Black Eyed Peas albums are almost guaranteed to be filled with up-tempo dance songs, techno-inspired beats, and experimental musical styles. The Black Eyed Peas are notorious for their out-of-this-world style and original tracks, and their albums are a representation of this. Since Stacey Ferguson, more commonly known as Fergie joined the band, the Black Eyed Peas were forever launched into mainstream music.
- "Elephunk" Released in 2003 "Elephunk" was the album that launched the Black Eyed Peas further into the mainstream, making them a household name. With songs such as the upbeat dance hit, "Hey Mama," the funky "Shut Up," and inspirational and meaninful "Where Is The Love," the album was certainly difficult to take off of repeat.
- "Monkey Business" After releasing "Elephunk," it didn't seem as if the Black Eyed Peas had released all of their hits and were unlikely to release another. They proved the mainstream media wrong again when they released "Monkey Business" in 2005. The first single from the album was "Don't Phunk With My Heart," which made its way into the minds of nearly everyone who listened to hip-hop. "My Humps" was also released on the "Monkey Business" album. The album was quite diverse, featuring artists such as Justin Timberlake, James Brown, and Sting.
- "The E.N.D" Compared to previous Black Eyed Peas albums, this one makes it obvious that the Black Eyed Peas were going to stick to their universal style. "The E.N.D" simply shows how they've grown with their music, dominating the industry as the upbeat, wild, and crazy band in all of hip-hop. Different flavors of music are introduced in "The E.N.D" and there is no doubt that the Black Eyed Peas have a knack for keeping their fans interested.
- "The Beginning" After earning the number one spot on iTunes in 11 countries, "The Beginning" had found its place in the world of hip-hop. Will.i.am stated that the group was experimenting with different styles through various different technologies, including 360 video. One song in particular was the theme song from "Dirty Dancing" (1987). The band inserted their own words into the song and messed around with the beat to create a well received hit.
- "Bridging The Gap" In 2000, before Stacey "Fergie" Ferguson joined the group, the Black Eyed Peas were still a successful trio with feel good music. "Bridging The Gap" is all about getting hyphy and dancing your heart out. Beats are up-tempo and make it nearly impossible to avoid the dance floor.
