Due to overwhelming demand from fans, the digital release of “Boom Boom Pow,” the new single from three-time Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum Interscope recording artists The Black Eyed Peas, has been moved up to Monday, March 30th, when it will become available through all digital accounts.
Fans have been clamoring to purchase the track ever since it impacted CHR/Top 40 Radio two weeks ago. “Boom Boom Pow” is currently No. 17 and the fastest moving song at the format (No. 1 Spin and Audience Gainer). It is the group’s eleventh CHR/Top 40 hit, tying them with the Backstreet Boys for most chart hits in this format by a group this decade. “Boom Boom Pow” is also a hit at Rhythm Crossover Radio where it has climbed to No. 13 and is the No. 1 Spin and Audience Gainer. A video for “Boom Boom Pow” — directed by Motion Theory (who lensed Weezer’s Grammy Award-winning clip for “Pork and Beans”) — will be released in early April. The song was written by The Black Eyed Peas, which is will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo, and Fergie, and produced by will.i.am.
“Boom Boom Pow” is the first single from The Black Eyed Peas’ upcoming fifth studio album The E.N.D., which is due from Interscope Records on June 9th, 2009. The E.N.D. is the Peas’ first album of new material since 2005’s blockbuster Monkey Business, which sold more than nine million copies worldwide and spawned the Grammy Award-winning singles “Don’t Phunk With My Heart” and “My Humps.”
The Black Eyed Peas will perform at the Ultra Music Festival at this year’s Winter Music Conference on Friday, March 27th. For more information, please visit the band’s official website: www.blackeyedpeas.com.
