Fergie ft. will.i.am – ‘Fergalicious’

fergalicious-single-2

 

Fergie is one of the more… inconsistent pop stars out there. While her lows may be very lows, her highs are severely underrated. Superficially, ‘Fergalicious’ is the dumbest thing, but its construction is super tight. Sampling from ‘Supersonic’ by J. J. Fad, will.i.am adds an infectious beat (although I’m not a fan of the swarm-like strings in the intro/chorus).

The real star of ‘Fergalicious’, however, is Fergie herself: flow, clever rhymes and the persona to pull off a song about being super hot. I totally buy it – which is essential in making this song work.
