12 Songs, 58 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Bringing their eponymous 2017 graphic novel to life, MASTERS OF THE SUN VOL. 1 marks The Black Eyed Peas’ first album in eight years—and the first after former singer Fergie’s departure. While leaning on an old-school rap sound, will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo tap into pop formulas such as “Big Love”, and “Wings” with Nicole Scherzinger. Veterans like Nas (“Back 2 Hiphop”), Slick Rick (on the mutating made-for-clubs beat of “Constant Pt.1 Pt.2”) and the late Phife Dawg (“All Around the World”) make welcome appearances throughout an album that marks new beginnings.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

This is what I fell in love with

Thank you for making me feel like I was 22 again and watching your show in San Francisco at the Maritime Hall. Yes.

Really Good

Really good-especially like the songs Wings and New Wave. This album is needed right now.

Meh 😐

It’s not as great as their other stuff. I don’t like it when politics get involved. There are only two or three decent songs, the rest is straight garbage. I waited 8 years for this, not worth the wait.
