CSPC: Black Eyed Peas Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 3

33 million Spotify streams plus 153 million YouTube views would make a song one of the biggest streaming tunes of many major artists. Those figures, realized by Imma Be, are only good enough to make it the 5th biggest song from The E.N.D. album. This perfectly summarizes the amazing strength of this album. Rock That Body is similar to Imma Be while Meet Me Halfway is twice as big. These totals are surpassed by Boom Boom Pow’s 89 million Spotify / 339 million Youtube plays. Head and shoulders above the rest is I Gotta Feeling which rides at 186 million streams on Spotify alone. Expectedly, The E.N.D. is the band’s biggest album on this format at 596,000 equivalent album sales.

The surprise comes from The Beginning. Already a very decent performer in download sales, it’s streams are very solid. Both The Time (Dirty Bit) and Just Can’t Get Enough break 100,000 equivalent album sales on their own. The additional songs push the total of the album to 300,000 units.

  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! 🙂
