Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" Breaks Digital Download Record
The David Guetta-produced E.N.D. hit pushed the Peas past Flo Rida's previous milestone, giving them two of the Top 5 downloads, ever.
Last week, the Los Angeles Hip Hop/Electro Pop collective The Black Eyed Peas broke the digital sales record of a single with their 2009-2010 hit "I Gotta Feeling." The song, produced by David Guetta, appeared on the group's double-platinum Interscope Records album The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies).
According to Nielsen courtesy of Billboard, the veteran outfit surpassed Flo Rida's "Low" late last month, when "I Gotta Feeling" cleared 5,560,000 downloads, inching out the Sunshine State rapper by a present margin close to 20,000.
The Peas' have a second track, also from The E.N.D., that is presently among the all time Top 5 most digitally downloaded song purchases: "Boom Boom Pow." The research conducted is based on from 2003-to-present, when Nielsen began tracking iTunes sales.
