Multi-platinum, award-winning international superstar Fergie, who joined The Black Eyed Peas in 2002, released her solo debut, "The Dutchess," in 2006. "The Dutchess," which spent an astounding 94 weeks on the Billboard 200 albums chart, sold over 6 million copies worldwide and achieved triple-platinum status in the United States. It was propelled by the hit singles, "London Bridge," Fergalicious" (#1), "Glamorous" (#1), "Big Girls Don't Cry" (#1), "Clumsy (#2)" and "Finally." Fergie is the first artist since Christina Aguilera (in 2000) to score three #1s from one album. She has won three Grammy Awards and won the 2007 American Music Award for Best Female Artist (Pop/Rock).

The Black Eyed Peas set a record in August by having the longest successive stay at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart with 25 consecutive weeks at #1. "I Gotta Feeling" held the top spot for 13 weeks and "Boom Boom Pow" was tops for 12 weeks. The singles appear on "THE E.N.D.," the group's fifth release and their first to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The group recently celebrated two wins at the 2009 "American Music Awards" for Favorite Band (Duo or Group) in both the Pop/Rock and Soul/R&B categories.
