Artist Stats: "Thrift Shop" makes digital history
Feb 7th 2013, 00:34


"Thrift Shop" by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Wanz holds at #1 for the third week. It's #1 on Hot Digital Songs for the fourth week. Impressively, the song's sales have increased in each of those four weeks, from 236K to 279K in its first week at #1, then to 341K, then to 357K, and now to 381K. It's the first song in the nine-year history of the Hot Digital Songs chart to post a sales increase in each of its first four weeks at #1.
The genial song about bargain-hunting has a shot at another sales record. This is the fourth time the song's weekly sales have topped 300K. (It first reached that mark in the week that included Christmas). The song may match fun's record for the most weeks above 300K in weekly sales. "We Are Young" (featuring Janelle Monae) topped that mark seven times.
The song is set to cross the 3 million mark next week.
