Charlie And Meghan's "Marvin Gaye" Video
Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor spark a make-out frenzy in their "Marvin Gaye" video.

Fergie returned in 2014 with her first (non-soundtrack) single in six years, and then promptly disappeared again. Which is strange because “L.A. Love (La La)” was a hit. Despite mixed reviews, the track reached number 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number three in the UK. That’s pretty impressive when you consider than fellow comeback queens Gwen Stefani, Madonna and Mariah Carey struggled to chart at all. Happily, it looks like the 40-year-old is back in the studio.

“Making a jam with Fergie today,” Charlie Puth tweeted last night (June 24). “It’s very sexy.” He also shared a snap from their session. The “See You Again” chart-topper is an interesting choice of collaborator. He has dabbled in R&B (the 23-year-old co-wrote Trey Songz’s “Slow Motion”), but is better known for his retro-soul sound. See debut single “Marvin Gaye,” which is starting to gain momentum on radio. Regardless of how this collaboration turns out, it’s great that Fergie’s forever-delayed sophomore album is still happening.
