Fergie Is Trending Because People Just Realized She's Not an Original Black Eyed Peas Member

Fergie was a trending topic on Twitter on Saturday morning (January 2) and it’s because people were first finding out that she wasn’t an original member of the Black Eyed Peas!

While many people probably assume that Fergie was with the group since they started, she was actually a replacement for singer Kim Hill.

The group was formed in 1995 and Hill left while the second album was being produced in 2000. Fergie joined the group in 2002 and stayed with them until 2016. Vocals are now being performed by J. Rey Soul.

A clip from the Black Eyed Peas video for “What It Is” went viral on Twitter on New Year’s Day and people reacted to Hill being the vocalist in the video.

“i was today years old when i learned Fergie was a replacement,” one fan tweeted.

Another fan said “The Black Eyed Peas had a black lead singer before replacing her with Fergie. How am I just now learning this.”

When asked whether Fergie‘s heard the new album, will.i.am said: “She hasn’t heard it. She’s going to hear it when everybody else hears it. I hope she likes it. We try to keep in touch. 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. And we love her, and she’s focusing on being a mom. That’s a hard job, and that’s what she really wants to do and we’re here for her, and she knows how to contact us for a retreat or a breakaway. It’s really the way Fergie designed it, so we’re respecting her design. We love Fergie, and we don’t want anything but awesomeness for her,” he continued.

Fergie is our sister. So even with these small connections, she’s always going to be our sister. But unfortunately our schedule is displaced by [her] wanting to be a great mom, and she wants to focus on that. And like Will said, we support her 100%,” added Apl.de.ap.
