The Black Eyed Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow” has been sitting comfortably at the No. 1 spot of the US singles charts for the last 6 weeks. Taking a look at the iTunes Top 100 (it’s still at No. 1), I don’t think it has anything to worry about anytime soon. The only real competition it has is the next American Idol. This Wednesday, Adam Lambert or Kris Allen will be crowned this year’s Idol and their Idol winning song will sell loads this week and next. Taking into account that “Boom Boom Pow” was a bought 215,000 times in the last week alone, I’m guessing a Lambert or Allen win will knock it out of the number spot on iTunes. Though that’s hardly a threat to “Boom Boom Pow” and its nearly secured No. 1 spot.
To be perfectly honest, the only valid threat it has is the Black Eyed Peas’ follow-up single, “Imma Be.” The new single was made available through UK iTunes as a free download when you pre-order BEP’s upcoming album, The E.N.D. With proper radio promo, I predict a high first digital sales week for “Imma Be” when their new album is available on iTunes (June 9th). Maybe high enough to knock “Boom Boom Pow” out of the penthouse. Listen to “Imma Be” after the jump
