“Black Eyed Peas” star Taboo, best known for adding to the band’s top tunes with myriad choruses of “yeah, yeah, yeah,” is singing all the way to the bank this Christmas.

The musician, who scored an offer on his Altadena home just six days after putting it on the market last month, has wrapped up the sale for $2.23 million, or $50,000 over the asking price, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Taboo, whose real name is Jaime Gomez, bought the house for $2.2 million in 2007.

Built in the 1940s and updated in 2007, the 4,555-square-foot home has five bedrooms, 5.75 bathrooms — whatever that means — and a recording studio with soundproofing. It features beamed ceilings, a two-way fireplace and hardwood floors. Outside, there are multiple patios and balconies.

Taboo’s listing agents were Vicky Botsford of Partners Trust and Thomas Atamian of Dilbeck Estates. The buyer was represented by Sharon Verani of Sotheby’s International Realty. [LAT]Cathaleen Chen
