In a surprising move, it has been reported that Fergie has officially left Interscope – her longtime recording home.
Billed as a “mutual decision,” the star’s departure ends a ten year tenure at the Universal Music imprint, which is also home to her group The Black Eyed Peas.
The news comes after a start-stop roll-out of Fergie’s second studio album ‘Double Duchess’ – which is still yet to hit stores.
Though confirmation is incoming, sources reveal that the singer is moving to BMG to launch her own record label. Said indie imprint has enjoyed chart-topping success in recent years with releases from the likes of Janet Jackson [‘Unbreakable’] and Blink 182.

Clearly something has been awry between Fergie and her former home.
She launched the still blazing ‘LA Love (La La)’ in 2014. Twenty Fourteen. And all that’s followed has been a succession of songs – varying in quality – that were poorly rolled out and not promoted at all.
Where the blame lay is anyone’s guess.
However, it’s – at the very least – warming to hear that she’s making moves of some sort.
