One Republic's "Apologize" hits 3 million

The 3rd hit single from Timbaland’s platinum album, Shock Value, as well as the first single from their own album, Dreaming Out Loud, One Republic’s “Apologize” has become only the second song in history to score 3,000,000 digital song downloads, following “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” from Soulja Boy. “This is yet another testament to a great song finding its audience through all kinds of outlets,” commented Steve Berman, president of Interscope Geffen A&M. “ After the record breaking success we had with ‘Crank That’, repeating it with ‘Apologize’ is a really fantastic start to 2008 for us.”

After 27 weeks on the Billboard Hot Digital Tracks chart, “Apologize” is still in the Top 15, receiving nearly 62,000 downloads this past week. The track has also zoomed past the 1,000,000 mark in ringtone downloads.

Also this week, One Republic’s newest single, “Stop And Stare,” has cracked the Hot Digital Tracks Top 10. With the most recent week’s sales of 67,000 downloads, “Stop And Stare” has quickly reached 416,000 total downloads. Congratulations to One Republic who more than deserve all of their current success.


  1. How do people listen to that Soulja Boy garbage ? Something is wrong in this world.

  2. Congrats to them & Tim! apologize was damn successfull in Germany.

    btw. I just heard the new track "Karma" by NLT. Does anybody know if Tim (or someone of his camp)was involved in this?

  3. Honest, i didn't think apologize would be so successful! like i knew it was a number one for Timbo but i guess i was just expecting another single.. such as MISCOMMUNICATION.. how that poxed up soulja boy song can get the same amount of d/l's is frickin beyond me..
