Can't get the ultra-smooth Robin Thicke single "Blurred Lines" out of your head this summer? There's a good reason.

The song doesn't just seem like it's everywhere, it actually is. "Blurred Lines" has reached the largest radio audience of all-time, shattering the previous high of 188.8 million listeners with a whopping 242.65 million pairs of ears reached, according to a release from Interscope Records. The tune has sat atop Billboard's Hot 100 for seven consecutive weeks.

Not tired of it yet? OK fine. Watch the mesmerizing, hashtagged video, featuring T.I. and a cat-who-ate-the-canary-faced Pharrell, which has racked up more than 108 million YouTube plays.

Still get can't enough? Enjoy the Bill Clinton version of "Blurred Lines" like pretty much everybody else on your Facebook feed.
