"Blurred Lines" sold 60,000 more copies than this week's number two album, Five Finger Death Punch's new release "The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell: Volume 1."
Jay-Z's "Magna Carta... Holy Grail fell from two to three, Tech N9ne's "Something Else" and the Backstreet Boys' "In A World Like This" debuted at number four and five, respectively; while Gomez's fourth album (her first solo) falls all the way to number eight.
Thicke also became the first performer to have one single sell over 400,000 downloads in four different weeks.
