The Black Eyed Peas graced the 2020 MTV VMAs stage on Sunday night time, performing their new music, “Vida Loca.” However when the group transitioned into singing their iconic 2009 bop “I Gotta Feeling,” followers had been confused at the absence of 1 specific member: Fergie. Maybe many had forgotten that Fergie actually left the band back in 2017 and feminine vocalist J. Rey Soul joined members Will.i.am, Apl.de.ap, and Taboo in 2018.
“We love her, and she’s focusing on being a mom,” Will.i.am mentioned of Fergie in a Billboard interview earlier this June. “That is a tough job, and that is what she actually needs to do and we’re right here for her, and she or he is aware of the best way to contact us for a retreat or a breakaway. . . We love Fergie, and we do not need something however awesomeness for her.” In accordance with Fergie’s Instagram account, the singer recently celebrated her son’s seventh birthday and continues to assist the Black Eyed Peas.
Since Fergie’s departure from the group, J. Rey Soul has taken over the position of feminine vocals. The singer, who was on the Philippines version of The Voice, carried out at the VMAs with the remainder of the Black Eyed Peas on Sunday night time. Forward, watch their full efficiency from the 2020 VMAs and take a look at the authentic “I Gotta Feeling” music video for a enjoyable throwback.
