Posted By on March 9, 2010

     Frontman for the Black Eyed Peas, will.i.am, recently talked about signing singer Kelis to his label, saying she has the potential to become a superstar. According to Will, Kelis can reach the large international audience. "Kelis has always been a best kept secret," Will said in an interview. "The cool people know Kelis. But the majority of people just know 'Milkshake.'…I would like Kelis to show she's an international sensation. She can be big. A lot of people think big is being on the radio or that being big is having a show in London, France and sometimes Japan. But that ain't international…that's just three countries."

     "The Black Eyed Peas are big; the Black Eyed Peas are international. I think Kelis can be that big. As big as the Peas. A lot of time rappers have these labels and they don't let their artist become bigger than them. I've proven that's not me. Fergie is huge. When Fergie blew up she was bigger than me! I believe Kelis can do the same."
