In 2020, Black Eyed Peas returned to global stardom thanks to their new album, Translation, and a ton of hit Latin collaborations with Nicky Jam, J Balvin, Ozuna and Maluma. The trio of Will.I.Am, Taboo and Apl.de.ap continue their Latin tour with another Latin superstar collaboration in the Shakira-featured new single, “Girl Like Me”.
The hottest Latin record in the world audio-turned-visual stars the megastars as futuristic explorers in search of a cure for so many of the world’s problems. Shakra brings the signature moves while the boys deliver the feel-good wordplay and chants. “Girl Like Me” is representative of the group’s consistent chart domination and unprecedented crossover success this year.
