By 2005, the Peas were still able to pull singles registering 500,000 sales, as was the case with both Don’t Phunk with My Heart and My Humps. Singles from The E.N.D. look like bad performers with under 600,000 sales combined. However, this is down to the physical market’s collapse. Indeed, they were outstanding sellers in digital format as we will see…

  1. Thank You for this. This is one of the ones I have been looking forward to the most and as I expected, their numbers are very impressive. Especially for the Elephunk/Monkey Business/END eras.

    This is kinda OT, but after seeing those massive numbers for I Gotta Feeling I started wondering, were there any other songs bigger than it in digital single sales?

  2. Thank You. This is one that I’ve been looking forward to the most. The had so much success with Elephunk, Monkey Business, and The End.

    Also Kinda OT, but I Gotta Feeling’s massive numbers have me wondering, were there any other songs that outside it in digital single sales?

    1. Hi Leon!

      I Gotta Feeling tops Uptown Funk, Poker Face, Love The Way You Lie, Someone Like You, Just Dance etc. It is tied with Rolling In The Deep and outperformed by Moves Like Jagger which stands at nearly 20 million.

      Obviously, all figures were estimated at distinct moments and the accuracy of formulas (most notably Asian sales and ringtones) have been increased over the last months, so possibly one or two of those songs would be just ahead if updated now. Let’s just say it belongs to an elite of about 10 songs that are the very top selling digital tunes ever.

  3. Your data is amazing and impressively precise. I would like to know if you could post the Popularity Concept of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Radiohead.

  4. Fantastic analysis. Thanks for providing the list of songs and albums, besides CPS all time artists.
    One comment: there’s a mistake in the “achievements” page where it says the streak of 26 consecutive weeks at #1 in Billboard Hot 100. It’s only because of 2 songs (Boom Boom Pow and I Gotta Feeling). “Meet Me Halfway” never reached the top position.

  5. I have guessed right that Black Eyes Peas were next. Love the band and their songs. I hope they release an album again. I really love their songs.

    And wow, My Heart Will Go On is the biggest song. Celibe Dion rules! 🙂
