The Beginning (November 30th) is the follow-up album to the Peas’ wildly successful The E.N.D., which spawned three number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 charts (“Boom Boom Pow,” “I Gotta Feeling” and “Imma Be”) and three GRAMMY awards. The new set includes twelve new recordings and fans can access bonus material (“The Situation,” “The Coming,” and “Own It”) if you purchase the deluxe edition.

After the nominations for the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards were announced, these were some of my initial reactions:
In the sneak preview article that was posted a couple of days ago, I mentioned that a blue ribbon panel comprised of randomly selected NARAS members decides what is nominated in the “Big 4” categories of the GRAMMYs (also called the General Field). After the entire membership has voted, the twenty songs, albums, and newcomers with the most votes are listened to and discussed within the panel before the final nominees are chosen.
