The E.N.D. (abbreviation of The Energy Never Dries) is the fifth studio album by American pop group The Black Eyed Peas. The album was first released in Japan on 3 June 2009, and worldwide six days later. Critics described the album as containing more anthemic and inspirational songs in the group's bid to appeal to a new generation of music listeners.
Monkey Business is the fourth studio album by The Black Eyed Peas in their major crossover from hip-hop and soul to more funk and dance music, released in various countries in late May to early June 2005 (see 2005 in music).
The album was certified three times Platinum by the RIAA in the U.S. and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. The Canadian Recording Industry Association (or CRIA) has certified Monkey Business 6x Platinum, with sales of over 600,000 copies. The Australian Recording Industry Association (or ARIA) has also certified Monkey Business 6x Platinum, denoting sales of over 420,000 copies.
Elephunk is the third studio album by American musical band The Black Eyed Peas. Released on June 24, 2003, the album charted at number 14 on the American Billboard 200 albums chart and was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, and has sold 8.5 million copies worldwide, with almost 3.2 million in the U.S. alone. The album was produced by Ron Fair and band member will.i.am, and was the first to feature vocalist Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson. Four singles were released from Elephunk, including "Where Is the Love?", which topped the singles charts of over ten countries.
Bridging the Gap is the 2nd album by Black Eyed Peas, released in 2000. It contained the single "Request + Line", featuring Macy Gray. "Weekends" was remixed & renamed as "Another Weekend" for the Deluxe Edition of their 5th studio album The E.N.D.. Kim Hill left the group during the year of this album but she is featured in one song called "Hot" seen in the "Weekends" video & is a background singer in "Tell Your Mama Come".
The album's mediocre chart performance was blamed by the band partly on the fact that the band's core audience of college students illegally downloaded the album before its release via Napster.
Behind the Front is the debut album by Black Eyed Peas, released in 1998. Most of the tracks were demos for Grass Roots. The song "Joints & Jam" appeared on the soundtrack of Bulworth, where it was billed as "Joints & Jams". On the back cover, "Skit 3" is listed after "Duet" when it is actually after "Communication". The first music video to be made from the album was for "Head Bobs"; in spite of that, the song was never released as a single and the video received no airplay. The video was later featured in the Behind the Bridge to Elephunk DVD. A music video was also made for "What It Is", which also was never released as a single. However, the song was featured on some versions of the "Joints & Jam" single as a B-side and the music video was also featured on Behind the Bridge to Elephunk. "Be Free" is played in the film, She's All That.
The Black Eyed Peas date back to 1988, when eighth-graders William Adams (will.i.am) and Allan Pineda (apl.de.ap) met and began rapping and performing together around Los Angeles. The pair signed to Ruthless Records (run by Eazy-E) in 1992 catching the attention of Eazy-E manager (Jerry Heller)'s nephew. Along with another friend of theirs, Dante Santiago, they called their trio Atban Klann (ATBAN: A Tribe Beyond a Nation). Their debut album, Grass Roots, was never released because Ruthless did not consider the positive themes and peaceful lyrics to be attractive.
