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.
