The wait is over!
Fergie released her first solo single in six years, "L.A. Love (La La)," at midnight Monday. The 39-year-old Black Eyed Peas singer, who was born and raised in Hacienda Heights, Calif., tweeted a picture of herself making music in the recording studio and included an iTunes link. "R u ready 4 this?" she asked her fans.
DJ Mustard produced "L.A. Love (La La)," the debut single from Fergie's untitled sophomore album.
When Fergie attended the iHeartRadio Music Festival Sept. 20, she revealed new music was on the horizon. "It's exactly a month after my [1-year-old son Axl]'s birthday," the singer said. "All these amazing things are happening. It's good vibes. We're sending L.A. love throughout the world. L.A. Love movement."
Fergie released her debut solo album, The Dutchess, in 2006. It featured several hit singles, including "London Bridge," "Fergalicious (feat. will.i.am.)," "Glamorous (feat. Ludacris)" and "Clumsy." As Fergie revealed on Yahoo! Live, "The album's coming! I did two albums with the Peas, then I had The Dutchess, then we had [Black Eyed Peas'] The Beginning, which had 'Boom Boom Pow' and 'I Got a Feeling.'"
The pop star has been working on the follow-up for years. As she told Ryan Seacrest in November 2013, "I've been just in my little creative cave and the ideas come when they come and that's the beauty of it. It's so not forced, so when I do come out with my album, I'm going to be really proud of it." The reason for the delay, she added, was her son's birth. "It was time for me to get a little break and have my kid."
