For a 12th week, Robin Thicke‘s Blurred Lines holds the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Featuring T.I. & Pharrell Williams, it also leads the Radio Songs chart for an eighth week, even though it received a slight decline in airplay.

“Lines” also holds the #1 spot on the On-Demand Songs chart for an eighth week, while it slips to #2 on the Streaming Songs and Digital Songs charts.

The song, which is so far Robin’s best selling and charting song of his career, also claims a 12th week at #1 on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart.

It also spends a 15th (yes 15, the number after 14) week at #1 on the R&B Songs chart, serving as the 14th title to top the Hot 100 for at least 12 weeks.

This makes the song a strong contender at being #1 on Billboard’s Songs of the Summer chart, which will be compiled next week, with the season’s final rankings being revealed on Thursday September 5th.

Following its opening week sales of 557,000 last week, Katy Perry‘s Roar,” which serves as the sixth-largest digital total for a song in SoundScan history, stalls at #2 for a second week.

But have no fear KatyKats, “Roar” could still reach the #1 spot, since sales, airplay, and streaming for “Blurred Lines” is slowly coming to a close.

Coming in at #3 this week is Miley Cyrus, who has been buzzed about all week, with the lead single from her upcoming fourth studio album Bangerz, which is set to be released on October 8th, 2013.

We Can’t Stop managed to peak at #2 for three weeks on the chart, and it scores a 10th week at #1 on the Streaming Songs chart, serving as the first song to reach a domination of double-digit weeks since the chart launched earlier this year.

On the Digital Songs chart, it falls from #6 to #7 but jumps from #18 to #15 on the Radio Songs chart.

Coming in at #4 is Lady Gaga with Applause,” which serves as the lead single from her upcoming third studio album ARTPOP, which is set to be released in November of this year.

The premiere of its official video on August 19th serves as one of the core reasons for the Top 10 jump, where it also pounces from #9 to #3 on the Streaming Songs chart, and #36 to #12 on the On-Demand Songs chart.

On the Radio Songs chart, it moves five spaces up from #40 to #35.

Closing out the Top 5 this week is Imagine DragonsRadioactive,” which celebrates a year on the chart.

Falling from #4 to #5, it serves as the 34th song in the Hot 100′s history to chart for at least a year.

Rounding out the rest of the Top 10 were have Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake‘sHoly Grail at #6; Swedish DJ Avicii earns his first Top 10 hit with “Wake Me Up!” rising from #11 to #7, and Capital CitiesSafe and Sound jumps two spots from #2 to #8.
