From The Vault: Fergie – ‘Glamourous’

From the very moment she’d been heard singing lead vocals on ‘Shut Up’ with the Black Eyed Peas, the masses figured out that it was only a matter of time before Fergie pursued a career of her own.

Three years later, the songstress unleashed her solo debut, ‘The Dutchess’. A worldwide smash, the LP spawned five Billboard top 5 hits, including three #1 records.

This week’s From The Vault is dedicated to the album third single, the Ludacris-assisted ‘Glamorous’.

With producer Polow Da Don revealing that the instrumental was initially offered to Gwen Stefani (as a remix to her track ‘Luxuriou’s), this cut serves as solid proof that one person’s trash is indeed another’s treasure. For after Ms. Stefani’s refusal, it went on to become not only one of Fergie’s biggest hits (BEP catalogue included), but also one of 2007 highest sellers.

Although the “I’m-still-the-same-even-though-I-have-money” theme has been done to death and will undeniably continue to live on, Fergie-Ferg’s take on the subject sounds surprisingly “legit”. Trading her trademark belting for a  frank, almost talky tone, she seems rather detached from that “flossy” world that is the showbiz industry (whether actually true or not is another question).

The accompanying video compliments the song’s lyrics and production – albeit a bit too literally. Indeed, the singer is depicted living the high-life, movie sets and all, while reminiscing on her humble start.

With the Black Eyed Peas on hiatus, Ms. Ferguson is reported to use that time to concentrate on her family and not to further her promising solo endeavours. As such, for those who were waiting for some more Fergalicious flavour, you’ll have to wait a little bit more. Whether the industry will welcome her back as openly as they embraced her initial foray into solo stardom will be interesting to see.

JLS Land 5th #1

jls 2a e1309881637623 JLS Land 5th #1

British boyband JLS continue to prove their naysayers wrong, after scoring yet another chart topper with their latest release ‘She Makes Me Wanna’.

The colourful four will be celebrating tonight following the announcement that they nabbed what serves as their 5th #1 single on the Official UK Singles Chart. Aston and co’s previous chart topping efforts include ‘Everybody In Love’ and ‘The Club Is Alive’.

At this point it’s as clear as a number of other things about the group that they can release whatever they want and it’ll still sell by the bucketload. That said, the truth of the matter is that not every act needs to deliver on a critically acclaimed tip. There is, as their success shows, space enough for cheese.
