The Black Eyed Peas could soon reform for a world tour but singer Fergie is reportedly asking for more money
The Black Eyed Peas could soon reform for a world tour.
The 'I Gotta Feeling' hitmakers - will.i.am, Fergie, apl.de.ap and Taboo - are set to record their first studio album since 2010 before heading out on the road.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "The Black Eyed Peas are all in agreement that they should put a new tour on for the fans - it's not like they properly split when they parted for a hiatus in 2012.
"This time around they're going to head back into the studio and lay down a new album quickly and then hit the road once again."
Will.i.am, 38, is said to have been "instrumental" in persuading members to get back together, but he's finding it tough to get Fergie on board because she is demanding more for the reunion.
The 38-year-old singer has been spending time with her husband Josh Duhamel and their six-month-old son, Axl, and isn't as keen to tour again.
The source said: "Fergie's been stalling and wants to hold out for as much money as she can guarantee.
"She's got a baby now and needs it to be a very worthy amount to make her take her baby on the road.
"Will knows without Fergie there isn't really a BEP tour so they're willing to pay her more to keep her happy if that's what it takes.
"He just wants to celebrate the career they had and show people they still have what it takes to top the charts with the new music."
