EDITORS’ NOTES

Fergie’s debut solo album is an opulently appointed tour of pop's preceding half-century. "Fergalicious" is an ultra-modern update of J.J. Fad's "Supersonic," and "Clumsy" borrows from Little Richard's "The Girl Can't Help It," while "Mary Jane Shoes" nods to Bob Marley before it goes tearing off into ska punk. The wounded vocal showcase "Big Girls Don't Cry" plants its flag in power-ballad territory, but no matter the mood, will.i.am's production is uniformly sparkling, and Fergie's formidable voice and winking charisma tie the disparate styles together with a diamond-encrusted bow.

About Fergie

Like Martika, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Rahsaan Patterson, Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson got her first major break as a youngster on the television program Kids Incorporated. Born in 1975, she did voice work for The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, as well as commercials, prior to becoming a Kids Incorporated regular from 1984 through 1989. Along with Stefanie Ridel and fellow Kids Incorporated alum Renee Ilene Sandstrom, Ferguson formed Wild Orchid, a teen pop group that released a pair of albums during the late '90s. A few years after the group's split, Ferguson joined the Black Eyed Peas in time to record 2003's Elephunk. She became central to the group's mainstream success ("Let's Get It Started," "My Humps") and released her first solo album, The Dutchess, during September 2006. ~ Andy Kellman
