The Black Eyed Peas had a heck of a haul during the 52nd annual Grammy Awards, as the collective nabbed wins for their album (The E.N.D.), their record-breaking single ("I Gotta Feeling") and the video for "Boom Boom Pow."
"It's gratifying," Will.I.Am told MTV News. "Having broken records that you never thought you would break, like 27 weeks at #1 [for 'I Gotta Feeling'], that's like six months. Selling out crazy stadiums with no record stores, and this being the biggest year in your career? It's crazy. 'Cause last album, we sold 12 million records, and going into this record, we were kinda scared about how it would perform, because there's no stores.
