Billboard has finally announced what we all knew to be true. "Blurred Lines," Robin Thicke's bouncy, occasionally controversial jam about men and women, is officially "Song of the Summer" -- a title previously bestowed upon Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," Rihanna's "Umbrella" and Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl."

Thicke is the first male to claim "Song of the Summer" in nearly a decade -- Usher won in 2004 with "Confessions Part II."

Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive" came in at No. 2, Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" came in at No. 3, while Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" came in at No. 4.
