As the iconic duo announce their split after nearly 30 years together, we reveal the numbers behind their most successful hits.

After 28 years of dancefloor-filling hits, this week Daft Punk sadly announced their split.

Formed in 1993, the French duo (real names Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo) were one of the most influential groups in dance music history, loved internationally for their clever and catchy multi-genre-infusing tracks.

To celebrate their success over the last three decades and say au revoir to one of music's most iconic acts, we've compiled Daft Punk's biggest hits on the UK's Official Chart. First, a rundown of the Top 5...

5. Around The World
Official Chart peak: 5
UK chart sales: 478,000

Taking you on a musical odyssey (its full-length version clocking in at 7 mins) armed with just three words and some seriously good instrumentation, Around The World is a perfect display of Daft Punk's talent at production, and lands at Number 5 with 478,000 chart sales to date in the UK, including 24m streams.

4. One More Time
Official Chart peak: 2
UK chart sales: 806,000

An all-time classic truly deserving of it's place in the Top 5, One More Time's ability to get even the most reluctant of dancers moving. It's Daft Punk's fourth biggest song in the UK with over 806,000 chart sales - it also takes the most first week paid-for sales, with 59,000 copies sold on its week of release in 2000.

3. I Feel It Coming (with The Weeknd)
Official Chart peak: 9
UK chart sales: 1.11 million

One of two collaborations with The Weeknd for his 2019 Starboy album, I Feel It Coming is a slinky slow jam with more than a hint of Michael Jackson about it. Clocking 102.8m streams in the UK alone, it's Daft Punk's second most streamed song and third most popular UK hit overall.

2. Starboy (with The Weeknd)
Official Chart peak: 2
UK chart sales: 1.9 million

Bookending The Weeknd's album of the same name, album opener Starboy - a menacing meditation on dark side of fame and celebrity offset by Daft Punk's stuttering electropop production - is by far Daft Punk's most streamed track, with a mighty 184.6 million plays.

1. Get Lucky ft. Pharrell Williams
Official Chart peak: 1
UK chart sales: 2.25 million

Daft Punk's most successful hit in the UK is 2013's Get Lucky, a disco-infused collaboration with Pharrell that trailed their fourth (and now final) studio album Random Access Memories. Perhaps surprisingly, it's their only track to reach Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart, with a mega 2.25 million chart sales.

With an immediately recognisable guitar riff courtesy of Nile Rodgers, and the ultimate earworm chorus, Get Lucky is the 45th best-selling single of all time in the UK, with 1.48m paid-for sales. It's also the pair's third most-streamed track with over 83 million plays since records began in 2014.

Daft Punk's Top 10 songs on the Official Chart
POS TITLE ARTIST PEAK
1 GET LUCKY DAFT PUNK FT PHARRELL WILLIAMS 1
2 STARBOY WEEKND FT DAFT PUNK 2
3 I FEEL IT COMING WEEKND FT DAFT PUNK 9
4 ONE MORE TIME DAFT PUNK 2
5 AROUND THE WORLD DAFT PUNK 5
6 HARDER BETTER FASTER STRONGER DAFT PUNK 25
7 LOSE YOURSELF TO DANCE DAFT PUNK FT PHARRELL WILLIAMS 49
8 DA FUNK DAFT PUNK 7
9 DIGITAL LOVE DAFT PUNK 14
10 INSTANT CRUSH DAFT PUNK/JULIAN CASABLANCAS N/A

Just to add: 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger' was certified Gold (400k) in June 2020 and 'Lose Yourself to Dance' was certified Silver (200k) two months after.

'Da Funk' sold 90k in 1997, 10k less than 'Around the World'. I don't know what its popularity is like but I wouldn't be surprised to see a Silver certification appear some time soon.

'Instant Crush' managing to outsell a few of their charting hits, not really surprised by that but I am surprised at the extent of its popularity based on worldwide Spotify streams: 300m! That's more than 'One More Time', although that is out-streaming it on a daily basis now.

Some weekly averages worked out from their most recent certification and the totals given today:

1.1k Around the World
1.8k One More Time
2.4k Get Lucky

The OCC also said this in a recent article:

QUOTE
The French producer duo's biggest single in the UK is 2013 Number 1 smash Get Lucky ft. Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers, which is BRIT Certified 3x Platinum and the 45th bestselling single in UK chart history with paid-for sales of 1.48 million.

Get Lucky is taken from their album Random Access Memories which won three GRAMMY Awards including Album of the Year. Random Access Memories reached Number 1 on the UK's Official Albums Chart and has sold over 500,000 copies in the UK.
