SEXY 8 BEAT is the eighth studio album by Morning Musume. It is the first album to feature eighth generation member Mitsui Aika and the last full-length studio release to feature fourth generation member Yoshizawa Hitomi as the group's leader as well as sixth generation member Fujimoto Miki. The album was released on March 21, 2007.

The album features the band's previous four singles "Aruiteru" (which also appeared on the EP 7.5 Fuyu Fuyu Morning Musume Mini! in December 2006), "Egao YES Nude", "SEXY BOY ~Soyokaze ni Yorisotte~" and "Ambitious! Yashinteki de Ii jan". Also, as with Rainbow 7 and 7.5 Fuyu Fuyu..., tracks by four different sub-factions of the group are featured, including a solo track by Yoshizawa and the third pairing of Michishige Sayumi and Kusumi Koharu as their alter-egos "Shige-pinku" and "Koha-pinku" (first established on Rainbow 7's "Rainbow Pink").
