After a photo hit the internet with Ashanti posted up with The Black Eyed Peas rumors swarmed that Fergie had been replaced because she wants to fly solo. I personally don’t see Ashanti, an established artist with a 10-year career, replacing Fergie. And, apparently Will.i.am doesn’t see it either:
“Fergie will never be replaced…she is our sister…” Will posted to Twitter. “B.E.P. family is more than just a musical group…#stoptherumors.”
Well, that’s good news, partially. He is yet to address if Fergie is now a solo artist.
