Black Eyed Peas match Mariah Carey record on chart

With its 14th week at the summit of Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart, the Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" matched Mariah Carey's 2005 hit "We Belong Together" for the longest No. 1 stay this decade.
The hip-hop band has now held firm at No. 1 for 26 straight weeks, with "Boom Boom Pow" preceding "Feeling" with a 12-week run, making the Peas the second act in the 51-year history of the Hot 100 to remain at No. 1 for half a calendar year or more. The other was Usher, who spent 28 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 in 2004 with four tracks.


As much as I like the song and the Black Eyed Peas I have to say that it is jus not right that "I Gotta Feeling" is about to make "We Belong Together" irrelevant. "WLB" is the better song but people apparently love the party track by the BEP.
