Black Eyed Peas - Monkey Business Album Review

The B.E.P are back with this album, Monkey Business.

Released on June 7th, fans will be expecting the crazy 4-some's fourth album to be jam packed with some down and dirty beats and funny lyrics however, we seem to have been hit with the more R'n'B light style offerings from the LA group.

The Grammy award winners have always tried to emulate their funky hip hop style partners in America however this album has slowed down the pace of their previous 3. They are now in a league of their own and have earned the rights to create good music without thinking of what genre type their fans would want. They just want to make sweet music, especially with the new arrival of Stacy Fergie Ferguson to gain more fans throughout the world and to provide a different slant on the sound.

Fergie graces the art of rapping in My Style with Justin Timberlake (yet again featuring on probably another future single release). Sting provides his expertise in Unity the band's message track, using lyrics from Englishman in New York .

The legendry James Brown also features in They Don't Want The Music.

Typical Black Eyed Peas tunes on this new album are Dum Diddy, which sounds similar to Hey Mama from their previous album Elephunk.

Most of the album was recorded in London and the US ., Apl and Taboo have turned the 4-piece into a phenomenon.

Pump It uses the sample from Pulp Fiction in its Bollywood meets Hollywood , funky, fast and furious pace and wit.

If you're a massive peas fan or just want to listen to a funky, fresh and positive album, check this out, you won't be disappointed!
