It was propelled by the hit singles, "London Bridge," Fergalicious" (#1), "Glamorous" (#1), "Big Girls Don't Cry" (#1), "Clumsy (#2)" and "Finally." Fergie is the first artist since Christina Aguilera (in 2000) to score three #1s from one album. She has won three Grammy Awards and won the 2007 American Music Award for Best Female Artist (Pop/Rock).

The Black Eyed Peas set a record in August by having the longest successive stay at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart with 25 consecutive weeks at #1. "I Gotta Feeling" held the top spot for 13 weeks and "Boom Boom Pow" was tops for 12 weeks. The singles appear on "THE E.N.D.," the group's fifth release and their first to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
