The Dutchess - Fergie
Advantages: full of attitude and sexy!
Disadvantages: None, this album is brilliant!
Fergie, originally from the black eyed peas, reached out for a solo pop/r & b album which she released in 2006. 'Fergalicious', 'Clumsy', 'Big Girls Don't Cry' and 'Glamorous' would have been her released singles on this album. This album, named 'The Dutchess', was labelled correctly as Fergie exudes confidence and sexiness. 'Fergalicious' is a relatively fast paced track, with fergie explaining how 'fergalicious' she is, but how she isn't 'promiscuous', which are very clever lyrics. In this song she explains her relationship with the opposite sex and also her relationship with her personal body image confidently, by saying 'they want a taste of what i got, i'm fergalicious.' Clumsy is a funny tune, showing Fergie's good sense of humour, as she explains she is clumsy because she is falling in love, and this is a very upbeat track with lots of rhythm. 'London Bridge' is yet another upbeat track with Fergie singing about herself. 'Pedestal' is about how people class themselves as better than you are without good reasoning, which is another independant song as the subject matter isn't constantly sung about. In Fergie's songs there is a lot of use of drums in the background that make her songs so upbeat and sort of 'awakening.' 'Glamorous' is a track describing her glamorous lifestyle and was a very tuneful single, Fergie sings very quickly on this track and it is almost like a rap, but slightly slower. 'Big Girls Don't Cry' is perhaps the most laidback tune on the album, with it's relaxing melody and slow beat. 'Mary Jane Shoes' is also a bit like this as it has a happy, relaxing beat with drums in the background again. So Fergie's album exudes sex appeal and is very upbeat, but her tracks are also versatile as a couple of the songs including 'Mary Jane Shoes' and 'Big Girls Don't Cry' are slower paced, happier songs that you could really relax to. Brilliant album!
Summary: Tuneful R & B with heart and sex appeal!
