The Black Eyed Peas Are the New Boyz II Men

If you've either been: (a) within earshot of a radio in the last three months, or (b) paying attention to our Song of the Summer countdowns each and every Friday, you'll know that this has been the summer of the Black Eyed Peas. In fact, they just broke a Billboard record formerly held by Boyz II Men for the most consecutive weeks a band has held onto the No. 1 spot on the singles chart. Between "Boom Boom Pow" and "I Gotta Feeling," the band has had the most popular song in all the land for the last seventeen weeks. Wowzers. [Newsroom/MTV ]
