Black Eyed Peas Admit They Don’t Like ‘My Humps’

Robert Astley Sparke, Interscope

Tired of the Black Eyed Peas‘ ‘My Humps?’ So are they. Frontman will.i.am recently spoke on the 2005 hit, admitting that they didn’t give it their all on the lyrical tip.

The eccentric rapper/producer stated that the Peas no longer want to include ‘My Humps’ in their live shows because they don’t feel it’s up to snuff. “For a while, [we did] ‘My Humps’ and then it got to the point where we didn’t want to play ‘My Humps’ no more,” he told MTV.com. “You know, ’cause ‘I met a girl down at the disco,’ I just didn’t want to say that no more, lyrically,’ he said.

He elaborated by confessing that the lyrics didn’t represent their abilities. “It wasn’t like my best lyrically, but it was fun,” he said. “It wasn’t lyrical miracles, but the beat was rocking, so we throw the beat in there and just let the beat linger, but now ‘I Gotta Feeling’ is like ‘What?”

‘My Humps’ was originally released as the third single off their fourth album ‘Monkey Business.’ The infectious jam, which later nabbed the 2007 Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, hit No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified double platinum for shipment of over two million units.
