Black Eyed Peas
The Black Eyed Peas are an American hip-hop group from Los Angeles, California, who have enjoyed worldwide pop success in 1988.
The group is currently composed of will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo, and Fergie. Since their breakout album Elephunk in 2003, they have seen international fame for their pop/dance-influenced style of hip-hop music.
The Black Eyed Peas have sold an estimated 27 million albums and singles worldwide.
They've transcended their vigilant hip-hop roots and have become a global phenomenon, the likes of which the music world has rarely seen.
2003’s Elephunk was a breakthrough album for The Black Eyed Peas, vaulting them to a level of success unparalleled by any other hip-hop group.
The accolades are quick to recite: 7.5 million albums sold worldwide, 4 Grammy nominations, 1 Grammy award, and an unforgettable performance on the 2005 broadcast.
But fitted with loose rhymes, buoyant anthemia funk and an ebullient live spirit, the album also heralded a new sound for the modern age – one that is inspired by hip-hop, eschews boundaries and inhibitions, and cuts across ages, races and backgrounds. It is a sound that can be described only as One Nation Under A Black Eyed Peas Groove.
