You have to hand it to the Black Eyed Peas, who after hugely successful solo outings by their members have returned to hold the top two spots on the Billboard Hot 100.
After eleven weeks at No. 1 with "Boom Boom Pow," the Black Eyed Peas are right behind themselves at No. 2 with the debut of "I Gotta Feeling" on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
With their No. 1 and No. 2 songs this week, the Peas are the first duo or group since OutKast to occupy the top two spots on the Hot 100. OutKast accomplished that feat with "Hey Ya!" and "The Way You Move" at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in the issue dated Feb. 4, 2004.
Will.i.am, Fergie and co. will be playing festivals in Europe all summer before heading out with U2 in the fall. Dates are here.
