THE BLACK EYED PEAS have tied Usher’s record for the longest successive stay at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart with 19 consecutive weeks at #1. “I Gotta Feeling” holds at #1 for 7 weeks and “Boom Boom Pow” spent 12 weeks at #1. This is the longest consecutive stay by a duo or group in the Billboard charts 51 year history. The Black Eyed Peas bypassed Boyz II Men’s 1994 record for successive stay at the top by a duo or group when they hit 17 weeks at #1. The Black Eyed Peas are also the first duo or group with consecutive #1’s on the Mainstream Top 40 chart since Maroon 5 in 2004.

“I Gotta Feeling,” the second single from The E.N.D., sits at #1 on the Top 40 chart. Since its release seven weeks ago, “I Gotta Feeling” has sold over 1.95 million digital downloads. Their first single “Boom Boom Pow” spent 6 weeks at #1 on the Top 40 chart and has sold over 3.8 million digital downloads. “Boom Boom Pow” is the # 1 track on the Nielsen SoundScan’s Year To Date digital tracks chart for 2009.

THE E.N.D., the fifth release from the three-time Grammy Award winning, multi-platinum Interscope recording artist, The Black Eyed Peas, entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at #1 with the group’s highest debut of their career with 304,109 in first-week sales. The E.N.D. is currently #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.

Rolling Stone calls THE E.N.D., “the best thing the Black Eyed Peas have ever recorded” and Entertainment Weekly raves, “pure Top 40 nirvana.” USA Today confirms “it’s booming, electrified pop with plenty of Pow.” Rolling Stone calls “Boom Boom Pow” one of the best summer jams of the past 20 years and People lists “I Gotta Feeling” as their summer pick.

The E.N.D. is The Black Eyed Peas follow up to their 2005 release Monkey Business. With worldwide sales of more than 9 million copies, Monkey Business generated Grammy Awards for “Don’t Phunk With My Heart” and “My Humps.” The Black Eyed Peas have sold over 27 million cds worldwide.

AP REPORT–Nielsen SoundScan says 800,000 copies of Michael Jackson albums were bought in the U.S. last week — nearly double his sales from the previous week.

Jackson is claiming the entire Top 10 roster on the Top Catalog Album chart this week. His “Number Ones” collection is the top seller, followed by “Thriller.” Solo albums occupy every position but No. 7, where the Jackson 5’s “Ultimate Collection” album resides.

Data from the week ending Sunday — the first full week since Jackson’s June 25 death — shows physical albums accounted for 80 percent of his sales.

On Billboard’s Hot Digital Songs chart, Jackson holds five out of the top 10 slots, with “Man in the Mirror” leading as his top-selling digital download song of the week.

Four Jackson CDs also are in the top 10 albums sold on iTunes, and five of the top 10 singles for the week ending Monday.
