Together Again! Fergie Reunites with Her Black Eyed Peas 'Fam' for July 4th Celebrations
Fergie, Will.i.am, Taboo and apl.de.ap — and their families! — got together for the Fourth of July holiday
“I Gotta Feeling” that fans are just as stoked for this Black Eyed Peas reunion as they were.
Fergie, 43, shared a photo of the group posing for the camera on Instagram captioned, “fourth w the fam.”
Fergie also documented the beachside day on her Instagram stories, including dancing with apl.de.ap and hitting the bar with Taboo, who also shared a number of pictures from get-together featuring his children.
Although Will.i.am confirmed to the Daily Star in February that Fergie had left the group and would not appear on their seventh studio album, the group made it clear that there was no bad blood with the singer while discussing their latest project album Masters of the Sun with Rolling Stone earlier this year.
“So there’s a song that Black Eyed Peas did with De La Soul on Bridging the Gap [‘Cali to New York’], it was just me and De La Soul,” Will.i.am explained. “There’s a song that we have [‘Gone Going’] … it was just me and Jack Johnson. There’s a song called ‘The Apl Song’ where it’s just Apl. Ain’t none of us on it. So that’s the Black Eyed Peas.”

When asked if Fergie was still part of the group, apl.de.ap replied, “Fergie is family.”
Will.i.am said, “Family is family, right? So…”
“Yeah, that don’t … never change,” apl.de.ap added.
At the 2017 Global Goals Awards hosted by Melinda Gates and U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Amina J. Mohammed in New York City, Will.i.am told PEOPLE that he’s supporting the “Fergalicious” singer in the wake of her split from Josh Duhamel.
“I wish her the best,” he said. “She’s my sister and we’re always there for her.”
The Black Eyed Peas weren’t the only band to reunite over the holiday. Nick Jonas shared a photo with his three brothers — Kevin, Joe and “Bonus Jonas” Frankie — on Twitter amid their Independence Day festivities.
“Brothers,” he captioned a shot taken from behind of the siblings with their arms around each other. “The tradition continues.”
