Fergie Signs Worldwide Partnership With BMG
May 24, 2017

BMG has announced it has entered into a worldwide partnership with the 8x Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum global superstar Fergie and her newly formed record label Dutchess Music.

Double Dutchess will be the first full-length solo release since her 2006 multi-platinum, smash hit debut The Dutchess and new music is expected to begin its rollout towards the end of the Summer.

Today, Fergie posted a personal message to fans announcing the news.

“This new era, which includes starting my own label and creating a global partnership with BMG, is a dream come true. It’s an opportunity to release my solo music as well as develop and nurture new artists. This next chapter in my career will allow me the independence to evolve both as an artist and as a businesswoman.
BMG has such an incredible legacy in the music industry, and I look forward to working with their very experienced team to make new music, memories and magic!”

Fergie’s first solo album, released late 2006, debuted at Number Two on the Billboard Top 200 and spent 94 weeks on the chart. The Dutchess went on to sell 7.2 million copies and 29 million tracks worldwide. The album spawned three Number One hits on The Hot 100: ‘London Bridge,’ ‘Glamorous,’ and ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry,’ as well as the Top 5 singles ‘Fergalicious’ and ‘Clumsy.’ In 2014 she released the multi-platinum single ‘L.A.LOVE (la la).’  In the summer of 2016 Fergie released the Gold single ‘M.I.L.F. $’ which debuted at Number Two on the iTunes chart and racked up over 170 Million YouTube / Vevo views since its release. Its follow up, ‘Life Goes On,’ was called “essential” by Entertainment Weekly while Vice’s Noisey raved “a perfect banger.”

As a lead singer, Fergie has also released four multi-platinum albums with the Black Eyed Peas, with whom she has sold more than 35 million albums and over 60 million singles worldwide.

Zach Katz, BMG U.S. President Repertoire & Marketing, said, “Fergie is part of an elite group of talented artists who continue to evolve and redefine the meaning of originality. From her creativity and style to her stature in pop culture, simply put, there’s only one Fergie.”

Jon Cohen, BMG EVP Recorded Music, said, “What Fergie has put together with Double Dutchess is so inventive it redefines her as an artist. Her prolific output has already made our collaboration one of my most exciting times with BMG and we can’t wait for its reveal.”
