will.i.am has confessed that the Black Eyed Peas hit 'My Humps' is not the best song he has written.

Talking to MTV News, the band frontman revealed that while he still believes the beat of the song is "rocking", the group became tired of performing the track because of its lyrical content.

"For a while, [we did] 'My Humps' and then it got to the point where we didn't want to play 'My Humps' no more," he explained. "You know, 'cause 'I met a girl down at the disco', I just didn't want to say that no more, lyrically.

"It wasn't like my best lyrically, but it was fun. It wasn't lyrical miracles, but the beat was rocking, so we throw the beat in there and just let the beat linger."

He went on to say that he is much fonder of another of the Black Eyed Peas' hits, adding: "Now 'I Gotta Feeling' is like 'What?' and when we perform it, in my mind, I'm like, 'Where did that song come from?' I can't believe this is us, and look at all these people singing it like it's theirs."

Black Eyed Peas recently revealed that they have begun work on their next album, the follow-up to The Beginning.

They previously announced plans to open a music academy in New York for teens between 13 and 19 years old.
