How Much?: The Black Eyed Peas

With the article that I wrote today I thought it would be appropriate to ask what you all think their new album ‘The Beginning’ would sell this week.

Their last album, ‘The END’, sold over 7 million copies so far and has spawned off three number 1 singles. Their new song, ‘The Time’ just hit the top 10 this past week and has been rising in both digital sales and airplay.

With the Susan Boyle reign taking over, their is no way that Continue reading

Black Eyed Peas Score Super Bowl XLV

It was announced yesterday that the Black Eyed Peas would be performing at the halftime of this seasons Super Bowl. The chance to perform at the Super Bowl is truly an honor considering the millions of people who watch it. Once again the Black Eyed Peas are proving their star power.

Ever since the release of ‘The E.N.D.’ in 2009, BEP have continues to jump hurdles with 3 number 1’s from the album and 5 top 10 hits. Their world tour was one of the top grossing of the year, and it was report that they were working with Continue reading

BEP Releases ‘The Time’ Video

The Black Eyed Peas released their music video for their brand new single ‘The Time (Dirty Bit)’ tonight. With their album coming out next tuesday I was starting to wonder where the video was.

This past week BEP has been on promotional overdrive with performances on both Oprah and the AMA’s. Considering their current standing in music I know their sales will be epic next week, but with Susan Boyle dominating the charts for the second week in a row BEP might have to pull out all the stops to ensure they have another number 1 album under their belt.

‘The Time (Dirty Bit)’ video is everything you’d expect from BEP. It has a corniness that is forgiven due to advanced Continue reading

‘The Beginning’ Track List + Poll

After revealing their first single ‘The Time (The Dirty Bit)’ last week, the Black Eyed Peas have released the official track list of their album ‘The Beginning’ yesterday. I always love looking at track list because they have an effect on my level of anticipation. I know it sounds odd, but reading a the names of the songs can spark or fizzle interest.

Seeing the name of a song automatically make me question the sound and content. A songs title is always important because a bad title cold hinder the songs popularity. Reading a track list is a literal peak to the names of future flops and hits.

That being said my feelings were alway a little shaky concerning ‘The Beginning’. I generally like the Black Eyed Peas as a band, and I think they Continue reading

‘The Time (The Dirty Bit)’- Black Eyed Peas

Rating:B/B-

It’s difficult to explain my relationship with the Black Eyed Peas, because I really do love most of their music, but I get sick of their songs faster than any other act. After releasing ‘The E.N.D.’ in June 2009, the band has achieved world wide success, with millions of albums sold and 3 number 1 US hits. While the band was popular before, ‘The E.N.D.’ thrust them unto a whole new level creatively and publicly. Rather than take a break the band is about to release their new album ‘The Beginning’ later this year, which is set to have a more futuristic sound.

But Will It? Continue reading
