The Black Eyed Peas may still be on Interscope, but Fergie is no longer there as a solo artist. It’s been announced that the singer-songwriter and the label made the mutual decision to part ways with one another.

Fergie has since formed her own record label, Dutchess Music, thorugh a partnership with BMG. Because of this, her second solo studio album, Double Dutchess, will finally be released this summer. Take a look at what Jon Cohen, the Executive Vice President of BMG, had to say below:

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

Fergie also released a statement, revealing that she now wants to help new artists and that she wants to evolve as a businesswoman:

“This new era, which includes starting my own label and creating a global partnership with BMG, is a dream come true. 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!”

As a solo artist, Fergie has sold 8 million albums and over 15 million singles worldwide.

As a fan of hers since her early days in Wild Orchid, I am VERY excited to see what her new journey brings and I cannot wait to get my hands on Double Dutchess!
