GRAMMY AWARD winning Black Eyed Peas (also known
as The Black Eyed Peas) is an American musical group. They have sold an estimated 80 million records, making them
one of the best-selling groups of all time. They were ranked 12th on Billboard's
2000s Decade-End Artist of the Decade Chart, and 7th on the Hot 100 Artists of
Although the group was founded in Los Angeles in 1995, it was
not until the release of their third album, Elephunk, in 2003, that they
achieved high record sales. Ever since they were a fledgling group in the environs of Los Angeles, The Black Eyed Peas have flaunted a passionate, energetic hip-hop spirit people have always been drawn to. They've earned fans worldwide with their inventive approach to hip-hop music, inspiring people with loose rhymes, and a positive spirit and funkafied vibe.
Hire Black Eyed Peas for your festival or concert plans.
Their music has always been firmly entrenched in hip-hop but also with an eye to other musical forms.
Black Eyed Peas are keeping it real real. Real how they see it. With hip-hop music influenced by soul, jazz
and Latin rhythms. With a live band. With pumpin' live shows that inspire Black Eyed Peas to burst into
acrobatic movements and that drive audiences to a frenzy.
"Just cuz we dress the way we do and perform with a band doesn't mean we're not hip-hop," begins
will.i.am, Black Eyed Peas' co-founder and lead rapper. "That's who we are and we're not about fronting."
While in high school, Will and Apl formed the dance crew Tribal Nation. That group evolved into Atban
Klann (A Tribe Beyond A Nation); they signed a deal with Ruthless Records in 1992. Atban Klann
recorded an album that was half programming and half live band, but the record never saw the light of day.
Will and Apl reformed as Black Eyed Peas with Taboo also serving as MC; BEP began playing around Los
Angeles all the while gathering musicians to create a live band.
"We wanted the emotions and spontaneity of a live group," begins Will. "Each time is like a new time
because of the energy and feeling that's put into it; it's like you're performing a different song even though the lyrics are the same."

In 1995, they won BNE and ASCAP showcases and discovered the final necessary ingredient to the band – singing backing vocals for another group. Will recruited Kim Hill to sing on a demo track and after one
session, her sweet voice became an integral part of the BEP sound. Interest started building until their shows – the heart
and heat of the group – were crowded with fans as well as reps from many major record labels; Black Eyed
Peas signed with Interscope Records in July 1997. With Will and keyboardist Brian Lapin at the controls,
BEP recorded 50 songs at a Los Angeles recording studio from July 1997 to February 1998; those 50 were narrowed down to the 16 that appear on "Behind the Front."
In 2003, "Where Is the Love?", became the Black Eyed Peas'
first major hit, peaking at No. 8 on the U.S. Hot 100. It was more successful
abroad, topping the charts in several other countries, including seven weeks at
No. 1 in the United Kingdom, where it became the biggest-selling single of 2003.
The single had similar results in Australia, staying at No. 1 for six weeks.

"People got special powers. Black Eyed Peas has the power to be to able create music, and through dig
power we hope we can influence people in a positive way," stresses Will. "'We're not the only kind of
individuals like this, and we're not about preachin,' we're just doin' what is real to us, what gives us energy
and what feels good. That's power to us."
Their discography includes nine studio albums, two compilation
albums, one extended play, forty singles, eight promotional singles,
