The Australian Recording Industry Association (or ARIA) has also certified ''Monkey Business'' 6x Platinum, denoting sales of over 420,000 copies.

According to IFPI, over 2 million copies have been sold in Europe. In the UK alone, it has sold over 1 million copies, although this is significantly lower than their sales of Elephunk (which stand at over 1.6 million copies). - Wikipedia

Ladies and gentlemen, we present the Black Eyed Peas' "My Humps." You know, my lovely little lumps? You know, of dead presidents?
