Black Eyed Peas Overthrow Flo Rida for Top Digital Song

Despite currently sitting at Number 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the Black Eyed Peas‘ radio hit ‘I Gotta Feeling’ has patiently become the top-selling digital song in history, usurping the title from Flo Rida‘s catchy Apple Bottom Jeans shout-out, ‘Low.’

In 2003 Nielsen SoundScan began culminating digital MP3 downloads, and when Flo Rida’s debut single — co-written and featuring fellow Orange State rapper T-Pain — hit the airwaves in late 2007, it took it nearly two years to become the first song to amass more than five million downloads ever in digital music history. Sure, the feat didn’t happen over night, but songs could barely pass the 2 million download mark before 2007.

While the Black Eyed Peas have surpassed Flo Rida, the rapper still holds the top-selling digital download title of the last decade. But, the Black Eyed Peas seem to have the ’10s on current lockdown. ‘I Gotta a Feeling” with its 5,561,000 holds the top-digital download thrown, while sister hit ‘Boom Boom Pow’ has amassed 5,298,000 downloads. While the two songs, off the Peas’ latest album ‘The E.N.D.,’ continue to garner heavy radio rotation, plus the added punch from their current Rolling Stone cover story, expect the hip-pop group’s digital download numbers to go up even more. Regardless, the results peg the hip-hop genre as king of the top downloaded track.
