July 28 (UPI) -- Nothing spurs album sales like a little controversy.

"Blurred Lines," the catchy Robin Thicke hit criticized for its "rapey" lyrics, has been storming up the charts for months, spawning a gender-swap parody video and fake Bill Clinton sing-alongs. Now, the summer hit has set a record for the largest-ever radio audience.

According to a press release from Interscope Records, Thicke's label, the track has reached more than 242.65 million radio listeners since its release, breaking the previous record of 188.8 million.

"Blurred Lines" has also held Billboard's no. 1 slot longer than any other song this year.
