Black Eyed Peas break digital sales record

LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - The Black Eyed Peas continue to steamroll their way into the record books. This week the group’s “I Gotta Feeling” surpassed Flo Rida’s “Low” as the best-selling digital song of all time, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

“Feeling,” which spent 14 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart last year, has now sold 5.56 million digital downloads, ahead of “Low‘s” 5.54 million. The latter had been the biggest-selling song since March 2008, when it trumped Soulja Boy Tell‘em’s 2007 hit “Crank That.”

The Peas own two out of the top five best-selling digital songs in history. The group’s other ubiquitous 2009 hit, “Boom Boom Pow,” is in fourth place with 5.3 million. Behind Flo Rida is Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance” (No. 3 with 5.36 million) and rounding out the top five is Gaga again with “Poker Face” (5.13 million).

SoundScan began tracking digital song sales in July of 2003, a little more than two months after Apple launched its popular iTunes Store.
