It may be Valentines Day, but that hasn't stopped one heck of an emotional breakup song - Christina Perri's Jar of Hearts - from reaching a huge sales milestone in the UK.

The US singer-songwriter's debut single has hit the one million sales mark in the UK almost five years after its release, OfficialCharts.com can reveal.

Jar of Hearts - written by Perri about a difficult ending of a relationship - joins an elite club of just 165 songs that have sold over one million (not including streams) in UK chart history.

The track was a slow burner on the Official Singles Chart, initially entering the Top 100 at Number 90 in June 2011. Two months later, Jar of Hearts entered the Top 40 at 17 and hit its peak of Number 4 two weeks later.

Notably, Jar of Hearts is one of the few million-selling songs that failed to hit the top spot. Only three tracks that have hit the milestone have peaked lower: Snow Patrol's Chasing Cars (6), Journey's Don't Stop Believin' (6) and Bing Crosby's White Christmas (5). Robbie Williams' Angels is the only other million seller to also peak at Number 4, which it did in 1998.

Congratulations, Christina! Now, let's all have a singalong (and mini cry):

Good for her, lovely song! So this is a sales only million seller I guess, seeing as Sia's Chandelier peaked at #6 and is a million seller with streams included.

You're right about no overplay - in fact I'd never even heard of it until about two years ago, but I was familiar pretty much every other song that was a hit at the time. I can't recall hearing it on the radio on one single occasion in fact, same with Let Her Go.

Was on 850k at the beginning of the year, but that includes streams so 1m sales will be years and years away I'm afraid.

Definitely pure sales, as I had it on a combined 985k 16 months ago.

All of these million seller announcements have referred to pure sales haven't they? I suspect it will remain that way for a while yet.

Really? I heard it everywhere at the time, I was truly sick of it by the beginning of 2012.

Good song though, and impressive achievement!
