Give Peas a Chance

Keepin' it real? The Black Eyed Peas would rather keep it fun.

He's equally blasé about Timberlake's cameo on the album, where the pinup star adds extra we-are-the-world pizzazz to a goofy plea for peace that wouldn't be out of place on a Boomkat CD. "We met Justin at clubs," Will explains. "One night we were dancing in a circle, and he came in and joined our little circle. So we thought, 'Wow, he can bust, and he's pretty dope.' Rappers don't go in the circle, you know what I'm saying? Celebrities don't rock circles. I don't know why they don't, but we the only group that you'll see behind the mike and behind the video camera and offstage rocking it at a club in a circle. And out of all people, Justin Timberlake? What? So Taboo and him made friends and changed numbers, then Taboo played him the song, and he liked it. And it was pretty much finished, but he's like, 'I wrote a part to it.' So Taboo called me and said he wrote a part, we laid that part down a year and a half ago and it came out now."

You could say the same thing about this clear-eyed version of the Black Eyed Peas.
