Top 10 Black Eyed Peas Songs

By

The Black Eyed Peas hit the pop charts with music that defies genre boundaries. They incorporate strong elements of hip hop, R&B, dance and pop music. The group's only female member, Fergie, has become a solo star in her own right. However, the group seems stronger than ever as a result. These are the Black Eyed Peas' top 10 pop hits.

1. "I Gotta Feeling" - 2009

It is intended primarily as a party song celebrating going out with friends.

The Black Eyed Peas fourth single from the album The E.N.D. is a quirky two part song that opens like some relative of "My Humps" and then closes with an inventive jazzy outro that is ultra-catchy. This was the group's third #1 pop smash from The E.N.D..

The second single from the Black Eyed Peas album The Beginning was designed as a showcase for the beauty of Fergie's vocals. It works quite well in that context and the somewhat melancholy feel of the song took on even more resonance when it was revealed that the music video for "Just Can't Get Enough" was filmed on location in Japan the week before the country's devastating earthquake and tsunami.

"My Humps" has been the subject of strong derision by music critics, but that didn't stop the Black Eyed Peas from scoring a #3 pop hit with it. Alanis Morissette recorded what seems a satirical version of the song. "My Humps" won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal.

"Where Is the Love" reached #8 on the US pop singles chart becoming the Black Eyed Peas' first top 10 hit in the US. Reportedly, before the recording of "Where Is the Love?" the group were very discouraged by their record of creating critically acclaimed music that did not sell well. Producer Ron Fair suggested the group hook up with Justin Timberlake and the resulting collaboration set the group on the path to commercial success. Timberlake was not credited as an artist on the record in an attempt to avoid overexposure while he was promoting his own album Justified. The song received a Grammy Award nomination for Record of the Year.

The Black Eyed Peas' "Pump It" is most notable for its use of the Dick Dale music from his version of "Misirlou." This music was featured on the soundtrack to the movie Pulp Fiction and the video for "Pump It" makes use of that connection. The song was more successful in the UK than the US. It reached #3 in the UK but only #12 at home in the US.
