NEW YORK (Billboard) - The Black Eyed Peas held on to the top two spots on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for a second week on Thursday.

"I Gotta Feeling" led the field, while "Boom Boom Pow" followed at No. 2. The latter track ruled the Hot 100 for 12 weeks until "I Gotta Feeling" replaced it last week. Both come from the hip-hop act's album "The E.N.D.," which fell to No. 5 on the Billboard 200 Wednesday after three weeks at No. 1.

Elsewhere on the Hot 100, Drake's "Best I Ever Had" stayed at No. 3, Keri Hilson's "Knock You Down," featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo, at No. 4, and Lady GaGa's "LoveGame" at No. 5.

Sean Kingston's "Fire Burning" rose one to No. 6, and Jeremih's "Birthday Sex" was also up one, to No. 7. Pitbull's "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)" fell two to No. 8, and Taylor Swift's "You Belong With Me" rose two to No. 9. Linkin Park's "New Divide" slipped one to No. 10.

"Bubbly" singer Colbie Caillat claimed the top debut at No. 12 with "Falling For You," the first song from her forthcoming album "Breakthrough," due August 25.

"That's Not My Name" by the Ting Tings re-entered the Hot 100 at a new high of No. 45, bolstered by increased radio airplay and digital downloads.

On Billboard's Hot Digital Songs chart, Michael Jackson held down five of the top 10 slots, led by "Man in the Mirror" at No. 2. The Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" was No. 1.
