The Black Eyed Peas' "Don't Stop The Party" Video Looks Like It Was Fan-Made

The Black Eyed Peas are coming off what I'd argue is their best singles ever, the stirring "Just Can't Get Enough" (which, as we know, saved their careers in this era of The Beginning). So now they've opted for "Don't Stop The Party" as the follow-up.

Unfortunately, as the title unintentionally implies, this particular party feels like the same one the Peas started with "Boom Boom Pow" then carried on in hits like "I Gotta Feeling" and "Imma Be." No, it doesn't sound exactly like those songs — just maybe a blend of all of them. In other words, if you consider stale trance riffs from 1999 and will.i.am and Fergie's heavily-Auto-Tuned robot hooker vocals to be your idea of a tickle up the skirt, then have at it.

For me, the icing on this flattened cake is the video, which is basically compiled of concert and backstage footage of the band. Lame.



Maybe it's time for Will to hang it up for a couple years, until he can come up with a sound that isn't completely played out?
