In 2002, they were joined by a fourth member, Fergie, formerly of the girl group Wild Orchid. By the time ''Elephunk'' and ''[[NewSoundAlbum Monkey Business]]'' were released in 2003 and 2005, the group had changed entirely, moving towards a pop sound with Fergie placed front and center, and much simpler lyrical content. Their new style earned them numerous #1 hit singles and multi-platinum sales, to the point where some people didn't know they did anything pre-''Elephunk''.

** Also, the alleged reason for Kim Hill's departure from the BEP (and subsequently from the record label) was because of her music not being 'black' enough. She was replaced in the group, of course, by Fergie...who is [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy white]][[note]]Actually Fergie is of European, Mexican and Native American descent, so ButNotTooWhite.[[/note]

* UnusualEuphemism: "Let's Get Retarded," the lesser-known original version of what would become "Let's Get It Started." To "get retarded" is another term for getting drunk and having careless fun (basically what the expression "get turned up" became), [[OrphanedReference hence the line]] "Let's get ig'nant, let's get hectic." It's safe to assume [[ValuesDissonance why the band isn't too bothered by this version being forgotten]].
