SEXY 8 BEAT is the eighth studio album by Morning Musume.

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!
