Black Eyed Peas recently performed their first single from their upcoming fourth studio album The E.N.D.
The single sold 465,000 downloads in its first week of digital release, the third largest number of download-sales in a single-week overall, and the largest single-week and debut-download totals by a group in the history of digital-download sales tracking, reaching #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Pop 100. It became the group’s first U.S. #1. It sold another 335,000 downloads in the U.S. in its second week of release, 259,000 in its third week, 226,000 in its fourth, and 212,000 in its fifth, bringing its total U.S. sales to 1,501,000 in five weeks. This made it the second-fastest song to hit the one million mark in paid downloads, the first being Flo Rida‘s “Right Round“, which did it in two weeks.
Thanks to its digital downloads and massive radio airplay, the song has topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for four consecutive weeks, making it the Black Eyed Peas’ most successful U.S. single to date.
