.FUN Makes Digital Sales History with “We Are Young”[POLL]
Sales of .fun’s hit “We Are Young” are burning “brighter than the sun.” Billboard reports that the track, which has just snagged its sixth straight week at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, has also set a digital sales record. It’s the first song ever to rack up 300,000 or more digital downloads for six weeks.
The only other song that previously came close to this kind of steady sales was Eminem and Rihanna’s smash “Love the Way You Lie,” which sold 300,000 copies or more for five weeks in 2010.
“We Are Young” has also just gone triple platinum, marking sales of three million copies. It’s the only song so far this year to hit that milestone.
