Black Eyed Peas And J Balvin Team Up On ‘RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)’

The Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin have teamed up for “RITMO (Bad Boys for Life),” a song from the Bad Boys for Life soundtrack.

The track, which samples Corona‘s “The Rhythm of the Night,” is a mix of hip-hop and pop. The lyrics are a mix of Spanish and English verses.

“Toda la noche rompemos, a el otro dia volvemos” (we break in all night, we come back next day), Balvin sings, and BEP joins, “Baby tonight is like fuego.”

The video, directed by Colin Tilley, shows the singers performing the track on a stage decorated with neon lights, accompanied by Tron-esque dancers. The visual also features clips from the film itself, mostly showcasing Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in various car chases.

“I wanted to reimagine ‘Rhythm of the Night’ by Corona and give it a minimal, futurist, afro-fused reggaeton vibe,” the Black Eyed Peas’ said in a press release. “The final song and video feel like the classic next level futurism that the Black Eyed Peas are all about.”

Balvin added, “I’ve been a Black Eyed Peas fan for as long as I can remember. They are legends and it’s an honor to join them and become part of the sound of Bad Boys for Life.”

Bad Boys for Life, featuring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, is scheduled to arrive in theaters on January 10, 2020.

“RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” is the Black Eyed Peas’ first release on their new record label Epic Records.
