The U.K. benefit single for Haiti organized by Simon Cowell has sold more than 200,000 in two days, according to the Official Charts Company (OCC).

The cover of REM's "Everybody Hurts" for the Helping Haiti release from Sony Music features Alexandra Burke, Mariah Carey, Cheryl Cole, James Morrison, JLS, Kylie Minogue, Leona Lewis, Michael Buble, Mika, Robbie Williams, Rod Stewart, Susan Boyle and Take That.

The OCC said the track has become the fastest-selling charity single of the last decade. It is also set to have one of the biggest first week sales of any single since 2000.

Proceeds from the single will be divided between the Disasters Emergency Committee and the Sun newspaper's Helping Haiti Appeal.
