Fergie Lights Up ‘The Late Show’ With ‘Life Goes On’

The melodic mid-tempo is the latest taste of the Black Eyed Peas diva’s sophomore effort ‘Double Duchess’ – which is due “early 2017.”
Taking to the stage on ‘The Late Show’ this week, Fergie-Ferg offered up a spirited showing of the song. Check it out above.
John Legend Talks New Album, Trump, Obama & More With Jocks&Nerds
John Legend possesses a voice that demands attention and also possesses a perspective that does the same too.
Currently plugging his fifth studio album ‘Darkness & Light,’ the crooner used his interview with Jocks&Nerds to open up about the LP, his foray into TV and Film production, and to share his view on the political landscape post Donald Trump‘s shock win.
On his record:
“While ‘Darkness and Light’ is the name of one of the songs, those words kept coming back to me. There’s a lot of darkness in the world, pain and conflict. But the album also represents the desire to find light, optimism, love and joy in the midst of all that.”
On TV & Film:
“I’d gotten involved with a lot of films as songwriter but when I started my company it was a process that involved finding the right directors, finding the right cast, telling the right stories. And I think a lot of that comes from my own political sensibilities. A lot of the work we’ve been doing reflects a lot of the issues I care about politically. But also there’s simply my love of great storytelling and my love of great music in relation to telling those stories.”
On US politics:
“I think people are already missing the way they (Barack and Michelle) conducted themselves in office. Particularly when you compare them, especially with Trump and how tawdry so much of the campaign has been. I think people are appreciating how scandal-free [Obama’s] Presidency has been and, like I say, appreciating him more and more. And combine that with the fact the economy is doing much better than it was before he came into office. Unemployment’s down, incomes are rising. I think all in all, people are realising he did a pretty great job.”
