BLACK EYED PEAS STREAK TO GROUP RECORD
The Black Eyed Peas hold at No. 1 for a 17th straight week on the Billboard Hot 100 (12 for “Boom Boom Pow” and five for “I Gotta Feeling”), setting the record for the longest successive stay at the top by a duo or group in the chart’s 51-year history. The Peas bypass Boyz II Men, which had two different runs of 16 weeks. The first occurred in 1994 when “I’ll Make Love to You” held for 14 weeks and “On Bended Knee” for two frames. The other was in 1995/96 with “One Sweet Day,” their collaboration with Mariah Carey.
