 D4L set a digital download sales record this week, moving 175,000 copies of their hit "Laffy Taffy," smashing the old record of 80,500 set by Kanye West's "Gold Digger" last September.

This marks the second week in a row the single finished No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Digital Songs chart. It has sold a total of over 510,000 digital copies to date.
