They became world-famous with songs like “I Gotta Feeling”, “Where Is the Love?” and “Rock that Body”. Band members like will.i.am and Taboo achieved absolute cult status. They received two diamond records, sold more than 76 million records and are now among the most successful musicians of all time. Welcome to the introduction of one of the most iconic hip-hop bands of our time: The Black Eyed Peas – booking and artist information
The Black Eyed Peas – Biography
Before the big hits, the numerous awards and their legendary status, the band was rather moderately successful. The collective took its first steps in 1989 in Los Angeles. The members will.i.am and apl.de.ap, who are still active today, form the alternative hip hop band “Atban Klann”.
However, the first studio album under this name was never released, because the positive lyrics of the band did not fit the image of their current label “Ruthless Records”. After the renaming to “The Black Eyed Peas” two albums followed.
Although these are not yet entering the mainstream, critics are positive about the interesting interpretation of hip-hop. After the entry of Stacy ‘Fergie’ Ferguson in 2003, the band released their third studio album “Elephunk” – their ticket to the charts.
Elephunk>/strong> sells 7 million copies in total. Two years later the band tops itself with “Monkey Business” and 10 million sales. In the meantime the mega stars have sold over 76 million records. They belong to the most successful musicians of all time.
The Black Eyed Peas – the greatest hits
Since entering the chart, the group has continuously recorded top 10 hits like “Don’t Phunk With My Heart”, “My Humps” and “Pump It”. Their songs become party classics and dominate the playlists of a generation. The first single from Elephunk “Where Is the Love?” becomes a absolute world hit in 2003.
The pacifist, soul-influenced hip-hop song becomes the anti-war anthem, dominates the charts in 13 countries and remains number one in the UK for seven weeks. Five songs from the album “The E.N.D” alone become Billboard Hot 100 Hits. The massive success of the band leads to, among other things, their appearance at the 45th Super Bowl halftime show in February 2011.
The Black Eyed Peas – awards
In addition to many other honors, the Black Eyed Peas have received a total of six Grammys, eight American and three World Music Awards. Their seven studio albums have been awarded over 150 times with gold, platinum and even two diamond records.
The single “Boom Boom Pow” from the hit album “The E.N.D.” will be downloaded 465.000 times in the first week of its release. This was the third place of the most downloaded songs in one week of all time. In addition, the Black Eyed Peas simultaneously took first and second place in the Billboard 100 with “Boom Boom Pow” and “I Gotta Feeling”, which only ten other artists had done before.
The Black Eyed Peas – Social commitment
In 2005, the Black Eyed Peas covered the John Lennon song “Power to the People”, which Amnesty International released as part of the campaign “Make Some Noise“. The group becomes part of the worldwide celebration of human rights. The social commitment of the band comes from the motivation of the individual members. In addition to their charity campaigns, they regularly support 15 different charities.
Some of them were initiated by the members themselves. On August 31, 2016 they will re-release their anti-war anthem under the name “#WHERESTHELOVE” with the support of many other artists. The proceeds of “#WHERESTHELOVE” will flow into will.i.ams’ own “i.am.angel foundation”. This foundation supports disadvantaged children and young people from various backgrounds with a wide range of educational programmes on their life and career paths.
In 2011, the artist is founding his own car brand “IAMAUTO” near the ghetto where he grew up in order to reduce unemployment in Los Angeles. The Black Eyed Peas, even after years in the spotlight, still place great value on giving something back of their success.
