Cheeky summer smash Blurred Lines has sold over 700,000 copies in the last four weeks.

US R&B star Robin Thinke today tops the Official Singles Chart for a fourth week in a row with Blurred Lines.

The cheeky summer anthem, which also features TI and Pharrell Williams, fought off tough competition from Jason Derulo’s The Other Side (Number 2) to retain its position in this week’s race to Number 1. Blurred Lines is now the second biggest selling single of 2013 so far, clocking up a further 133,000 sales over the last seven days, to bring its total combined sales tally to 718,000 copies. Daft Punk’s Get Lucky, which also features Pharrell, remains this year’s biggest selling single, and is fast approaching a million copies. 

La La La by Naughty Boy FT Sam Smith, and Let Her Go by Passenger, both fall one place to Number 3 and Number 4, respectively, while Dizzee Rascal completes today’s Top 5 with Goin’ Crazy FT Robbie Williams (5).

New Releases And High Climbers

In addition to Jason Derulo’s The Other Side (Number 2) and Dizzee Rascal’s Goin’ Crazy FT Robbie Williams (5), there are four other new entries on this week’s Official Singles Chart Top 40.

BRIT Awards 2013 Critics’ Choice winner, Tom Odell, makes his Top 10 debut today with Another Love (10). The track is taken from his debut album, Long Way Down, which is released tomorrow (June 24).

Meanwhile, Arctic Monkeys debut one place behind him with Do I Wanna Know? (11); the Sheffield band, who are due to headline next weekend's Glastonbury festival, released their new single as a digital download on Wednesday (June 19) without any fanfare. Electronic trio London Grammar are also set to make their Official Singles Chart debut today with the hauntingly beautiful Wasting My Years (31).

While she may not have won last night’s grand finale, The Voice’s Leah McFall scores her second Top 40 single today with her rendition of Killing Me Softly climbing 69 places to Number 36. Ke$ha rounds off this week’s highest climbers with Crazy Kids FT Will.I.Am, which has shot up 40 places from Number 75 to 35.
