Singer Fergie is not on this latest project, and the group is explaining why.
Fergie shares a 6-year-old son, Axl Jack, with ex-husband, actor Josh Duhamel.
The members pursued solo projects, and Fergie went on to host the Fox reality singing competition, “The Four.”
Now the Black Eyed Peas have a new female singer, J. Rey Soul, and a new album titled, “Translation.”
At the time of the interview, Will.i.am told Billboard Fergie hadn’t heard the new album yet, but he hoped she likes it.
“We try to keep in touch,” he said of her relationship with the group. “We reach out every once in a while and say our hellos and happy birthdays and Merry Christmas and Happy Easter. She knows where we’re at! We’re at the studio.”
