Influencing a generation of stars to follow, Fergie remains pop’s leading lady. In September 2017, the eight-time GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum solo artist released her anxiously awaited visual experience and second full-length album, Double Dutchess—the first release for her own Dutchess Music the label she founded in partnership with BMG during 2017. The Visual Experience quickly captured #1 on iTunes in addition to the album becoming the #1 pop album in the United States, hitting #1 on the Billboard Current Pop Albums Chart, #4 on the Top Independent Albums Chart, and #9 on the Top Albums Chart. It became a runaway smash globally, going Top 10 on iTunes Overall in eight countries and Top 5 on the iTunes Pop Albums Charts in eleven countries. It’s gaining even more steam as she sets her sights on a 2018 world tour. This blockbuster follows up one of the most successful albums of this century The Dutchess, which sold 7.2 million albums and 29 million tracks around the globe and yielded three #1 Billboard Hot 100 hits: “London Bridge,” “Glamorous,” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and Top 5 smashes “Fergalicious” and “Clumsy.” She also remains a driving force in The Black Eyed Peas whose legacy eclipses sales of 35 million records and 60 million tracks over the course of four multi-platinum offerings. Once again, she sets the pace for pop.
You might know a thing or two about Fergie…
You might know she’s an eight-time GRAMMY® Award-winner. You might know her iconic 2006 solo debut, The Dutchess, moved over 8 million albums and over 30 million tracks around the globe. You might know all of the words to Billboard Hot 100 #1 hits like “London Bridge,” “Glamorous,” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry” or Top 5 smashes “Fergalicious” and “Clumsy.” You might know she led The Black Eyed Peas to the pop pantheon with sales of 35 million records and 60 million tracks over the course of four multi-platinum offerings. For all you might know (or might think you know) about Fergie, you’re going to learn a whole hell of a lot more on her second full-length and first visual album for her own label Dutchess Music—Double Dutchess.
Opening Dutchess Music, aligning with BMG for distribution, and signing herself, you’re going to learn that she’s a #boss surrounded by moguls like Maybach Music Group founder Rick Ross. You’re going to learn that she’s a high fashion assassin whose vision has seduced everyone from Italian Vogue creative director Giovanni Bianco to C.R. Fashion book visionary Carine Roitfeld. You’re going to learn she has a wicked sense of humor that’s right at home in smoked-out late night claymation macabre. You’re going to learn she’s the O.G. runway-slaying sex symbol. Free, focused, and fucking shit up again, Double Dutchess shows every side of Fergie—the superstar, the visual artist, the creative director, the label head, the fashion icon, the wife, and, she’ll tell you most importantly, “mom.”
The 13 tracks that make up Double Dutchess tell a story of transformation. It’s not so much caterpillar into butterfly as it is Princess Diana into Wonder Woman, and it starts with the one-two punch of “Hungry” (feat. Rick Ross) and “You Already Know” (featuring Nicki Minaj followed by a one-night premiere of the complete visual album experience in iPic® Theaters.
Fergie is now a global superstar, whose brand extends beyond her music. She launched her debut fragrance, Outspoken, under Avon in May 2010 and has since released three more fragrances.
