Wow, that sucks. I hope the rest of the singles bring it up.
I Gotta Feelin is currently #1 on iTunes. Boom Boom Pow is #2. So they will have the number one single and album next week, but I was expecting HUGE numbers. Monkey Business opened with 290k.

YOUR WEAKEND TOP 10 CHART PREVIEW: Second-day sales held up better than expected for Black Eyed Peas, maybe at the expense of Eminem, who falls hard midweek. Dave Matthews Band also is trending a little stronger than it appeared earlier and is now a solid lock at #2. Chickenfoot will increase in its second week, largely thanks to Target, which put it on sale this week rather than on its official Friday street date. Here's how it all unfolds heading into the weekend:
* Black Eyed Peas (Interscope) 220-230k
Dave Matthews Band (RCA/RMG) 120-130k
Eminem (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) 80-90k
Chickenfoot (Redline) 70-75k
Lady GaGa (Interscope) 45-50k
Hannah Montana: The Movie (Walt Disney) 40-45k
Green Day (Reprise) 40-45k
* Pleasure P (Atlantic) 35-40k
* Mos Def (Downtown) 35-40k
Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 30-35k
Kings of Leon (RCA/RMG) 30-35k
Kenny Chesney (BNA/RCA Nashville) 30-35k
* Denotes debut
You may now return to watching Game 5 highlights on SportsCenter. (6/12a)
A little better... but still bloody feeling!
I Gotta Feelin' is projected to sell more than the album!

I can't believe people not being interested in buying a physical album. Oh well.
I like this record. I'm even considering buying it, and I never bought a BEP album before.
LOVES IT.The E.N.D. is nigh! No, don't start stocking up on canned goods and drinking water. We just mean that the Black Eyed Peas are occupying pole position on the Billboard 200 albums chart with their CD of that name, thanks to first week sales of 304,000.
Amazingly, this is Fergie and crew's first No.1 collection. Their last album, 2005's Monkey Business, was held off the top spot by Coldplay's X&Y. In other chart news, Aventura's CD Last debuted at No. 5, while Mos Def's latest collection, The Ecstatic, hit No.9.
Pleasure P rounded out the Top Ten with The Introduction of Marcus Cooper. It was also a good week for Sammy Hagar's supergroup Chickenfoot, whose eponymous album climbed two places to No.6. Tequila shots all round!
