This is not a drill. We have official confirmation that a Black Eyed Peas reunion is happening!
That’s right peeps. Will.i.am, Fergie, Apl.de.ap, and Taboo are planning on getting back in the studio together for a possible new record. It’s been 5 years since the band announced they were going on an indefinite hiatus after their “The E.N.D World Tour” in July 2011.
“There will be a Black Eyed Peas reunion. It breaks my heart that I even have to say that because, really, we should just always have been doing Black Eyed Peas actually. We shouldn’t have ever (stopped),” Will recently told Roman Kemp on Capital FM’s “Evening Show”.
Their last release, “The Beginning”, was their 6th album. Since then, Will released his 4th studio album, “Willpower”, in 2013. Just last week, the 41-year-old hit-maker dropped the music video for his new single “Boys & Girls” featuring Pia Mia on the dance track.
During the break, Fergie became a mum to 2-year-old Axl with husband Josh Duhamel. The singer is currently putting the finishing touches on her sophomore LP, “Double Dutchess”.
Given their solo commitment on their music projects, a BEP reunion might take a while but it’s nice to know that there are plans for new music. It has been too long since the group churned out tracks with all 4 members in it.
We don’t know about y’all but we’re more than ready for some “Boom Boom Pow” ;)
