RBD members will record a song with popular musical group The Black Eyed Peas, which they will include in the European and Asian editions of their English-language CD, Rebels.
According to Christian Chávez, the idea to make beautiful music together came from Taboo, the Black Eye Peas’ male vocalist, who attended an RBD performance in Los Angeles.
“It was very funny because Taboo took his daughters to the RBD concert in Los Angeles, and afterwards, backstage, he told me that he is very proud of Mexico, that we Mexicans are accomplishing so much in the world, and that’s when he told me: ‘Hopefully, we’ll get to do something together someday.’ The offer was up in the air for a while and it finally happened,” Chávez told Mexico’s Reforma newspaper.
“Later, he got in touch with the record companies to make it happen, the duo with The Black Eyed Peas. This says a lot about him. He is a very simple, humble guy who loves Mexico. There were lots of talks, but now it will come true,” he added proudly.
The recording of the song will also be a reunion of sorts for all The Black Eyed Peas members, who have been working on individual projects lately.
“I think it’s a great accomplishment,” Chávez said. “I think Fergie will also be there. We will get together in the U.S. It will be a new song, with a unique style that will mix their music with ours. I think it will be included in the versions of the Rebels CD that will come out in Asia and Europe.”
