The Black Eyed Peas inspired author EL James while she was writing sex scenes for Fifty Shades Of Grey.

Discussing her creative process with The Sun, James revealed: "I have songs that I write sex to. One of them is The Black Eyed Peas' 'Sexy'. That is a very sexy song."

'Sexy' appears on the band's 2003 album 'Elephunk'. It features suggestive lyrics such as "I'm likin' you rubbin' me / And you likin' me rubbin' you" and "I put L-O-V-E in you / I love puttin' me in you". Scroll down to listen to the track.

Despite James's fondness for 'Sexy', the song does not appear on the Fifty Shades Of Grey album, which instead features a selection of classical music that inspired the novel. The album will be released in the UK on September 17.

Since being published last year (2011), Fifty Shades Of Grey has become notorious for its explicit sexual content and controversial portrayal of a relationship involving BDSM. The novel has now sold more than 5.5 million copies to British readers, making it the UK's biggest-selling book of all time.

A film version is in the works, but has no confirmed stars yet. Earlier today (September 7), actor Ryan Gosling was linked to the lead role of Christian Grey, a troubled businessman who seduces an innocent college graduate called Anastasia Steele.
