It looks like Fergie’s ready to go solo again…
The 39-year-old part-Mexican American singer and Black Eyed Peas member hasn’t released a solo album in a little more than eight years, but she may finally be returning to the scene with a sequel to her hit album The Dutchess.
Fergie is reportedly working on new music for a sophomore album, as she alluded to during a stop by Chelsea Lately last month, according to Billboard. According to a source, there’s a “good bet” that the album will finally be released in 2015, with a new single possibly coming out before the end of this year.
Billboard has also learned that Mike WiLL Made-It is involved with Fergie’s next full-length studio effort. The hip-hop maestro executive-produced Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz album, and has helmed songs by Rihanna, Ciara and 2 Chainz, among many others.
The Dutchess, released in September 2006, Spawned six hits for Ferguson. It all began with “London Bridge“, then “Fergalicious“, “Glamorous“, “Big Girls Don’t Cry“, “Clumsy” and “Finally.” In December 2007, Blender selected her as the magazine’s woman of the year following her success as a solo artist.
Since The Dutchess’ release, Fergie married actor Josh Duhamel, re-joined the Black Eyed Peas for the group’s blockbuster 2009 album The E.N.D. and gave birth to her first son in 2013. Fergie most recently popped up on “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got),” from last year’s Great Gatsby soundtrack.
