No need for any fancy intros here, I’ll just tell you directly: the Black Eyed Peas are back! Considering all the major solo moves all four members have been making in the last few years, this is a perfect time for BEP to rejoin forces, forming a Voltron-esque musical juggernaut. Boom Boom Pow, the lead single off forthcoming fifth LP, The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies), has all the pop appeal of the group’s recent discography; will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo, and Fergie show they haven’t lost it with their funky verses, but Will’s own bass-thumping beat is what will blast Boom Boom Pow to the top of the worldwide charts, likely earning it a place among the top 10 records of ‘09. The E.N.D. is currently set to drop June 9, but don’t be surprised if that date ends up being pushed ahead (yes, I mean ahead).
