Fergie Exits Black Eyed Peas
The Black Eyed Peas have confirmed that Fergie is no longer part of the hip-hop group, with OG members will.i.am, Taboo and apl.de.ap sitting down with the UAE’s Ahlan! to promote their upcoming opening ceremony performance at the 2017 UEFA Champions League final, as well as the group’s new hip-hop graphic novel, titled Black Eyed Peas Present: Masters of the Sun: The Zombie Chronicles.
When speaking about the group’s decision to part ways with the singer, who originally joined the crew in 2002, will.i.am said: “As for replacing, what people know The Black Eyed Peas to be, nobody is replacing Fergie. She’s working on her solo project at the moment, we’re on this brand-new experience, celebrating 20 years of Black Eyed Peas putting out music.”
He continued, “We worked on a bunch of songs on her solo record, we’re proud that she has her label, but Black Eyed Peas are pushing it forward in terms of content, technology and experiences on our new project.”
