The Black Eyed Peas dropped a new song titled "Yesterday" onto iTunes Music.
Five years have passed since we last heard a new Black Eyed Peas record (2010's The Beginning), but all that changes today. To celebrate their 20-year anniversary, BEP dropped their new tune, "Yesterday," and an accompanying music video exclusively on iTunes Music. The hard track will surely excite old school Peas fans, highlighting Will.I.Am's iconic BEP rapping skillz while futuristic synthy production bops along. They also sample classic records like Onyx’s “Slam,” ODB’s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya,” N.W.A.’s “Straight Outta Compton,” Wu-Tang’s “Killa Bees,” and Beastie Boys’ “Paul Revere.”. Most noticeably absent is Fergie, who is currently working on dropping a record of her own.
“We’re paying homage to the folks that inspired Black Eyed Peas,” Will.I.Am told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 in a new interview.
“The video is a visual version of [the song],” Will added.
Check out the video of Will, apl.de.ap and Taboo jamming out to "Yesterday" while thumbing through their catalogue of music in a record store, showing their re-creations of iconic covers from the past.
