'We Can't Stop' debuts at #3 on the Digital Songs chart!


Over on the Digital Songs chart, Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," featuring T.I. and Pharrell, holds at No. 1, selling 315,000 downloads for the week (up 38%). It's the first song in nine weeks to sell more than 300,000. The last to do so was Bruno Mars' "When I Was Your Man," which rode a discounted 69-cent sale price in the iTunes Store to a big 340,000 download week at No. 1 (on the chart dated April 20).

Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" profits from the duo's CMT Music Awards exposure, as it jumps 3-2 with 225,000 (up 15%), its second-best sales week yet. Its biggest week was nine weeks ago, when a just-released pop-friendly remix of the song with Nelly helped boost its sales to 248,000.

Total download sales for "Cruise" jump past the 4 million mark this week as well, as its cumulative total now stands at 4.1 million. It's only the fifth country song to sell more than 4 million downloads, following Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" (6.1 million), Taylor Swift's "Love Story" (5.6 million), the Band Perry's "If I Die Young" (4.6 million) and Swift's "You Belong With Me" (4.3 million).

Right behind "Cruise" on this week's Digital Songs chart is Miley Cyrus' new "We Can't Stop," which bows at No. 3 with 214,000. It's her best sales week for a song since Christmas of 2009, when "Party in the U.S.A." sold 285,000 downloads.

"We Can't Stop" is the first single from Cyrus' forthcoming studio album, due out later this year. To compare, her last album's first single (and title track), "Can't Be Tamed," debuted on the Digital Songs chart at No. 4 with 191,000 downloads back in 2010.
