Black Eyed Peas are rumoured to be about to announce their new singer is Ashanti.

Fergie has already announced she will leave the band to start a family. Their last show is November 23rd.

The Black Eyed Peas have also indicated they will take a break as well but the word now doing the rounds is that R&B singer Ashanti is tipped to be announced as their new singer.

Ashanti is currently on tour with Black Eyed Peas.

Fergie joined Black Eyed Peas in 2002. Prior to that, the group had been around for 7 years without a female singer.

Ashanti would make for an interesting inclusion for the group. She has had her own string of hits including 'Foolish', 'Rock Wit U', 'Only U' and 'Happy' but has been absent from the chart since 2005.

Her last album was 'The Declaration' in 2008. It generated one minor hit 'The Way That I Love You' (no. 37 USA). A new studio album from Ashanti is due early next year.
