Black Eyed Peas have returned with a joyous new single, ‘Mamacita’. For the new track, they have teamed up with Latin-trap star Ozuna and newcomer J.Rey Soul – who has been announced as a new “featured artist’ with the group. The new song sees Will.I.Am and co combining house and reggaeton.
In the accompanying 60s themed video directed by Julien Christian Lutz – aka Director X – the group head to a tropical resort whilst stylishly dressed head-to-toe in Gucci. You can check the ‘Mamacita’ video out below.
‘Mamacita’ is the second song released by the group on their new label, following on from ‘Ritmo (Bad Boys for Life)’ which earned more than 1 billion streams in its first six months of release.
The song was first revealed earlier in the year by DJ Khaled as part of his soundtrack album for the Bad Boys sequel Bad Boys For Life. The record also featured guest spots from the likes of Meek Mill, Quavo and Rick Ross. Jaden Smith, son of the film’s star Will, also featured on the soundtrack.
Earlier today, Black Eyed Peas’ ‘I Got A Feeling’ was revealed as one of the most listened to songs of the last decade, coming it at number 6 in the top ten. Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy’ topped the list, while in the list included Adele, Pharrell Williams, Kings of Leon and Maroon 5’s ‘Moves Like Jagger’, featuring Christina Aguilera.
The poll, compiled by PPL and BBC Radio 2, revealed the top 40 most played songs across radio and television in the UK throughout the 2010s.
Peter Leathem, boss of the music licensing company which compiled the chart, said: “The top 40 most-played songs are the sounds that radio producers and broadcasters have consistently played throughout the last decade and will evoke many memories for all of us.”
The Black Eyed Peas were previously due to headline this year’s Isle of Wight Festival 2020 alongside You Me At Six and Razorlight. However, the event was cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
