Dou­ble take

Fergie’s back and on form

DRUM - - Chill Out -

It feels like for­ever since we’ve had any new mu­sic from Fergie. Her solo de­but, The Dutchess, dropped way back in 2006 but fi­nally she’s back with even more Fer­ga­li­cious good­ness in the aptly ti­tled Dou­ble Dutchess.

The 13-track al­bum is a mix of hip-hop in­fused pop, R&B and bal­lads. The combo might sound ran­dom, but Fergie re­minds us this is not un­like The Dutchess.

“The com­mon thread was that [the tracks] are all or­ganic to me. I can’t put out an al­bum of just one style of mu­sic – of what’s ‘on trend’. I would feel like a fraud,” the singer told En­ter­tain­ment Weekly.

Dou­ble Dutchess fea­tures guest ap­pear­ances by Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj.

The 42-year-old mom of one’s sec­ond al­bum has been a long time com­ing, but it’s prac­ti­cally guar­an­teed to spawn hits – four sin­gles have al­ready dropped, and more are sure to come.

Fer­ga­li­cious and fierce – newly sin­gle Fergie is back with a bang.
