As The Black Eyed Peas continue to march on without Fergie, the rap triad has returned with their a new song and video titled “Get It” today (July 10).
Directed by Ben Mor, BEP highlight the strained trust between police and civilians. At the start of the stirring visual, cops are found wrestling with a young African American, while another group of officers are busy throwing handcuffs onto members of a Latin gang.
In the midst of all the chaos, will.i.am sets the table with his slinky flow and poignant lyrics. “All I wanna do is win/Man, I’ve been winning since way back when/In my ma’s eyes I had a Maybach then/Fast forward now Maybachs weren't in/In and out the project was a project/Mama said progress is the process,” he raps.
Along with their new single, BEP also announced their first European tour in eight years. The trio will embark on a five-city jaunt, with their first show beginning Oct. 27 in London. They will also touchdown in Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow before concluding their run in Milton Keynes on Nov. 3
