Black Eyed Peas are defying pop convention by releasing two singles from their latest album MONKEY BUSINESS simultaneously.

The US band are too impatient to release the tunes separately, so are teaming up "feel-good" track DON'T LIE with LIKE THAT, which boasts a collaboration with a galaxy of hip-hop stars.

Rapper WILL.I.AM explains to MTV News, "At the same time we release that, we're gonna come with another lifestyle kind of song called Like That with Q-Tip, Talib Kweli, John Legend and Cee-lo.

"Don't Lie is a summer feel-good song about messed up relationships.

"It's a song about owning up and apologising and realising your faults. It's about being a man, or a woman - an adult - and confronting situations honestly."
