- Boom Boom Pow, The Black Eyed Peas
- Poker Face, Lady GaGa
- Blame It, Jamie Foxx
"Boom Boom Pow" is the first single to be released on the Black Eyed Peas' new album "The E.N.D.," which will be released in June '09. Actually, will.i.am describes "The E.N.D." as not an album:
Group leader will.i.am told Billboard that The E.N.D. stands for "The Energy Never Dies", which describes his model for a project that will be living and frequently updated throughout its designated cycle. "It's a diary ... of music that at any given time, depending on the inspiration, you can add to it," the artist/producer/songwriter explains. "I'm 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." He describes the music as "a lot of dance stuff, real melodic, electronic, soulful. We call it, like, electric static funk, something like that."His take on the demise of the album format seems right-on to me. I imagine Boom Boom will get a ton of play this summer.
