Fergie's Comeback LP Is Called 'Double Dutchess'
Fergie's long-overdue sophomore LP is called 'Double Dutchess.' Find out more.

Fergie’s decade-in-the-making sophomore LP Double Dutchess might be getting a second quarter release after all. A member of her team revealed that the album is almost finished on Instagram last night (March 27). “In the studio putting the live finishing touches on #DoubleDutchess with two of my favorite people in the world @fergie @terracemartin and his incredible crew of musicians bringing that Compton/ South Central Swag to Hacienda Heights favorite daughter!!!” Venus Brown captioned a studio pic.

He also posted a snap of Tony Maserati mixing the album. It will be interesting to see what Fergie comes up with. Lead single “L.A. Love” hinted at a contemporary pop sound with a hip-hop edge. The DJ Mustard-produced banger was something of an acquired taste (I loved it), but it fared well at pop radio and eventually peaked at number 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 — a placing that is yet to be bettered by any of the other comeback queens. (Hello Janet Jackson and Gwen Stefani).

The 40-year-old’s debut LP The Dutchess was released way back in September, 2006. The album delivered five top five hits — a record until Katy Perry racked up five with Teenage Dream — and sold eight million copies worldwide. Needless to say, expectations are high for the sequel.
