The Black Eyed Peas made history after ‘Boom Boom Pow’ and ‘I Gotta Feeling’ topped Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for 20 consecutive weeks at #1. ‘I Gotta Feeling’ took the top slot for eight weeks, while ‘Boom Boom Pow’ spent the prior 12 weeks at #1. This is the longest consecutive stay for an artist in the Billboard chart’s 51 year history.
“With this kind of success your ego wants to take all the credit but your heart reminds your soul that it was your heart that had you slaving and creating in the studio making the music; breaking through comfort zones and tradition. In the fight between heart and ego my heart always wins,” said will.i.am.
Fergie added, “Without everyone doing their part, the stars never would have aligned. This was a group effort, thank you to everyone who helped to keep these songs on top.”
