London (ANI): American hip-hop group the the black eyed peas have broken a US chart record by notching up 20 weeks on top of the singles countdown. The band"s song 'I Gotta Feeling" has claimed an eighth week at number one, following 12 weeks at pole position with 'Boom Boom Pow".

The record beats Usher, who held the number one spot for 19 weeks in 2004 with Yeah! and Burn. “It is amazing to know that these songs have connected with so many people," the BBC quoted the black eyed peas frontwoman Fergie as saying.

She also added that it was what had “kept them alive for so long". “With this kind of success your ego wants to take all the credit," fellow the black eyed peas member Will.i.am said. “But your heart reminds your soul that it was your heart that had you slaving and creating in the studio making the music. “In the fight between heart and ego my heart always wins," he added.
