Black Eyed Peas Release ‘Masters of the Sun Vol. 1,’ First Album in 8 Years


The Black Eyed Peas feel like they’re “made of solid gold” on their new album Masters of the Sun Vol. 1, out now.

The band’s highly anticipated seventh album — their first in eight years — was produced entirely by and features Nas, Phife Dawg and Ali Shaheed Muhammad of A Tribe Called Quest, Slick Rick, Nicole Scherzinger, and Posdnuos of De La Soul.

Along with Friday’s album release, the hip-hop group premiered the music video for their song “DOPENESS” featuring K-pop star CL.

Shot in black and white with hints of gold, the video features the group, along with CL and other dancers, bopping to the song’s danceable beat.

Previously released videos from the album took on a more politically charged tone, including “Big Love”, which features scenes of a school shooting and undocumented immigrant raids.
