Favorite Black Eyed Peas Song – Readers Poll
As of Nov. 2011, the Black Eyed Peas have been on hiatus, but that doesn’t mean fans have stopped listening at all. Will.i.am is doing his solo thing right now with ‘#willpower,’ and Fergie, who happens to be celebrating her birthday today, March 27, is busy with her first pregnancy. Taboo and apl.de.ap have been doing their own things, as well, while the foursome kicks their heels back for some time in the solo spotlight.
In honor and slight remembrance (because we know they’ll be back at it together soon) of the Black Eyed Peas’ career, we want to know what your favorite BEP song is. After examining their discography (we’ve only counted from ‘Elephunk’ onwards, since that’s when Fergie hopped in the group and right around the time they reinvented their sound) and sifting through their extensive list of songs, we’ve picked some of the best and most popular Black Eyed Peas songs for you to vote on below!
Back in 2003, the Black Eyed Peas received their first Top 10 single with the Justin Timberlake-featured ‘Where Is the Love?’ It’s a thoughtful song about social awareness and learning to love your neighbor off of ‘Elephunk,’ which also yielded the party jams ‘Shut Up,’ ‘Hey Mama’ and ‘Let’s Get It Started.’
Next up was the foursome’s 2005 LP ‘Monkey Business,’ which really solidified their hip-pop crossover sound with the massive singles ‘Don’t Phunk With My Heart,’ ‘Don’t Lie,’ ‘My Humps’ and ‘Pump It.’ But the Black Eyed Peas would have to wait another four years before topping the charts for the first time ever with ‘Boom Boom Pow,’ off of 2009’s ‘The E.N.D.’ It was followed up by another No. 1 hit, ‘I Gotta Feeling,’ and yet another chart-topper ‘Imma Be.’ ‘The E.N.D.’ also garnered hits for BEP in the form of ‘Meet Me Halfway’ and ‘Rock That Body.’
Finally, in late 2010, the Black Eyed Peas dropped their latest album ‘The Beginning,’ and it was another success for the group. ‘The Time (Dirty Bit)’ has become a dance floor classic, and ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ showed off Fergie’s vocal skills. And although ‘Don’t Stop the Party,’ their final single off of the LP, didn’t go on to have as much chart success, it’s another blood-pumping, club-ready track that will get you on your feet in no time.
So, which Black Eyed Peas song is your favorite out of the tracks we’ve chosen? Vote in our poll, and be sure to let us know in the comments if your favorite wasn’t included. Also, make sure you wish Fergie Ferg a big “Happy birthday” below too!
