We got a taste of what Fun. was about at this year’s SXSW. “We Are Young” featuring Janelle Monae is their anthemic hit, which made digital history by leading the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart for the sixth week. It becomes the first song to accumulate 300,000 or more in digital sales in six weeks.
According to Nielsen SoundScan, the song sold 390,000 downloads in the week of April 2 to April 8. With this latest sum, “Young” has sold at least 300,000 for six weeks straight. It has become the first song to ever reach such a total in each of the six weeks. The last song to rack in five weeks of 300,000-plus sales is Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie” featuring Rihanna in July/August 2010.
