Hey Mama

Album: Elephunk (2003)
Charted: 6 23
  • The third single from Black Eyed Peas Elephunk album, this song has a distinctive reggae feel, thanks to vocals by the British reggae singer Tippa Irie. It's a club-banger, with lyrics addressing a beautiful woman on the dance floor.
  • This song was featured in the very first TV commercials for the Apple iPod. In later years, Apple leaned toward more emerging acts like The Asteroids Galaxy Tour in their commercials, although Coldplay showed up in 2008.
  • This was the first Black Eyed Peas song to crack the Latin American pop charts, where it hit #35. >>

  • Watch out for some serious Krumping in the video. The dance craze was picking up speed at that point, and even Fergie takes a crack at it near the end of the clip. In 2005, a documentary about Krumping called Rize was released.
