Black Eyed Peas ‘still one big family’, will.i.am says.

The group last week released a music video for single Yesterday showing rappers will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo, who first formed The Black Eyed Peas in 1995, flicking through records in a music shop and appearing on their covers. Female vocalist Fergie, who like will.i.am has released solo material in recent years, did not join the group until several years later and does not appear in the Yesterday video, which will.i.am has said is a homage to the band’s hip hop heroes. “We are still one big family. After a long five-year hiatus, the group made a surprising come back with a single “Yesterday”, which is a sort of tribute to all those classic hip-hop groups by whom they were influenced including Public Enemy, A Tribe Called Quest and Wu-Tang Clan. But Will.i.am says there are no issues between the members of the group and they are still like a family. “We were in the studio with Fergie last week.

Their first album “Behind the Front” was released in 1998 but it was not until the release of their third studio album “Elephunk” in June 2003 when they achieved tremendous record sales. Their fourth album “Monkey Business” was even bigger success and with singles like “Pump it”, “Don’t Phunk with My Heart”, “My Humps” and “Don’t Lie”, the album was sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. “Don’t Phunk with My Heart” also earned them a Grammy Award in Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group in 2006. “Boom Boom Pow”, “I Gotta Feeling” and “Imma Be”, from the next album “The E.N.D, all went on to top Billboard Top 100. “I Gotta Feeling” stayed at the top position for 14 consecutive weeks.
