Behind the window of Day 17, is Will.I.Am’s This Is Love FT Eva Simmons.

"I've had Number 1s before with the Black Eyed Peas, but to me this one means so much,” Will.I.Am told OfficialCharts.com. “I know people thought I can only be successful in the Black Eyed Peas, they were wrong... With love and #willpower you can do anything and I love music... And this is love."
This Is Love sold 102,000 during its first week on sale. It has sold 398,000 copies to date, making it the 37th biggest selling single of 2012 so far.
