Our Top 10 Fergie Songs lists looks at the work of one of the most successful female singers of the past twenty years. The Black Eyed Peas made a very smart move when they hired Fergie to become their co-lead singer in the early 200s0. Fergie has a voice and presence that is hard to match by anyone. There is just something really special about Fergie. You can’t take your eyes of her when she is up on that stage. Her presence is so strong that it can almost overwhelm that powerful voice of hers. And what a voice. She is probably one of the most underrated singers in the business. The songs she she has recorded with the Black Eyed Peas as well as her solo career would become some of the biggest hit singles of the past two decades. Oh yes, it’s been oh so Fergalicious!
Since we have already released a top 10 Black Eyed Peas songs list, this Fergie songs list will focus just on the music Fergie has released as a solo artist. Fergie was born Stacy Ann Ferguson in the mid 1970s. Her married name is Fergie Duhamel. While some may think that Fergie is from England, she is actually from California. Fergie’s first major label recording contract was with a three female singer fronted singing group called Wild Orchid. The group released three albums with Fergie that didn’t really sell well. She left Wild Orchid in 2001 and joined the Black Eyed Peas where she would have phenomenal success on both a commercial and artistic level.
In the music business there are the incredible female vocalists like Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande, and Adele. There are the great female rappers like Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliot and Cardi B to name a few of the best. Your usually either one or the other. Fergie has always stood out because she could sing and rap on the same levels as those we just mentioned. Her talents are simply just stunning. Our Top 10 Fergie songs list looks to define her talents as well as her best songs. Even though Fergie has released only two studio albums, both records were filled with so many big time hits, it’s tough to only choose ten from just those two albums. Additionally, Fergie has collaborated with so many other artists so there are many great recordings to choose from. This won’t be easy, but we know it will be tons of fun reviewing all these great Fergie songs.
# 10 – At Night I Pray
We thought we would open up our Fergie songs list with a sample of her career before she joined the Black Eyed Peas and ever released a solo record.The song “At Night I Pray,” was a single released when Fergie was a member of the all girl group Wild Orchid. Somewhat styled after 80s groups like Expose and Sweet Sensation, Wild Orchid had a more of an adult contemporary sound than those 80s groups.
