Black Eyed Peas Set Mastertone Record

Hip-Hop continues to set milestones in the wireless world, as the Black Eyed Peas’ “My Humps” becomes the industry’s first single to surpass 2 million sales in the United States.

The song is taken from the trio’s triple-platinum A&M album Monkey Business, which has spent 39 weeks on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts.

“Throughout their career, the Black Eyed Peas have pursued the most innovative strategies to get their music heard by the widest possible audience,” said Steve Berman, president of marketing at Interscope Geffen A&M.

“Taking advantage of every technological breakthrough is part of what defines today’s true innovators. The Black Eyed Peas have harnessed the Master Tones media as an extremely effective method of outreach to their fans.”

On March 28, the Peas will release Renegotiations: The Remixes, a collection of 8-tracks that will also be available as an EP via iTunes on March 21.

The set features production by Erick Sermon, DJ Premier, Large Professor and Jazzy Jeff, among others.
