BEP200.jpgMANHATTAN, New York (X17online) - The Black Eyed Peas' single I Gotta Feeling hit the six million mark in digital downloads.

Will.i.am had this to say about the record-breaking milestone:

    "We came out in '98 and our career, if you would look at it on chart, there's no dips in it," he said in a phone interview Thursday. For our career to still be healthy and vibrant and doing things like 6 million downloads, it's pretty significant."

As for why the song remained No. 1 for 14 weeks, Will.i.am gave this explanation:

    "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 all right."

The Black Eyed Peas next album, The Beginning, is due out at the end of this year.
