Your cheat sheet to the week's new releases featuring Grace, MØ & Allie X.

In 2014, Fergie revealed that she worked with Nicki Minaj on her follow-up to 2005 debut The Duchess. That collaboration, along with the rest of her new album, has been years in the making.

Last night (May 20) in Lisbon, their song finally got its live debut at music festival Rock in Rio. It appears to sample Lyn Collins‘ 1972 single “Think (About It),” as heard in Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock‘s hip-hop hit “It Takes Two.” Regardless, Fergie’s latest has a more laidback vibe than the banger she teased yesterday, though her verses are just as cocky.

Curiously, Nicki’s voice only pops up at the end, when she says, “Make some noise for my girl Fergie Ferg.” But as Fergie has made clear this past week, we can expect to see and hear much, much more from her soon.

Watch Fergie perform her new song at Rock in Rio below.
