Joanne The Scammer Stars In Fergie’s “Tension” Video

Fergie & Nicki's 'You Already Know' Video
Fergie and Nicki Minaj serve looks in their sleek and sexy 'You Already Know' video.

Everything that could go wrong did go wrong with Fergie’s Double Dutchess. (There were endless delays, a last-minute label change and a calamitous leak, for starters). As such, it wasn’t exactly a surprise when the album debuted at a less-than-regal number 19 on the Billboard 200. While this is definitely a case of a sequel that falls well short of the original, there is still a lot to love about it. “Like It Ain’t Nuttin'” goes ridiculously hard, “You Already Know” is a banger for the ages and “Tension” stands out as the LP’s big dance-pop moment.

Produced by Alesso, “Tension” is futuristic disco in the mold of Janet Jackson’s (criminally underrated) “Rock With U” and Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors.” It throbs along nicely on a bed synths while Fergie sings about burning off a little steam on the dance floor. It took a couple of listens to really click for me, but now I’m obsessed and wondering why it wasn’t rolled out out as a single. Anyway, the video dropped yesterday (October 4) and it’s a skateboard-themed affair featuring a cameo by Joanne The Scammer. Watch up top.
