BLACK EYED PEAS "BOOM BOOM POW"
SETS NEW DIGITAL DOWNLOAD RECORD

Week Ending May 31, 2009: “Boom Boom Pow” Sets Digital Record

Black Eyed Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow” becomes the first song in digital history to spend its first nine weeks of release as the most-downloaded song in America.

This tops a record set in 2005 by “Candy Shop” by 50 Cent featuring Olivia, which spent its first eight weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Digital Songs chart.

“Boom Boom Pow” sold 220,000 downloads this week, bringing its total to 2,381,000. This week, it surpasses “My Humps” as the Peas’ song with the most paid downloads. (“My Humps” has sold 2,203,000 digital copies since its release in 2005.)

“Candy Shop” was the lead single from 50 Cent’s The Massacre album, which sold a staggering 1,912,000 copies in its first two weeks. No one expects a tally remotely like that for Black Eyed Peas’ album, The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies), which is due in stores next week. But it is on target to become the group’s first #1 album. The group’s last album, Monkey Business, debuted and peaked at #2 in June 2005.

WHITNEY HOUSTON:
NEW ALBUM DUE SEPTEMBER

Whitney Houston

The date for Whitney Houston’s comeback has been set.

Arista Records says her long-awaited album will be released Sept. 1. Houston hasn’t released a CD in seven years.

So far, there’s no word on a title for the album.

The 45-year-old superstar is one of the best-selling artists of all-time, but in recent years, she’s been defined more by drug problems, marital woes and erratic behavior than by her Grammy-winning voice.

But lately, Houston has appeared to return to her pop princess form. She wowed the crowd when she performed at her mentor Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party in February.

MOS DEF "SAY YOU WILL" LIVE @ BLUE NOTE NYC 09

Mos Def

Mos Def  ”Say You Will”

Back in January Mos Def did a string of shows at NYC legendary jazz club The Blue Note. Here we have Mighty Mos’ 12 minute rendition of Kanye West’s “Say You Will” with the help of RCDC Experiment (Robert Glasper, Chris Dave, Casey Benjamin & Derrick Hodge).

Apparently Mos also adds verses from “U R The One” into his interpretation of Yeezy’s track.

This one runs 12 minutes of live audio, but it’s worth every second of your time.

This is not your average Mos Def Hip-Hop track….. but give it a chance it’s still ill
