Will.i.am would love to say "I told you so" to all the people who have bashed the Black Eyed Peas in the past, but he won't -- even though the group is making history on the Billboard charts.

This week the foursome, who have had their share of critics, will have topped Billboard's Hot 100 singles charts for 20 consecutive weeks, the most ever by an act. "Boom Boom Pow" and the song that dislodged it, "I Gotta Feeling," have been at the top of the charts for 12 and 8 weeks, respectively.

Though the band has had big hits over the years, "Boom Boom Pow" was their first No. 1 single.
