Did you hear the Black Eyed Peas singles ‘Boom Boom Pow’ and ‘I Gotta Feeling’?
You did, didn’t you. You couldn’t have escaped it; its everywhere – on the radio, in the club, in your living room, on your girlfriends iPod.
These two singles are also on the billboard charts. At the very top, no less. ‘I Gotta Feeling‘ has spent a whopping 12 weeks on top of the billboard, while ‘Boom Boom Pow’ has spent a total of 8 weeks at the top.
With success like this, you can agree that the Black Eyed Peas will soon be one of the most successful acts in hip hop, if not all of music.
All their albums have gone multi platinum. Their songs have become part of our pop culture – just listen to ‘My Humps‘ or ‘Don’t Funk With My Heart‘.
Not surprisingly, ‘I Gotta Feeling‘ and ‘Boom Boom Pow‘ have got a whopping 6 million digital downloads alone.
This is what Will.I.Am had to say in a statement about their success:
“With this kind of success your ego wants to take all the credit but your heart reminds your soul that it was your heart that had you slaving and creating in the studio making the music; breaking through comfort zones and tradition. In the fight between heart and ego my heart always wins”
The B.E.P are fast becoming the music legends of this generation. They’re THE definite hip hop band to play at the club and parties, and I won’t be surprised if they end up breaking all billboard records in their lifetime.
