A Certain Long-Awaited Pop Album May Be Out in Just Two Months
And no, I’m not talking about ANTI.
According to our good friends at Idolator (via Women’s Wear Daily), Fergie may be gearing up to release her second solo album, and it may be out as soon as March. According to WWD, Fergie was in Paris last weekend to “shoot the cover and press materials for her long-awaited second so album, due in March.”
WWD also states that Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot shot the cover and that Fergie was photographed wearing outfits by Tom Ford, Gianvito Rossi, Rosamosario, Raf Simons, and others. Carine Roitfeld, apparently, styled the shoot.
Fergie’s first and only (so far) solo album, The Dutchess, was released almost ten years ago, if you can believe it. It sold eight million copies worldwide and included “London Bridge,” “Fergalicious,” “Glamorous,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” and “Clumsy,” all singles that peaked inside the Top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100. They are also all songs you pretended to hate but secretly danced to alone in your room. (Guilty.)
Last year, Fergie released “L.A. Love (La La),” a song that initially sparked a wave of excitement but that ultimately fizzled and failed to click (at least here in the U.S.) Here’s hoping she’ll bring the goods in March.
