'Monkey Buisness' features 16 tracks, including collaborations with godfather of soul James Brown ("they don't want music"), Justin Timberlake ("My Style") and Sting ("Union"), 'Monkey Business' Spans a hip-hop spectrum from pop to surf to soul. Recorded in Los Angeles, New York, Piladelphia, London, Miami and even the peas' tour bus and a Japanese bullet train! The album was produced largely by Will.i.am. The first single 'Don't Phunk With My Heart' samples Lisa Lisa & The Cult Jam's 'I Wonder If I Take You Home'. AM. 2005
Keeping in step with Elephunk, Black Eyed Peas' Monkey Business is a cross-genre journey peppered with props to hip-hop, rock, folk, funk, and pop. The group invites high-profile guests to pump up the jams, with solid results. "My Style" is Justin Timberlake's BEP foray number two. The song delivers funky fun, but those anticipating a repeat front-and-center performance from "Where is the Love" might be disappointed (no sweet soulful solos this time). Other guests include Jack Johnson, who cowrote the bling-bashing "Gone Going," Sting on "Union" (recalling "Englishman in New York"), and R&B legend James Brown offers up a scorching soul track dubbed "They Dont Want Music." Femme fatale vocalist, Fergie, who joined the band as they were recording Elephunk, has raised her profile considerably on the bands fourth disc. Sassily fronting her way through songs like "My Humps," the "Hey Mama"-esque "Dum Diddly," and the single "Dont Phunk With My Heart," Fergies melodic outpouring colors the record in a way that will appeal to wide audiences, resulting in a progressive "hip-pop" release. --Denise Sheppard

I was a big fan of their older albums, and I even enjoyed most of "Elephunk", but this new CD has just gone too far. Amazing lyrics ?! "My humps ! My humps ! The boys all like my humps !". This CD is downright painful to listen to. What really bothers me is their recurring musical thievery throughout the album, from the first track ripping of Dick Dale to the Jack Johnson track (that even before hearing I immediately knew they probably just took his chorus from his song "Gone" and made a "Where is the Love part 2" out of).
There is nothing wrong with making popular music, dance music, even "Borrowing" elements from other songs, but to call this amazing is ridiculous. Clearly I'm outranked here, as this CD has been at #1 for weeks now, but I cringe when I listen to the lyrical content of this album. Every song is either "You want me", "You had me but did me wrong", "Dance ! Dance !" or "This is wrong with society". I really hope that "Amazing" reviewer was right when he said this was their last album. I shudder to think what previously great song they will rip-off next to get a radio / kid friendly hit.

His favourite song is Bebot - he doesn't know what he is singing but he loves it!
