The Black Eyed Peas & CL Pull Off a Heist in Epic 'Dopeness' Video: Watch
The Black Eyed Peas are back, and bringing CL along for the crime. The trio of will.i.am, apl.de.ap, and Taboo dropped their new music video for the funky hip-pop song “Dopeness” today (Oct. 26) along with their Masters of the Sun Vol. 1 album.
In the black, white, and gold video, the three are joined by K-pop star CL in a retro-inspired heist that ends with them facing the police, partying it up, and then giving their riches to youth.
The group has collaborated with CL in the past; in 2011, CL performed alongside The Black Eyed Peas at that year’s Mnet Asian Music Awards, while in 2013, CL’s former group 2NE1 were featured on will.i.am’s “Gettin’ Dumb.
Along with CL, the 12-track Masters of the Sun Vol. 1 also features Nas, Esthero, Slick Rick, Phife Dawg and Ali Shaheed Muhammad of A Tribe Called Quest, Posdnuos of De La Soul, and Nicole Scherzinger. It is The Black Eyed Peas' first album since 2010’s The Beginning. Once considered the forerunner for K-pop's big-break in the U.S, this is CL’s first song of 2018, and follows her performance at the Pyeongchang Olympics closing ceremony earlier this year.
