Fergie’s Second Solo Album: Out In March?
Last summer, Fergie assured fans that her long-(like, really long)-awaited follow-up to 2006 solo outing The Dutchess would be released by the end of 2015. Alas, nothing in pop is an exact science, and the latest bit of information, per Women’s Wear Daily, is that the Black Eyed Peas diva was in Paris last weekend “to shoot the cover and press materials for her long-awaited second solo album,” which, the publication says, is “due in March.”
Other bits of info reported by WWD:
* The photo shoot for her album was done by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, who have also done high profile pics for Madonna and Lady Gaga in the past.
* Outfits for the shoot were provided by designers including Tom Ford, Gianvito Rossi, Rosamosario and Raf Simons.
* Carine Roitfeld styled the shoot, while Giovanni Bianco was said to be in charge of creative direction.
* Fergie was scheduled to shoot one music video in Paris today (January 26), and another in London later this week.
Last summer “See You Again” singer/Grammy nominee Charlie Puth discussed having been in the studio with Fergie and recording a track he described as “‘My Humps’ 2015.” Prior to that, 40-year-old songbird Fergie released the DJ Mustard-produced single “L.A. Love (La La)”, which became a Top 5 hit in the UK and landed at #27 here in the States.
By the time this album does arrive — if it arrives — nearly a full decade will have passed since the hit-packed The Dutchess was released. Do you think music consumers will still be feeling just as Fergalicious in 2016 as they were in 2006?
