LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - Another week, another turn at the top for the Black Eyed Peas.
The hip-hop group logged a 10th week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart with “I Gotta Feeling,” extending its unbroken reign to 22 weeks when its previous hit “Boom Boom Pow” is factored in.
The Peas become just the fourth act in the 51-year history of the Billboard Hot 100 to spend at least 10 weeks at No. 1 with multiple titles, joining Boyz II Men, Mariah Carey and Santana.
Elsewhere on the latest chart, “Down,” by Jay Sean featuring Lil Wayne, rose one place to No. 2, swapping places with Miley Cyrus’ “Party In the U.S.A.” Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody” rose two places to a new high of No. 4, while Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me” slipped one to No. 5.
Pearl Jam scored the top debut with “The Fixer,” which entered at No. 56. The Seattle rock band, prepping for the September 20 release of its new album “Backspacer,” was last in the Hot 100 in 2006 with “World Wide Suicide,” which debuted and peaked at No. 41.
A reunited Creed entered the chart at No. 73 with “Overcome,” seven years after its last Hot 100 appearance with “One Last Breath.” “Overcome” comes from Creed’s forthcoming album, “Full Circle.”
Rounding out the top 10: Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West’s “Run This Town” slipped one to No. 6; Drake’s “Best I Ever Had” held at No. 7; Keri Hilson featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo’s “Knock You Down” was also unchanged, at No. 8. Pitbull’s “Hotel Room Service” rose one to No. 9, flip-flopping with Cobra Starship featuring Leighton Meester’s “Good Girls Go Bad.”
