The Black Eyed Peas have new bragging rights. Their inescapable hit “I Gotta Feeling” has become the best-selling song in digital history with 6 million downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It stayed at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 14 weeks last summer.
“We came out in ’98 and our career, if you would look at it on chart, there’s no dips in it,” will.i.am told AP. “For our career to still be healthy and vibrant and doing things like 6 million downloads, it’s pretty significant.”
The Peas, who performed Friday on “Good Morning America’s” Summer Concert Series, also made another big announcement. The follow-up to their double-platinum album The E.N.D., titled The Beginning, is almost finished and tentatively due at the end of the year. “It symbolizes growth, new beginnings and starts, fresh new perspective,” said will.i.am.
