The Black Eyed Peas' 'I Gotta Feeling' has become the most downloaded song in history.

With over 5.5 million legal downloads, the track has knocked Flo Rida's 'Low' off the top spot as the largest selling digital song since records were started by company Nielsen Soundscan in 2003.

'I Gotta Feeling' spent 14 weeks at number one in the US singles chart last year, and the track is still at number 37 in the chart compiled by iTunes - the largest legal download retailer.

Black Eyed Peas leader will.i.am has previously said of his songwriting: "Lots of people say, 'Black Eyed Peas st is simple,' and I'll be like, 'No, fool, it's the most complex st you even could fathom.' That's the reason it works everywhere around the planet."

While 'I Gotta Feeling' is officially the most downloaded song, the band's previous single 'Boom Boom Pow' - a US number one for 12 weeks - is at number four in the list with almost 5.3 million sales. Holding third place is Lady Gaga's debut track 'Just Dance', with around 5.36 million downloads and her second single 'Poker Face' is at number five with over 5.13 million downloads.

With all of the tracks in the top five released in the last three years, the chart also reflects the trend in consumers converting to digital media to purchase tracks.
