In autumn 2005, The Black Eyed Peas toured with Gwen Stefani, as supporting act.
In December 2005, they embarked on the "European Tour".
In a positive review of The Black Eyed Peas' new-found style, Rolling Stone noted that since 2002, when the group "hired a blond bombshell named Stacy 'Fergie' Ferguson and gave up their pursuit of backpack-rapper cred, they have made a kind of spiritual practice of recording futuristic songs – a total aesthetic commitment that extends from their garish wardrobes to their United Colors of Benetton worldview." From Elephunk came "Where is the Love?
", which became The Black Eyed Peas' first major hit: it peaked at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the charts in several other countries.
Fergie was originally a member of the children's television series Kids Incorporated and the girl group Wild Orchid. Her second solo album, Double Dutchess, was released on September 22, 2017.
