Dutchess Fergie on the other hand recently dealt us a blow with “L.A. Love”, which you may or may not have heard on the radio. Now, we all l loved The Black Eyed Peas. I enjoyed “Boom Boom Pow”, “Meet Me Halfway”, “Imma Be” and “I Gotta Feeling” as much as the rest of the world. But, what I yearned for was a follow up to The Dutchess.
Over the course of eight years since “London Bridges”. We saw a re-release of The Dutchess that included four extra tracks “Labels or Love”, “Barracuda”, a duet with Nelly, “Party People”, and a remix of “Clumsy”.
We saw a misfitted dance pulse of “Feel Alive” on a Step Up Soundtrack and euphoric party peak of “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)” for The Great Gatsby movie. The song is the reason for why I bought the soundtrack. And, Lana Del Rey's “Young and Beautiful” goes without mention.
2006 was a great year. Fergie ruled. Just think about. The start of the reign with “London Bridge”. The heavy sexual innuendo of that song was lost on me for a good bit of time. It took me a while. Just like Flo Rida's “Right Round”. That song is nasty. I can't listen to it the same way, now that I know. What I know about that song.
Then, came “Fergalicious”. What happens when you combine “Fergie” with “Delicious” apparently. The ubiquitous song set in the candy factory and also the song I got turnt to at prom. I thank this song for my life choices, for my excellence in grammar. Where Gwen Stefani taught me how to spell “B-A-N-N-A-N-A”. Fergie with the assistance of Will.I.Am instructed me on “D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S” and “T-A-S-T-E-Y”.
Finally “Glamorous” came to us. A video with guns and gangsters and Ludacris. That was the last time that man was relevant to me. Actually that's not entirely true. I was very intrigued by his reworking of the classic “Barbie Girl” song into “Party Girl”. And, as he instructed. If you ain't got no money, take your broke ass home.
