Black Eyed Peas - My Humps - Lyrics Meaning

My Humps by the Black Eyed Peas was released in 2005 and reached number 3 in both the US and UK charts

The lead singer of the Black Eyed Peas, Fergie, gave an interview in Q magazine,

explaining the lyrics of this song. She explained that the song is basically about herself and her lifestyle.

When she sings about her hump she is talking about her left forearm that, in the Hindu religion represents tranquillity.

The lumps she is singing about are based on a car accident that she was involved in when she was16 years old.

She was driving down a road in her yellow VW when she skidded and crashed straight into a tree and the injury from this accident has left her with a lump.

It is a common miss conception that this song is about sex and people are surprised when they learn the true meaning of the lyrics.
