Charice’s new album is shaping up to be another top 8 hit or even higher based on all her incredible collaborations with various artists and songwriters/ producers. Looks like the dreaded sophomore slump will be nothing but a myth to Charice when her album comes out this fall. Recently reported working with Charice are Kara DioGuardi, Bruno Mars, Nick Jonas, and Soulshock. And now, the Black Eyed Peas can be added to that list.
For those of you who are living under some sort of rock, the Black Eyed Peas is a Grammy Award-winning hip-hop group composed of Will.i.am, Taboo, Apl.de.Ap, and Fergie. They have multiple hit songs which include “Boom Boom Pow”, “Where is the Love?”, “The Time (Dirty Bit)”, and “My Humps”.
It was Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas who first revealed on Twitter the collaboration. Charice then later retweeted his message – Taboo: “@OfficialCharice collabo happened today for the big record we got along with @jeremypassion @apl_de”. Taboo even included a twitpic of her and Charice taken inside the studio. Charice looks really sweet and young in the photo, especially while standing next to the tall and cool Taboo:
The @apl_de mentioned in the tweet above is Apl.de.ap of the Black Eyed Peas who, like Charice, is of Filipino heritage. He has actually twice expressed his inclination to work with Charice. First was in December 2010 through this interview with ABS-CBN, and second was in March 2011 when he was working on a song about the People Power Revolt in the Philippines. The @jeremypassion mentioned in the same tweet is an up and coming rnb recording artist from California.
Does this new collaboration news with the Black Eyed Peas make you more excited for Charice’s new album? What kind of song do you think they’re working on? Dance and upbeat? Or more midtempo and rnb? Tell us what you think by leaving a comment below.

OVER the last few months the four Filipino-American R&B singers from the San Francisco Bay Area known as Legaci have appeared on some of the biggest stages of American pop. There they were, belting perfect four-part harmony on “Saturday Night Live,” finger-snapping and line-dancing like the Temptations on “The View,” “Ellen” and “Today,” and crooning to a hysterical, sold-out crowd of 15,000 at the annual KIIS-FM Wango Tango blowout in Los Angeles. (They took the stage just after Kesha and Adam Lambert, just before Ludacris and Usher.) Read the full story
