Robin Thicke marks several career milestones, thanks to his latest hit "Blurred Lines." 

The song, featuring Pharrell and T.I. , has just jumped to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 ,  marking his first-ever #1 on that legendary chart.  In addition, the song becomes the singer's first ever to hit one million downloads.

While this is Robin's first Hot 100 #1, it's T.I.'s fourth, and the rapper's first since his collabo with Rihanna , "Live Your Life."  It's Pharrell's third as an artist: his last one was "Money Maker," his 2006 team-up with Ludacris .

Interestingly, Robin's not the only one in the Thicke family to score a big 10 pop hit.  His mom, actress Gloria Loring , hit #2 in 1986 with the song "Friends & Lovers," a duet with Carl Anderson .

"Blurred Lines," whose success partly may be due to a Vevo-only video that stars gorgeous topless models, is the title track from Robin's new album, due next month.

Elsewhere on the chart, Miley Cyrus ' controversial new single "We Can't Stop" debuts at #11 on the Hot 100.  The song sold 214,00 downloads in its first week, marking Miley's best sales week since 2009, when "Party in the U.S.A." was huge.
