“Meet Me Halfway” is the third single off the latest album, The E.N.D., from Black Eyed Peas. It is written by Keith Harris, Allan Pineda, William Adams, Stacy Ferguson, Downtown Music Publishing’s own Sylvia Gordon, J. Baptiste and Jaime Gomez, and the song went to #1 in the UK on November 15, 2009.
Fergie told the Daily Mail that when she was recording her vocals for “Meet Me Halfway,” she “transported herself back to 1985, when she was 10 and saw Madonna in concert for the first time on the Virgin tour. She took on Madonna’s persona in that song as an homage.” Elements of the song, namely the melody during the bridge, are taken from Cyndi Lauper’s song “Time After Time”.
The music video, directed by Ben Mor (director of “I Gotta Feeling”), premiered on October 12, 2009. Check it out!
