"The Voice Philippines" season 1 alumna Jessica Reynoso shared how close she is now with the international pop group Black Eyed Peas, and gave her opinion on Fergie's absence from the group.
In an exclusive interview with us, following the story of her inclusion in BEP's new music video "Ring the Alarm," Jessica opened up on her relationship with the three male members of BEP, Will.i.am, Taboo, and her former "The Voice PH" coach Apl.de.ap.
She said, "They’re actually more of like big brothers to me. They give me all these great advices. And if we’re not in the studio recording or shooting videos, we eat out most of the time. With Apl.de.ap, we go to the gym."

After her stint in "The Voice PH" in 2013, Apl.de.ap kept his promise to Jessica and helped her launch a musical career, and Jessica is thankful for that.
She shared, "[Apl.de.ap gave me] so much international exposure. He made a lot of things possible. He introduced me to Will.i.am and I got to be featured on their song. It’s like a dream come true 'cause growing up, me and my friends used to dance to their songs. And now I’m performing with them."
Jessica being part of the video also sparked the question of her replacing the only female member of BEP, Fergie, who is no longer included in the group's latest project.
To that, Jessica commented, "I think Fergie never left. She’s always part of the BEP family. She’s just busy working on her own music and projects right now."
The Fil-Am singer did not confirm anything but said, "Right now, I’ve just been working and performing with [BEP] a lot."
She also added that there are more collaborations slated between her and the BEP! "Yes po, so grateful. Can’t wait for it to come out 🏽️ "
Congratulations on your career, Jessica!
