American hip hop group Black Eyed Peas has returned with their new single “Yesterday” sans Fergie on the 20th anniversary of their debut.
will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo pay tribute to their hip-hop roots by referencing some old school records including NWA’s “Straight Outta Compton”, Wu-Tang Clan’s “Killa Bees” and Beastie Boys’ “Paul Revere”, reported Ace Showbiz.
The music video features will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo in a record store, promoting the vinyl for sale. As they select some classic hip-hop album covers, they recreate the artworks almost by magic.
“We’re paying homage to the folks that inspired Black Eyed Peas. The video is a visual version of (the song),” will.i.am said.
“Yesterday” is the first new song to be released in five years since their last album The Beginning.
Black Eyed Peas will release their new album later this year.
