Black Eyed Peas: The E.N.D.

The International Pinoy artist apl.de.ap together with will.i.am, Fergie and Taboo has released their fifth studio album for their hip hop group Black Eyed Peas. The E.N.D. or Energy Never Dies was initially released on June 3, 2009 in Japan and June 9, 2009, worldwide. The album title was thought about since 2006, when Fergie released her very own album, The Dutchess. Other tentative album names include Evolution, From Roots to Fruits, and then The Energy Never Dies.
The new album features more anthemic, inspirational songs in a bid to appeal to new generation of music listeners. From hip hop music, here comes the electro hop (a fusion of elecrofunk with hip hop rap).
The album's single: "Boom Boom Pow", has already topped the Billboard Hot 100 for 11 weeks. The album has acquired the number 1 position for Australian Albums Chart, Canadian Albums Chart, and U.S. Billboard 100. It sold 31,000 copies in the UK in its first week. The album's second single, "I Gotta Feeling", was premiered in May 21.

"The E.N.D. or The Energy Never Dies, is a diary of music that at any given time, depending on the inspiration, you can add to it. I am trying to break away from the concept of an album. What is an album when you put 12 songs on iTunes and people can pick at it like scabs? That's not an album. There is no album anymore." - wil.i.am
