NEW YORK, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- It's tough to win the triple crown but DAS Communications just hit the trifecta with three top 10 songs in the U.K. this week. DAS newcomer, Pixie Lott, debuted in the #1 spot, knocking off DAS superstar artist The Black Eyed Peas who held the #1 in the U.K. for two of the last three weeks. The Black Eyed Peas are #2 this week and the third DAS artist, Australia superstars The Veronicas, held onto the #9 spot. This is a rare accomplishment and it's the first time it has happened to a U.S. based management company. "In these troubling times globally, it's gratifying that we are still delivering hits, breaking new artists and finding unique and creative ways of reaching the public," says DAS CEO David Sonenberg. Meanwhile, DAS artist The Black Eyed Peas continue to dominate all charts on a worldwide basis. "Boom Boom Pow," the lead single from their new album The E.N.D., has grabbed the #1 slot on the European Hot 100, while continuing to hold the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for 11 weeks and selling in excess of 2.7 million singles. In the U.S., the Peas are dominating the iTunes single sales charts holding the #1 and #2 positions this week. Their new album is set to give them their first #1 album in the U.S., and also #1 debuts in Canada, Japan, Australia, France, New Zealand, and Austrian Album Charts. The E.N.D will also land in the top ten of 10 other countries this week. The Peas recently broke the record for a group having the most Top 40 radio hits of any artist this decade, scoring 12 top 40 hits, besting the Backstreet Boys and Nickelback. This is in addition to the 6 Top 40 hits Fergie scored on her debut solo album, The Dutchess. DAS scored big last year with almost 7 million in sales from Fergie's debut solo album THE DUTCHESS, plus a U.S. Gold album and 3 hits from Natasha Bedingfield's POCKETFUL OF SUNSHINE. DAS clients have sold in excess of 300 million records to date. DAS has launched the careers of MEAT LOAF, the SPIN DOCTORS, JOAN OSBORNE, the FUGEES, WYCLEF JEAN, LAURYN HILL, THE BLACK EYED PEAS, FERGIE, JOHN LEGEND AND THE VERONICAS. Seven of DAS' clients have sold over 10 million albums including the record breaking Meat Loaf debut album, BAT OUT OF HELL which has sold 43 million units worldwide. DAS produced the Academy Award winning feature documentary WHEN WE WERE KINGS and its film SOUL POWER will be released theatrically in July.
