Please join me in filling a cup and wishing a resounding and "L'haim" to our clients, Black Eyed Pea - Taboo and songwriter/producers Keith Harris, Printz Board, George Pajon, Jr. and Tim Ordingreff in a summer celebration to their contributions to the essential sounds of the season: Black Eyed Pea's The E.N.D.
The full length album's two breakout singles rule the airwaves. As of July 30, 2009, The Black Eyed Peas set a record for the longest successive #1 chart run in the Billboard Hot 100's history, with "I Gotta Feeling" in its fifth consecutive week at #1, following twelve weeks at the top by "Boom Boom Pow."
The Black Eyed Peas fifth album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 marking it the Peas largest first week sales in the U.S. to date. The Peas are the first duo or group since OutKast to simultaneously occupy the top two spots on the Hot 100.
Among our clients is songwriter/producer Keith Harris, who co-wrote to five songs on the best-selling CD and produced four songs, including the forthcoming single, Meet Me Halfway. I am also proud to rep The Peas producer, keyboardist, multi-instrumentalist and musical director Printz Board, also the producer of four tracks and co-writer of five songs on the CD. George Pajon and Tim Ordingreff co-wrote our generations next anthem with "Now Generation", a song that already promises to hit the ears, hearts & home of what the now generation wants.
On a personal note, please also join me in conveying additional congratulations to Taboo who in addition to all of the successes of his group, also produced -- with his wife Jaymie, a son- Jimmy Jalen Gomez, born on July 19, 2009.
