Black Eyed Peas Shatter Record Books !!!

THE E.N.D.

THE E.N.D.

Big ups to the Black Eyed Peas for having the LONGEST  stay at the { numero uno} #1 spot on the  Billboard Hot 100 chart … 20  CONSECUTIVE WEEKS ! “Boom Boom Pow” &” I Gotta Feeling” have set the precedent really really high for any other groups out there . The 5th studio album THE E.N.D., hit the  Billboard Top 200 chart at #1 with the group’s highest debut of their career with 304,109 in first-week sales. Right now THE E.N.D is sitting at the #3 spot on the charts. Since it’s release, “I got a feeling” has sold over 2 million digital downloads, and the first single “Boom Boom Pow” has sold over 3.8  million digital downloads. 

So what makes a group like the Black Eyed Peas so successful ? I think it is their diversity and passion for their music. When you look at them as far as image is concerned, they really are a mix of different races and ethnic groups. They each are allowed to have their own individual style which I think is VERY important in a group. You don’t remember the group where they all look, dress, & dance the same …cough cough. Those groups usually flop and don’t make it. They are each allowed to be who they are, and to me that’s what sets them apart. Second, they love their craft. They really have been in the game for a while and I think for a while … unnoticed. But like passionate driven people, they kept at it, and their hard work is paying off. A real artist is some one who stays in the studio not making a dime, they do it just because they love music. Money is a given attribute to a real artist. Those are the people you will see me writing about. Those are the ones I respect. 

So congrats to the Black Eyed Peas again for making MUSIC HISTORY !!!!!
