"Shut Up" is a song by the American group the Black Eyed Peas. The song was released as the second single from their studio album, Elephunk (2003). It is about a disastrous courtship with the chorus consisting of the lines "Shut up, just shut up, shut up". The song contains an uncredited sample of Kurtis Blow's "Tough".

"Shut Up" was released as the album's second single in late 2003, after "Where Is the Love?" The single was not released in the United States but became an instant success internationally, topping the charts of Australia, New Zealand, and 12 European countries. It was Europe's second-most-successful hit of 2004.

Background and release

will.i.am needed a female singer for the song, so he brought in Fergie. She assisted the group on most of the songs on Elephunk and became the group's fourth member in 2003. While will.i.am, apl.de.ap, and Taboo were working on the song, their girlfriends' phone calls would interrupt the session. Will said "The vibe was blown" and Taboo said "So we turned the negative into positive", by adding the problems they were having into the song they were making.

The song's "Knee Deep Remix" includes a rerecorded version of will.i.am's verse and the bridge. It also includes a new verse with apl.de.ap. An edited version of this remix appears on the deluxe version of the group's fifth studio album, The E.N.D, titled "Shut the Phunk Up". The remix samples the song "(Not Just) Knee Deep" by Funkadelic. In December 2010, Funkadelic leader George Clinton filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against will.i.am, Fergie and Universal Music. Clinton stated that he did not give his permission for the sample and that his signature was forged on the release form.[1]

Chart performances

The single became an international success, reaching number one in Australia, Austria, Belgium (Flanders and Wallonia), the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Sweden, and Switzerland.[2][3][4][5] The single also reached number two in Denmark, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom and peaked at number five in Hungary.[2][6][7] "Shut Up" has become one of the Black Eyed Peas' most successful singles to date. As of August 2014, it was the 47th best-selling single of the 21st century in France, with 400,000 units sold.[8]

In Germany, it is the best-selling single of the band behind "I Gotta Feeling", selling 300,000 copies to reach Platinum status.[9] It peaked at number one and stayed there for five weeks, the band's longest time at the pole position.[10] However, the song never charted on the US Billboard Hot 100 despite appearing on the Mainstream Top 40 at number 30 in November 2003.[11]

Music video

The music video was directed by The Malloys and features an opera themed around a battle of the sexes. In it, will.i.am and Taboo play Fergie's suitors, and apl.de.ap is the conductor.

The music video has several Andre the Giant Has a Posse-style posters near the stage man. Two posters from the song "Where Is the Love?" are also shown. Kimberly Wyatt and Carmit Bachar from the Pussycat Dolls both make cameos in the video. Travis Barker from Blink 182 and Shifty Shellshock from Crazy Town have a cameo in it as well.
