Singer Fergie is not on this latest project, and the group is explaining why.
Fergie shares a 6-year-old son, Axl Jack, with her ex-husband, actor Josh Duhamel.
The members pursued solo projects, and Fergie hosted Fox’s reality singing competition “The Four.”
The Black Eyed Peas now have a new singer, J. Rey Soul, and a new album titled, “Translation.”
At the time of the interview, Will.i.am told Billboard Fergie that he hadn’t heard the new album yet, but hoped he liked it.
“We try to keep in touch,” he said of his relationship with the group. “We contact each other from time to time and say hi and happy birthday and Merry Christmas and Happy Easter. She knows where we are! We are in the studio.”
