From Hits Daily Double:

TIK TOK HITS THE TOP: Ke$ha appeared to be the big winner of all those iTunes gift cards as her single, "TiK ToK," sold 610k downloads this week, the largest seven-day total for a female ever and the second-largest in history, next to Flo Rida's "Right Round," on which she also guested., bringing its cumulative tally to more than 2 million. The RCA Records pop phenom's debut album, Animal, hits stores on Tuesday (1/5).

Now if you're wondering what this has to do with the title of this post, I shall explain:

Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald is the songwriter/producer responsible for the two aforementioned record breaking songs, with assistance from his understudy/co-producer Benny Blanco on "Tik Tok".

I should also mention that prior to "Right Round" and "Tik Tok", Luke produced Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl" and "Hold N Cold". Both of which went #1 in almost every country in the world last year.

His royalty cheques would be unfathomable. All from playing guitar on Saturday Night Life. Whoa.
