And they said it couldn’t be done! The Black Eyed Peas’ record-breaking 26-week consecutive stay at the top of Billboard‘s Hot 100 singles chart — first with “Boom Boom Pow,” then with “I Gotta Feeling” — has come to an end at last. Say hello to the new No. 1 song in the country: Jay Sean’s “Down.”
The British singer‘s dance-pop single, which features a guest shot from his Cash Money labelmate Lil Wayne, has been climbing the charts since this summer, but I never expected it could pull this off. Hey, after the year they’ve had, I’m not sure I expected anyone to dethrone the Peas, ever.
Did you? What do you think of “Down,” anyway? Would you say it deserves to replace “Boom Boom Pow”/”I Gotta Feeling” as the biggest Auto-Tune jam of the moment? Check out Jay Sean’s smash after the jump to refresh your memory, then let us know.
