BEP has had a truely "Sweet Day".

Black Eyed Peas' second single off of The End, "I Gotta Feeling", will soon begin its sixth week at the pole position of the US Hot 100. Those six weeks came directly after 12 weeks (that's 3 months, people!) of "Boom Boom Pow" rocking the top spot. This means we've had 18 weeks of Peas at the #1 position. This also means they have replaced Boyz II Men with the record for the most consecutive weeks at #1 by a duo/group in Hot 100 history. They had two runs at #1 throughout the allustrious 1990's for 16 weeks each.

One of those chart runs for B2M was thanks to this sweepingly cry-worthy stunner "One Sweet Day", which was a duet with Mariah Carey back in '95. Take a listen below. They just don't make 'em like that anymore, now do they? Get out your tissues, people.

Ah 1995 Mariah. My favourite Mariah - she had a trifecta of near perfect singles for me then with this, the previous Fantasy and one of my fave tracks of the 90s and ever Always Be My Baby (which replaced One Sweet Day on my photocopied news letter chart then and stayed for 16 weeks!!) Thanks for the memories (and for playing en vogue for me. Free your mind and the rest will follow) :)
