TABOO TALKS THE BEGINNING

The Black Eyed Peas have sold over 620-thousand copies of their latest album, The Beginning, since it was released five months ago. The album was written and recorded while the band was touring behind their previous record, The E.N.D. and Taboo told us it was a totally new experience for the band.

“Well it’s different because it’s a little bit harder you know, it’s heavier on the electro dance side as far as the inspiration. This album was done in such short time it’s probably the fastest album we’ve done. We did it in six to eight months. It was hard because we were on the road and we were doing the album on the road.”

The Black Eyed Peas will perform three nights in Paris, France starting June 22nd.
