Her lawyer claims that she is doing so to “conform to the first name which she is commonly and professionally known as, and has been for many years.” On January 6, 2014, it was announced, again, that Fergie was beginning the process of her second studio album. She stated in an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest that will.i.am will be handling the production, with release through Interscope.

A new single from Fergie, titled “L.A. Love (La La)”, was released to contemporary hit radio on September 30, 2014. The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 97 and peaking at number 27. As of November 30, 2014, it has peaked at number 16 on Rhythmic Songs, number eight on Hot Rap Songs, number 24 on Digital Songs and number 20 on Pop Songs radio chart.

On June 2, 2017, a Billboard article rumoured that Fergie was departing from the Black Eyed Peas.

Band frontman will.i.am dismissed this, but stated that Fergie was taking a break from the group opting to concentrate on her solo career whilst the remaining members are working on a side project. After much anticipation, the pre-order of Double Dutchess was made available on August 25, 2017 along with instant downloads of “Hungry” and “You Already Know”, collaborations with Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj respectively, the latter being the fourth single of the album.

On September 16, 2017, Fergie performed a solo set live from the Rock in Rio stage in Rio de Janeiro for over a hundred thousand people with surprise guests Pabllo Vittar, Sergio Mendes and Gracinha Leporace. Double Dutchess was finally released on September 22, 2017. On February 18, 2018, will.i.am confirmed Fergie’s departure from the band, in an interview with the Daily Star.

At the 2018 NBA All-Star Game, Fergie performed a controversial rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner”, which People described as a “slowed-down jazzy rendition” and Deadline reported it as being “bluesy” and “breathy”. She would later acknowledge that “clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone.”

Fergie Duhamel The Black Eyed Peas

The Black Eyed Peas were recording their third album, Elephunk (2003), when will.i.am invited Fergie to try out for a song called “Shut Up”. She secured the gig and instantly bonded with the trio, going on to record five additional songs on the album. The following spring, shortly before Elephunk came out, Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine offered Fergie a permanent spot to take over vocal duties and fill the void left by background singer Kim Hill’s departure in 2000.

In a positive review of The Black Eyed Peas’ new-found style, Rolling Stone noted that since 2002, when the group “hired a blond bombshell named Stacy ‘Fergie’ Ferguson and gave up their pursuit of backpack-rapper cred, they have made a kind of spiritual practice of recording futuristic songs – a total aesthetic commitment that extends from their garish wardrobes to their United Colors of Benetton worldview.”

From Elephunk came “Where is the Love?”, which became The Black Eyed Peas’ first major hit: it peaked at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the charts in several other countries. The album subsequently spawned “Shut Up”, which topped the charts in many markets. The third single from the album, “Hey Mama”, reached the top 10 in several European countries and later peaked at number twenty-three in the United States. In 2004.

Their next album, Monkey Business, was released on June 7, 2005, and debuted at number two on the U.S. Billboard 200 albums chart, selling over 295,000 copies in its first week and was later certified triple platinum by the RIAA. Their next and last commercially released single from the album was “Pump It”, which borrows much of its sound from “Misirlou”, specifically Dick Dale’s version; it peaked at number 8 in Australia but 18 in America.

The album’s first single, “Don’t Phunk with My Heart”, was a hit in the United States, reaching number three on the U.S. Hot 100 and earned them another Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. “Don’t Lie”, the second single from the album, saw success on the U.S. Hot 100, reaching No. 14, although becoming somewhat more successful in the UK and Australia, reaching a peak of No.6 in both countries. “My Humps”, another song from the album, immediately achieved commercial success in the U.S. and fairly substantial radio play despite the sexually suggestive lyrics, reaching number three on the U.S. Hot 100 and number one in Australia, making it their fourth Australian number one single.

However, many mocked the song for its poor lyrical content; John Bush, writing for AllMusic, described it as “one of the most embarrassing rap performances of the new millennium”. In autumn 2005, The Black Eyed Peas toured with Gwen Stefani, as supporting act. In December 2005, they embarked on the “European Tour”. In March 2006, The Black Eyed Peas toured again, as the featured headliner for the Honda Civic Tour.
