'Girl Like Me' featured on their latest album, 'Translation', which released in June and has since been a fan-favorite. Shortly after the album's release, Taboo did reveal that a 'Girl Like Me' video is on the way. "I’m excited about the Shakira song," he said in a video interview. "We haven’t filmed that yet, I know it’s coming up soon. But just you know the ideas and the creativity that’s going into the first brainstorming sounds like it’s going to be f**king epic."
One fan also added that a follow-up to their studio LP 'Masters of the Sun Vol. 1' is overdue, saying, "Yoooo it's time for MASTERS OF THE SUN Vol. 2."

The first volume arrived in 2018 and is a political album loosely inspired by the graphic novel of the same name and the contemporary social climate of America. The album saw the Black Eyed Peas departing from their electronic dance and pop-influenced albums 'The E.N.D.' and 'The Beginning' and returning to their earlier hip-hop and boom-bap style.
Black Eyed Peas' new teaser follows a recent post by apl.de.ap who said he was working on music inspired by fans: "You’re the source behind this next song." So, it looks like Black Eyed Peas are fully engaged in their creativity and are actively letting fans know they have big things in store. We can't wait!
