Will.i.am confirms Fergie has left the Black Eyed Peas
Black Eyed Peas fans’ fears have been confirmed: Fergie has left the group.
Fergie joined the group back in 2002, but it’s been five years since she recorded with them, so the news, while disappointing for fans, can’t come as too much of a shock.
Speaking with the English-language UAE magazine Ahlan!, will.i.am said: “Since the beginning of Black Eyed Peas, we've always had amazing vocalists that appeared on the mic with us.
"People like Macy Gray, Esthero, Debi Nova, Fergie. On Elephunk, there were several females that appeared on that album.
"Obviously Fergie was the featured female, but on songs like 'Let's Get it Started,' it's Noelle [Scaggs], and then Fergie, songs like 'Latin Girls,' it's Debi Nova, and 'Request Line,' it's Macy Gray. We'll always work with good females.
"What people know The Black Eyed Peas to be, nobody is replacing Fergie.”
will.i.am continued: "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 added to Ahlan!.
"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, Masters of the Sun."
