Much to the delight of their legion of fans, Black Eyed Peas recently unleashed the ever so sexy music video for their latest single, ‘eXplosion.’ Tapping Brazilian bombshell Anitta to assist, the 26-year-old trades verses with the group’s leader – will.i.am – over the horn-filled soon-to-be-hit:

“Boy, you know who I am, no, I am no beginner,” she coos. “I make it hotter than the sun — fire, fire, fire, I’m a sizzler.”

Decorated with a troop of colorful dancers, the video’s arrival – seemingly a tie-in with the group’s scheduled performance at this year’s Rock in Rio festival – comes as a fitting ode to the country’s dance and music culture.

Kiana Ledé has found her name on the lips of many of late.
