Black Eyed Peas at Live 8

Black Eyed Peas are an American hip hop crew from Los Angeles, who have lately enjoyed massive international pop success. As Atban Klann, they signed to Ruthless Records (run by Eazy-E), but the Black Eyed Peas album was never released because the positive and peaceful lyrics were too unusual for Ruthless. Black Eyed Peas is composed of Will.i.am, Apl.de.ap, Taboo, and Fergie.

After Eazy-E died of AIDS in 1995 (see 1995 in music), Atban Klann reformed as the Black Eyed Peas and released a debut, Behind the Front (1998, 1998 in music) that earned the group (and their accompanying live band) critical acclaim. The hit single off of Behind the Front, "Joints and Jams", was featured on the Bulworth soundtrack. Their other album is 2000's Bridging the Gap (2000 in music). Their breakthrough album Elephunk was released in 2003, featuring a new female vocalist, called Fergie, born as Stacy Ferguson who used to be in a teen pop band named Wild Orchid. She is the replacement of background singer Kim Hill who departed the band during 2000.

From "Elephunk" came the anti-war anthem "Where Is The Love?", which became the Black Eyed Peas first major hit, peaking at #8 on the US Hot 100, but topping the charts practically everywhere else, including six weeks at #1 in the UK where it became the biggest-selling single of 2003. The Black Eyed Peas album subsequently spawned "Shut Up", which made it to number 23 in the US but peaked at UK #2 (despite being referred to by one reviewer as "The single most vacuous, pointless, vile and generally loathsome song in a generation") and topped the charts in many other European countries including France and Germany. Indeed the Black Eyed Peas have enjoyed greater mainstream success in Europe than in the US with "Elephunk" going Top 10, gold and (sometimes multi-)platinum in the UK, Germany and many other European markets, yet ultimately failing to break the US Top 10, although it did go platinum there. The Black Eyed Peas third single from the album, "Hey Mama" hit the Top 10 in the UK, Germany and several other European countries, and reached the Top 30 of the US Hot 100. However, there was substantial edits to parts of "Hey Mama" for the radio, single and video versions, including the line "we drop bombs like we in the Middle East".

The Black Eyed Peas publicly backed John Kerry's presidential campaign in 2004, and performed (along with James Taylor, Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow and others) at Kerry's election night rally in Boston.

During Black Eyed Peas' concert tour in Asia in 2004, Apl.de.ap's life story was featured in a weekly Filipino TV drama special called Maalaala Mo Kaya (Will You Remember), which explained his childhood with his poor family in Pampanga, Philippines, before sadly parting with them to live a better life in the US at the age of 14. The Apl Song, with the chorus written in Tagalog, from their album Elephunk, tells the story of Apl.de.ap. The Tagalog lyrics and backing melody were based on the song Balita, an original composition of the 1970s Filipino folk rock group Asin.

The Black Eyed Peas song "Let's Get Retarded" was restyled as "Let's Get it Started" for an NBA finals worldwide commercial. New lyrics gave the tune a basketball theme, as opposed to the original's theme dealing with getting heavily intoxicated and partying and the spot featured Carlos Santana. The revised song had great success as a single, especially popular on the iTunes music download service.

The Black Eyed Peas' next album "Monkey Business" was released on June 7, 2005. The album's first single "Don't Phunk With My Heart", has been a major hit in the US currently peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. This is the highest peak yet of BEP's career. The song is also at #3 in the UK, and #5 in Canada, and #1 in Australia.

"Monkey Business," Black Eyed Peas' 4th album debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart, selling over 295,000 copies in its first week.
