More importantly, they also announce the arrival of their eagerly awaited 9th full-length album, ELEVATION, on November 11, 2022.
From the start, “SIMPLY THE BEST” rides over luminous, dancefloor-ready keyboards and into a sing-along chorus, “No it don’t get better than, better than this.” Black Eyed Peas, Anitta and El Alfa exchange verses, unleashing an undeniable and unbreakable chemistry. At the same time, Anitta infuses the song with Brazilian swagger, El Alfa pops up with a Dominican Republic flavor, and Black Eyed Peas exude laid-back Los Angeles confidence amongst these global beats. Filmed in Los Angeles, the visual also continues a tradition of larger-than-life videos for the group. Once again, they succeed!
ELEVATION presents the Black Eyed Peas expanding the collective musical consciousness and pushing boundaries once again (as only they can). Of course, bring some friends for this roller coaster ride. The group joins Daddy Yankee on the reggaeton hit “BAILAR CONTIGO,” while Nicky Jam lights the funkified “GET DOWN” with fresh fire. Then there’s “FILIPINA QUEEN,” where they team up with Bella Poarch for the first time and deliver inimitable, irresistible bop. Nicole Scherzinger lends her powerful voice to “NO ONE LOVES ME,” and the Black Eyed Peas and Ozuna close the album together on the universally resounding “LOVE.”
We were initially given a taste of ELEVATION with the international hit “DON’T YOU WORRY” [con Shakira y David Guetta], which has already gathered more than 100 million Spotify streams and 107 million YouTube views on the music video. At the same time, it catapulted into the Top 40 on AC, the Top 30 of the iTunes Top Pop Songs Chart, and the Top 50 of the Shazam US Top 200. Beyond recent acclaim from Billboard, NME, and more, the group has also performed recently on ABC’s Good Morning America Summer Concert Series in Central Park.
It’s ELEVATION season for the Black Eyed Peas. Join them on the next level!
