Red-hot rapper DaBaby will also perform on the show for the first time.
The Black Eyed Peas will make their long-awaited first performance on the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 30, when they perform their new single “Vida Loca.” The Peas performed “Where Is the Love?” on the VMAs pre-show at Radio City Music Hall 17 years ago, but never made it to the main show until now.
Red-hot rapper DaBaby will also perform on the show for the first time. He is expected to join Roddy Ricch to perform their smash “Rockstar,” which logged seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
“Looking back, I can’t believe Black Eyed Peas have never played the MTV Video Music Awards,” the group’s will.i.am said in a statement. “…To be on the top of the charts and on the MTV VMA big stage is a blessing. Thanks to our fans who made this all possible, and we’re going to give them something very special with our first-ever performance of ‘Vida Loca.’”
