Black Eyed Peas back on the boil; in talks to do LP and shows

I gotta feeling… that the Black Eyed Peas are gonna reverse their ‘indefinite hiatus’-type split of 2012, and possibly go on a tour, or make an album, or both, in 2015. Well, the threat they’d be back was always there, so it’s not like this is a total shock. For now I’ll just go with ‘unpleasant surprise’.

Some source or other told The Sun: “The Black Eyed Peas are all in agreement that they should put a new tour on for the fans – it’s not like they properly split when they parted for a hiatus. This time around they’re going to head back into the studio and lay down a new album quickly and then hit the road once again”.

Adding that Will.i.am has been the most active in backing a Peas reconciliation, whilst Fergie isn’t as keen, the source goes on: “Fergie’s been stalling and wants to hold out for as much money as she can guarantee. She’s got a baby now and needs it to be a very worthy amount to make her take her baby on the road. Will knows without Fergie there isn’t really a BEP tour so they’re willing to pay her more to keep her happy if that’s what it takes”.

Will.i.am, meanwhile, “just wants to celebrate the career they had and show people they still have what it takes to top the charts with the new music”.

If you’re reading this, Will.i.am, please stop; you’ve done enough.
