Happy by Pharrell Williams named biggest selling single of 2014
01 Oct 2014
Pharrell Williams’ Happy has been revealed as the biggest selling single of 2014 in the UK to date.
The Official Charts Company announced this year’s best-selling singles of the year so far with Pharrell Williams topping the list with his track Happy.
Despite being released in 2013, Happy is still a firm favourite in 2014 having amassed over 1.65million sales. The track has also topped the UK singles chart on three separate occasions.
Happy is Pharrell Williams third track to reach the million mark in sales in less than a year in the UK (previously Get Luky with Daft Punk and Blurred Lines with Robin Thicke and TI); an achievement that rivals only that of The Beatles.
The song was lifted from Pharrell Williams’ second studio album GIRL, which he is currently touring around Europe. Pharrell will visit London during October where he will play two shows at The O2 arena on 9 and 10. Tickets are now on sale.
Also making the list of best-selling singles is Rather Be by Clean Bandit featuring Jess Glynne and John Legend’s All Of Me while Sam Smith has two tracks in the Top 20 (Stay With Me and Money On My Mind).
