George Clinton Sues Black Eyed Peas Over Song Sample

The Black Eyed Peas gave fans that have been patiently waiting for their upcoming album "The Beginning," which hits stores Nov. 30, a sneak peak when BEP rapper Taboo played three of the album's twelve tracks during a recent after-party in Brazil.

All three songs continue in the same bass-thumping party vein of the group's previous album, "The E.N.D." but "Don't Stop The Party" is definitely the most club-banging of the trio. It feels like the second half of "Boom Boom Pow," which spent a whopping 12 weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 2009.

The AutoTune-heavy "Light Up the Night" comes next. The track seems to be a favorite of Taboo's, as he pantomimes the song's breakdown and mouths the words to his dancing audience.

"The Best One Yet (The Boy)" is maybe the slowest of the three but is in no means a party stopper. With a back beat eerily familiar (Daft Punk's "One More Time" anyone?) it's definitely sure to get people out on the dance floor as well.

If these tracks, as well as lead single "The Time (Dirty Bit)," are any indication, then "The Beginning" will be another unfathomably catchy futuristic synth-beath driven collection of radio hits to help get the party started.
