Hip-hop stars Black Eyed Peas have been forced to rename their new single to avoid upsetting radio stations around the globe.

The SHUT UP hitmakers had to change the song's title from DON'T F**K WITH MY HEART to DON'T FUNK WITH MY HEART because record bosses feared it would receive little airplay otherwise.

A spokesman at label POLYDOR says, "It wouldn't have gone down well."

The single is due to be released next month (APR05) ahead of the Black Eyed Peas' long-awaited new album Monkey Business.
