It's hard to believe now that they're one of the world's biggest pop acts, but the Black Eyed Peas didn't perfect their GRAMMY®-winning sound overnight. Decades of shape-shifting singles showed them the way, starting with the King of Pop himself — bursting through the barriers of soul, funk, and R&B in "Billie Jean." A B-boy anthem about being yourself, "Don't Stop . . . Planet Rock" is Afrika Bambaataa & the Soul Sonic Force at their very best, right down to its brassy electro breaks and laser-guided Kraftwerk loops. And with "Friends," Whodini sets the scene for B.E.P.'s melodic hip-hop style with sleek new wave synths, singsong melodies, and real-deal rhymes. From the Isley Brothers to the Jungle Brothers, from the Staple Singers to Sly & the Family Stone, we've got the stone-cold jams that've helped's genre-jumping group harness their hooks and stockpile their samples.
