Monkey Business: Don't Phunk With My Heart & Don't Lie
Now we move on to Monkey Business
, and wow, they've really overdosed on the silly love songs
The first single is Don't Phunk With My Heart
, apparently a dating game show parody of The Price Is Right
. The guy Peas all attempt to score with Fergie while Voodoo sabotages their efforts and she sings about whether they would still be loyal after the initial date.
The second single, Don't Lie
, has the guys confess and apologize for lying to Fergie and flirting with other girls. Fergie just keeps repeating "No, no, no, no baby, no, no, no, no don't lie". Yeah, it's pretty similar to the first song in the idea.
Fergie now seems like less of a band member and more like The Wesley
, constantly hogging the chorus sections while merely having the guys reduced to fapping to her. It's quite a shift from their old style, but I suppose that's what sells. After all, this album peaked at #2, even higher than #14 for Elephunk
