BMG IS FEELING FERGALICIOUS

BMG just announced that the company has entered into a worldwide partnership with the 8x Grammy-winning, multi-platinum star Fergie and her newly formed record label Dutchess Music.

Double Dutchess—expected to begin its roll-out at the end of summer—will serve as the first full-length, solo release since 2006's five-times-platinum debut, The Dutchess.

As for songs from The Dutchess, "Fergalicious" and "Big Girls Don't Cry" are both four-times platinum, "Glamorous" is three-times platinum and "Clumsy" and "London Bridge" are both two-times platinum.

“This new era, which includes starting my own label and creating a global partnership with BMG, is a dream come true," shared Fergie. "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 is part of an elite group of talented artists who continue to evolve and redefine the meaning of originality," said BMG U.S. President Repertoire & Marketing Zach Katz, who has not been able to stop singing the lyrics to "Glamorous" since the news broke. "From her creativity and style to her stature in pop culture, simply put, there’s only one Fergie.”

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