When we found out that Fergie was making a musical comeback we were, understandably, very, very excited. The singer hasn’t released a solo album since 2006 (THAT’S 10 YEARS), and doesn’t seem to be too involved with the Black Eyed Peas anymore.
Now Fergie has shared her new single and it’s like a sequel to “Big Girls Don’t Cry (Personal)!”
Called “Life Goes On,” the track is a mid-tempo bop that showcases Fergie’s signature vocals. Complete with very on-trend tropical synths and beats, there’s also a brilliant guitar riff that compliments the chilled nature of the song. There’s even a rapped middle-eight and it’s amazing.
Fergie had previously been teasing the song over social media.
Sharing the song’s artwork, she wrote:
Listen to “Life Goes On” below.
Fergie had previously returned to the music world with her single and viral music video for “M.I.L.F. $”
Featuring Chrissy Teigen, Kim Kardashian, and fellow singer Ciara, the song’s video is totally bonkers.
In comparison, “Life Goes On” is a more subdued affair.
In fact, given the events of the past week, the track is the perfect accompaniment if you need some musical escapism, and we love the lyrics about overcoming adversity and its general air of positivity.
Is it just us, or are you drawing some serious comparisons to Fergie’s 2007 single “Big Girls Don’t Cry (Personal),” which has remained an ultimate jam for 10 years?
“Life Goes On” is the second single to be lifted from Fergie’s upcoming second album, Double Duchess.
The album, which was teased by the singer’s husband, the actor Josh Duhamel, earlier this year, doesn’t have a firm release date yet, but we’re expecting it to be released early next year.
