BLACK EYED PEAS’ ‘MASTERS OF THE SUN’ ALBUM GETS RELEASE DATE
Peter A. BerrySeptember 27, 2018

The Black Eyed Peas are officially back in action. Last week (Sept. 20), the trio unloaded a thoughtful visual for "Big Love," a reflective track in the same vein as their breakout 2003 hit, "Where Is the Love." The crew have also announced that Masters of the Sun, an album that will mark their first in over eight years, is all set to drop on Oct. 12.

On "Big Love," Black Eyed Peas discuss the ills of poor gun control and more. On the track, Will.i.am spits, "Kids on the Percocet, trippin' on the medicine/Call it like I see ya wit' some drugged up Americans/Everybody's following/Ain't nobody leading/People lovin' guns more than cases and season/And they say the reason is to protect their freedom/But we don't believe 'em."

In the video itself, we see teen versions of the Black Eyed Peas attending a high school just as a shooter makes his way onto the premises and begins his attack. In the second portion of the new visual, we're taken to the scene of immigrants trying to make their way past the border before they're halted by border patrol.

As we said up top, Masters of the Sun will the Black Eyed Peas' first LP since 2010's The Beginning. It will also mark the group's first project since the departure of Fergie, who left the group in early 2018.

I really like Big Love and think the album COULD be decent. Could also be a big trainwreck, though. We'll see

Just skimmed through the album. It's really decent. Listenable, but nothing special.

The CL track yeah, it's a remake of "Superdope" that leaked a few years ago. They just added some additional verses and turned the prodution into a Hip-Hop song. Disappointed but not surprised. We're rooting for you, were all rooting for you CL. :cry:

Well, it never was meant to do Well anyways. Their last album was like 7 years ago? their features are also not the hottest acts out there and none of their singles made It big on streaming. The album is just a great way to continue and a new foundation to tour and release more music in the future.

Always thought like this about this release. But not in top 100 is a hit harsh. I was expecting a low placing around 50-60.
