The Black Eyed Peas Transform Themselves In “Imma Be Rocking That Body”

In these recession-weary times, it’s a rare occasion when a big budget music video manages to get the stamp of approval from label suits (unless, of course, the artist is funding the shoot themselves). Still, when you’re the Black Eyed Peas and you spent 26 weeks at #1 on the Hot 100 last year, who’s really going to argue?

After the jump: the Peas stake out the California desert and do battle with Transformers-like robots in their “Imma Be Rocking That Body” double-video.

“Imma Be” and “Rock That Body” have now been combined for the 10-minute “Imma Be Rocking That Body” video. And, we have to say, watching Fergie carry high-tech weaponry and get sand in her black, metal-covered swimwear is ten times more entertaining than sitting through two hours of Shia LaBeouf hamming it up on screen.

The mini movie was directed by Rich Lee. So is this the end of the music videos off The E.N.D. now that the iTunes-ruling Peas have their world tour underway? We know there’s at least another collaboration with the Black Eyed Peas and David Guetta (who produced “Rock That Body.”)

“It’s called ‘Gettin’ Over.’ It’s such a huge hit, it’s crazy,” Guetta told Idolator last month. “The song is on [Guetta’s album One Love] already with Chris Willis singing it. We re-recorded it , still with Chris, and also with Fergie and Will. It’s so big! The record company was like, to Fergie and Will—’You’re crazy! You cannot put out such a big record, because it’ll be competition to ourselves.’ So, we said we would wait until [The Black Eyed Peas] put out their last single.”

Maybe the group will take on Avatar for that vid—although Justin Bieber appears to have staked a claim on the blue-hued blockbuster already.

    The fame of the Black Eyed Peas is evident. Their popularity, which can be proven by the number of tickets sold to their concerts, highlights their fame. They have been on the charts for more than ten years. Their group, made up of four members, is well recognized for their hip-hop music and style.

    lol awesome!

  • Black Eyed Peas

    The Black Eyed Peas are an okay Hip Hop group. Some of their music is good but like there are only a few good songs. Some people really like them but I’m just not a huge fan. Like sometimes they’re fun to listen to if you’re in the right mood but other times they’re just kind of annoying.

  • Black Eyed Peas

    Black Eyed Peas are one of those groups that get really popular, but only for a short time and then they die down for awhile, but then come back with a hit single or something. Just because a group has 1 or 2 good songs on an album doesn’t make them a good group.

    I would agree with you, and it took me awhile to enjoy The E.N.D… but I have to say, that album has a bunch of catchy dance songs. And I think Monkey Business isn't a perfect album, but it has at least 5 great tracks on it that never get old. I'd say that track record is better than most artists/bands out there.

  • Black Eyed Peas Tickets

    I’m not the greatest fan of Black Eyed Peas, but I must admit, when I went to the show I found it surprisingly good. I would definitely see them again.

  • Buckeye

    The Black Eyed Pea are seriously overrated. Sure, they’ve had some amazing commercial success, but does anybody actually believe is a real artist? old school hip hop folks like chuck d, flavor flav put him to shame.
