The Song of the Summer has arrived! 

Black Eyed Peas have teamed up with Latin superstars El Alfa and Becky G for “TONIGHT (Bad Boys: Ride Or Die),” the lead single from the soundtrack of the highly anticipated new installment of the Bad Boys franchise, Bad Boys: Ride Or Die. The explosive track is available now. The soundtrack will be released on June 7, 2024 when Bad Boys: Ride Or Die arrives in theaters. 

Recruiting Black Eyed Peas for the latest Bad Boys soundtrack is a natural choice given the runaway success of "RITMO (Bad Boys for Life)" — the breakout hit from Bad Boys for Life soundtrack.  That irresistible banger, which samples Corona's 1993 single “Rhythm of the Night,” by Corona, surpassed more than one billion streams on YouTube alone. Not only that, the track topped Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Hot Latin Songs and Latin Airplay charts — and went double platinum. 

This summer, the world's favorite Bad Boys are back with their iconic mix of edge-of-your seat action and outrageous comedy but this time with a twist: Miami's finest are now on the run. Bad Boys: Ride Or Die arrives in theaters on June 7.

When it comes to longevity and the ability to consistently defy expectations, few acts come close to the Black Eyed Peas. Over the course of their illustrious, three-decade career, the group has amassed RIAA-certified platinum and gold records with songs that combine hip-hop, pop, electronica, and Latin influences. Now, with “TONIGHT (Bad Boys: Ride Or Die),” they continue to be the life of the party.
