Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” Was 2013′s Best Selling Single

Justin Timberlake may have ruled when it came to albums sold in 2013, but it was another crooner, Robin Thicke, who cleaned up with regards to single sales last year. Inescapable summer jam “Blurred Lines” sold 6.5 million digital downloads when all was said and done, putting it just ahead of runner-ups Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, whose “Thrift Shop” racked up 6.15 million. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are the only ones to post two songs in the Top 10 of the year’s top sellers (“Can’t Hold Us” is at #8 with 4.26 million).

Ten years after the iTunes store launched and SoundScan began tracking digital sales, 2013 marked the first year where there was a decline in that area, Billboard points out. Overall, sales of individual songs were down 6% compared to last year. (Could this be a reason why?)

Head below to see the list of what did sell big in 2013.
