Fergie Says No Solo Album, For Now

 Fergie Says No Solo Album, For Now

Fergie has never been shy about stepping out of her role as the leading lady in the Black Eyed Peas to pursue her solo career. Her smash 2006 solo album, The Dutchess, proved that Fergie could rule the charts on her own. But right now, the Dutchess says she’s focused on her work with the group and has no plans to go solo again anytime soon.

“Definitely, in my lifetime, [but] not in the near future, no,” she told reporters at the Glamour Women of The Year Event on Monday in New York City.

Fergie admitted that she has too many other balls to juggle at the moment to find time to work on more of her own music: “We have The Beginning, which is coming out now, so I’m all about Black Eyed Peas right now… and Slash, my inner rock chick coming out in that world. I’ve got my footwear that I’m concentrating on; that’s a big [project].” Fergie appeared on Slash’s solo LP this year, singing on the track “Beautiful Dangerous.”

On the Glamour red carpet, Fergie also dished on The Beginning, due out November 30. “You should expect deeper, a little bit darker electro beats and a little bit more of relationship issues on this one,” she explained. “A lot of funny stuff, as well.”

The group already has given fans a taste of what that means in the form of the album’s first single, the super-techno dance track “The Time (Dirty Bit),” which samples the iconic theme from “Dirty Dancing,” “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.”

Fergie said the song sums up the group’s current vibe: “I think it’s crazy the way the world works, because ['Dirty Dancing' star] Jennifer Grey is now on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ and for some reason that song ['(I've Had) The Time of My Life'] kind of meant something to us, because we have had an amazing run.

“I mean, it just keeps going, and it keeps going. And we really feel like we have had the time of our lives together. And that song reminds me of [Grey] and ‘Dirty Dancing’ and that whole time, so it all fit.”
