The singer joined the Peas all the way back in 2002 but hasn't recorded with them since 2012 as she has been focusing on her solo career!
Will.i.am spoke to entertainment magazine Ahlan! where he broke the news saying:
"Since the beginning of Black Eyed Peas, we've always had amazing vocalists that appeared on the mic with us''.
"Obviously Fergie was the featured female, but on songs like 'Let's Get it Started,' it's Noelle [Scaggs], and then Fergie, songs like 'Latin Girls,' it's Debi Nova, and 'Request Line,' it's Macy Gray. We'll always work with good females."
As for who could replace Fergie full-time, rumors are looking at former Pussycat Doll Nicole Schwerzinger!
But will.i.am did confirm in the interview Scherzinger is not part of their next project saying he didn't:
"want to go into details how she's involved yet".
