LOS ANGELES, July 14 (UPI) -- Mariah Carey, Gwen Stefani and the Black Eyed Peas have the most popular singles in the United States, Billboard reported Thursday.

There are a number of new contenders knocking on the door to the top of the charts, however.

Carey's "We Belong Together" topped the Billboard Hot 100 for the seventh non-consecutive week of its 15-week chart tenure. It's also No. 1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs list for an eighth week and notched its second week atop of the Pop 100.

Stefani's "Hollaback Girl" is No. 2 in its 17th week on Hot 100. The Peas' "Don't Phunk With My Heart" held at No. 2 on the Pop 100 and No. 3 on the Hot 100.

The top debut on the Hot 100 chart is a remake of the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" by Paul McCartney and U2 at No. 48.
