It's been a long-time coming, but the Black Eyed Peas are officially back! Minus Fergie...
On Wednesday, the group dropped a new politically charged track called “Big Love.”
“Big Love” deals with a range of controversial and political topics from gun violence and police brutality to race relations and the effects of social media.
However, the Black Eyed Peas maintain their famously positive outlook; the track offers an uplifting message about the importance of love, especially in times of uncertainty.
The song was released as part of a voter registration campaign, and will also support organizations dedicated to gun and immigration reform. Proceeds from “Big Love” will go toward March for Our Lives as well as Families Belong Together.
“Big Love” is the first track off of their upcoming album, Masters of the Sun, which is scheduled to drop on Oct. 12, nearly eight years after they dropped their last full-length project, The Beginning.
Earlier this year, Will.i.am spoke about the group's long-awaited album, where he said that it would have a huge focus on their charity and philanthropic efforts:
“We have a different laboratory on this one, and audio scientists and activists, philanthropists, and all this music that we’re doing right now reflects that side, the philanthropy side of who we are as people and the independent route in a way,” he said.
“So ap will speak on the school that he got in the Philippines, he got a bunch of schools in the Philippines. I got an after school program here in East Los Angeles, where we teach our kids science, technology. And Taboo is with the Native community and the American Cancer Society, just trying to address the issues and add to the community.”
