(AllHipHop News) Pharrell Williams' domination of 2014 has not ended. The Neptunes member adds another major accomplishment for the year. Skateboard P's smash hit "Happy" has become the most downloaded track ever in the United Kingdom.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, "Happy" was purchased over 1.6 million times in Great Britain. The G I R L single overtook Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" which happened to feature an appearance and production by Pharrell as well.
"I would just like to say thank you, first and foremost, to the people, because the charts are determined by them. I have a lot to be thankful for because they’ve chosen these things and it’s resulted in 'Happy' being what it’s become," stated Pharrell.
The Virginia producer/performer now has three songs in Britain's Official Charts Company's all time top ten. Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" featuring Pharrell sits in the number 6 spot on the list.
"Happy" was an unstoppable force in the States too. It maintained the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for ten straight weeks and has sold 6 million copies in America. The track also reached #1 in over two dozen countries around the world.
