The Success Of 'Harlem Shake'

No doubt you've seen at least a few of the 'Harlem Shake' virals that have dominated the Internet over the past few weeks. But what has this new craze done for the success of the track?

A new article, written by Spin, examines the commercial success 'Harlem Shake' and its producer Baauer have had over the past few weeks.

After a #1 in the US singles charts and hitting #3 in the UK, the track has sold more in the last week than it ever did when it was originally released last May.

It also explains how American singles charts are not just judged on single sales, but also radio play, online streaming and of course Youtube plays.

Read the article here to see exactly how big the track has become of the last few weeks.
