Black Eyed Peas Sign Worldwide Publishing Deal

The Black Eyed Peas recently inked a worldwide

co-publishing deal with Cherry Lane Publishing, after a bidding war between

several publishing companies over the rights to their latest album, Elephunk.

"This year, we’ve been aggressively diversifying

our client roster and signing the Black Eyed Peas fits perfectly into our business

model," says Cherry Lane President, Aida Gurwicz, "We’re looking forward

to exploiting the many opportunities for the band’s increased exposure that

this record promises."

Each group member is planning solo albums as

well. Group member Taboo recently revealed that he will be working on a Spanish

language project in the near future.
