Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” Hits No. 1 On Billboard Hot 100


The song is everywhere you turn, and now it’s even at No. 1. Gotye‘s “Somebody That I Used To Know” has taken over the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

The track, featuring Kimbra, sold an astonishing 542,000 copies last week. The singer/songwriter can thank the exposure from a remake performed on last week’s Glee, American Idol season 11’s Elise Testone and Phillip Phillips dueting to the tune a day later, and his own performance of the track on this past weekend’s Saturday Night Live for the added boost.

Gotye’s “Somebody” ends the six-week reign of fun.‘s “We Are Young,” featuring Janelle Monae. That track slips to No. 2, but sales remain strong; “We Are Young” sold another 333,000 copies.
