think, she has that many chart-topping singles and her third album isn’t even out yet.)

For those pop nerds out there keeping track, “Roar” is now the eighth song to top the Hot 100 chart in 2013, and it marks Katy Perry’s first #1 single since 2012′s “Part Of Me.” (The latter’s follow-up, “Wide Awake,” peaked at #2 on the Hot 100 last year.) “Roar” sold 448,000 digital downloads last week.

Other movers and shakers on the Hot 100: Eminem‘s “Berzerk,” which debuts at #3, Lady Gaga’s “Applause,” which sees a 31% increase in sales following the MTV VMAs, but drops one position to #5, and Lorde‘s “Royals,” now in the Top 10 (at #8) for the very first time.

Do you think “Roar” deserves its chart-topping status? Let us know your thoughts below, or by hitting us up on Facebook and Twitter.
