You already know Fergie, right? The one who’s kept us waiting 11 long years for her sophomore album? The lead vocalist in the Black Eyed Peas? The one who’s scored five top five hits down under, including a No.1?
Yes, that Fergie.
Well that Fergie has a brand new single out called ‘You Already Know’ and it features a guest rap appearance by one Nicki Minaj.
One of the issues here is that Fergie HAS been away from the charts for so long that it’ll be hard for her to re-enter them. Case in point : this single is nowhere to be seen in the iTunes top 200 down under. She really needed to relaunch with a massive sonic boom.
Sadly ‘You Already Know’ isn’t a massive sonic boom.
It’s enjoyable and all; littered with ’90s club beats and Fergie rapping. Then more rap from Nicki. There’s seemingly not a lot in terms of hook.
You already know that we reckon that whatever she was aiming for with this song… she missed. It’s a bit of a hot mess.
