will.i.am formed what was to become The Black Eyed Peas in 1992, when he was 17, alongside apl.de.ap and another childhood friend, with Fergie joining in 2003.
The band’s first major hit single Where Is The Love? featuring Justin Timberlake came soon after Fergie joined, and spent six weeks at No.1 in the UK.
The Black Eyed Peas racked up four UK No.1 singles before going on a hiatus in 2011.

Last year, Will.i.am insisted that pop star Cheryl’s plans to go solo were initially his idea, after they collaborated on his single Heartbreaker.
At The Voice 2019 press day, he said: ‘That was the first conversation when I said you’d be dope solo, she’s awesome.
‘I remember when we first did TV we were up against Britain’s Got Talent and then we had the wrong slot, and then they put us in the right slot and boom they grew.’
Just under three years ago, Will.i.am shed some light on his ‘close friendship’ with Girls Aloud singer Cheryl as he revealed they were ‘gravitating’ towards ‘new things’.
He told Fabulous magazine in April 2017: ‘Er, I think when you’re close to somebody you’re always close, but I think we’re just… We’re gravitating to new things.
‘Of course we’re still friends. I don’t know where she hangs out – she doesn’t hang out so much any more. I’m happy for her though.’
