Black Eyed Peas’ Song Earns Six Million Digital Downloads
The Black Eyed Peas hit another milestone in their careers this week when their single, ‘I Gotta Feeling,’ became the first song in history to reach the six million digital download mark.
The single, from their 2009 album, ‘The E.N.D.’ remained at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts for 14 weeks in a row, stealing the top spot from their previous single, ‘Boom Boom Pow.’ The song now holds the title of best-selling digital download of all time.
“We came out in ’98 and our career, if you would look at it on a chart, there’s no dips in it,” will.i.am. told the AP in a phone interview on Thursday (July 29). “For our career to still be healthy and vibrant and doing things like 6 million downloads, it’s pretty significant.”
The Peas celebrated their achievement on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ on Friday, July 30, where they performed the hit single and announced the title of their upcoming album. ‘The Beginning’ is tentatively slated to drop at the end of 2010. “It symbolizes growth, new beginnings and starts, fresh new perspective,” will.i.am explained.
