#1 Song of the Week

This weeks spotlight is on the Billboard Hot 100 chart topper currently sitting at #1, "Somebody I Used To Know" by Gotye w/Kimbra
The week of May 12th 2012 will be the 4th consecutive week at #1 for the quirky song that also spent a week at the top of the UK Top 40 in February of this year.

This week (May 12th) this song becomes the first in one digital history to sell more than 400,000 copies in weekly sales 3 times.  It sold 414,000 this week which is down from 463,000 last week and 542,000 2 weeks ago.  In setting this record it passed 3 other songs that sold over 400,000 twice: "Right Round" by Flo Rida, "Grenade" by Bruno Mars and "Born This Way" by lady Gaga.
