Global pop duo Static & Ben El have released their new single, “Shake Ya Boom Boom,” in collaboration with Black Eyed Peas. The track includes a new and innovative video experience in a vertical/smart-phone format that features Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am, taboo, and apl.de.app. This latest single follows the recent success of their early 2020 release “Further Up (Na, Na, Na, Na, Na)/Subelo” and the July 2020 drop of “Milli” featuring triple-platinum Brooklyn rapper FLIPP DINERO.
“Shake Ya Boom Boom” features a combination of singing and rapping by Static & Ben El and will.i.am, with a synergy of classic club beats and energetic up-tempo sounds. The music video was shot in a vertical/smart-phone style with TikTok, YouTube, and Boomerang Instagram clips of Static & Ben El, members of Black Eyed Peas, and several Social Media influencers grooving to the beat and lip-syncing the catchy chorus, “Don’t need words when you move like that/Shake ya boom boom boom boom like that.” All with a combined total reach of 50M fans!
