Black Eyed Peas hit "I Gotta Feeling" most downloaded track
The Black Eyed Peas have broken music history -- their smash hit "I Gotta Feeling" has been downloaded more than six million times.
Will.I.Am thinks the massive party anthem hit home with fans because of its uplifting message.
"It's a positive, feel good song at the time where there's question marks and uncertainty. People want to be reminded that it's going to be alright."
The BEP frontman said he appreciated the band's fans have stuck by them for more than a decade.
"We came out in '98 and our career - if you would look at it on chart, there's no dips in it. For our career to still be healthy and vibrant and doing things like six million downloads, it's pretty significant," MTV UK reports.
"That means that they chose to support the group, support the art. God knows how many people listened to it online and didn't buy it, downloaded it for free and didn't think about it."
