Robin Thicke 'Blurred Lines' Tops Billboard Hot 100 for Sixth Consecutive Week, Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake Debut at No. 8 [VIDEO]
Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines became the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the sixth straight week Wednesday, tying the record for the longest period of time on the chart in 2013.
Blurred Lines, which features Pharrell Williams and T.I., remained at the top of the chart despite criticism over the song's lyrics and music video. Billboard reported Wednesday that Blurred Lines tied Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' Thrift Shop for most weeks at the top of the chart this year.

Similarly, electronic duo Daft Punk held on to the No. 2 position this week for their hit single Get Lucky. It is the song's fifth consecutive week in the No. 2 position, right below Blurred Lines for all five weeks. Get Lucky is No. 1 on the Dance/Electronic Songs chart, however, having held onto the top position for nine straight weeks.
The new Miley Cyrus single We Can't Stop maintained the No. 3 position after two weeks in the same position. It also crossed the $1 million mark in sales. Radioactive, the latest single from rock band Imagine Dragons maintained the No. 4 position while topping the Hot Rock Songs list for the 17th straight week.
Rounding out the top 5 was Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Ray Dalton with Can't Hold Us. The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart in May.
Jay-Z's Holy Grail, the first single off his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, debuted at No. 8 on the chart this week. The song, which features Justin Timberlake, was the second highest debut of the year, behind Baauer's No. 1 debut for Harlem Shake.

Florida Georgia Line's remix of Cruise with rapper Nelly charted in the No. 6 position while Bruno Mars' Treasure charted at No. 7. Timberlake's Mirrors came in at No. 9 while Anna Kendrick's Cups (Pitch Perfect's When I'm Gone) maintained the No. 10 position.
