Single Review: Fergie “M.I.L.F. $”

Fergie is back with new music. After quite the wait, the Trap inspired Hip Hop tune “M.I.L.F. $” (pronounced “Milf Money,” abbreviation for Mother I’d Like to Follow, according to Fergie) has finally arrived. It’s quite the departure for Fergie, even following 2014’s DJ Mustard flavored “L.A. LOVE (La La).”

One thing remains with Fergie. She’s still teaching her fans spelling lessons, just like back in 2006 on “Fergalicious” and “Glamorous.” Some things never change. This time Fergie Ferg instructs listeners on common words such as independent, broke, and paid.

Fergie wants people to remember she’s still ill and capable of versatility. The Black Eyed Peas front woman raps about “working so hard” and just wanting to chill with “all [of her] girls on fleek” and have drinks. Alongside reminding people she can hold a note herself, by singing a bit on the mostly rapped track.

With the new lead single “M.I.L.F. $” marking the most Hip Hop version of Fergie released to radio, how will it perform after such a lengthy break from the scene? If fans were not feeling the vibe of “L.A. LOVE” (#27 peak, 2014) as much as “London Bridge” (#1 peak, 2006) it’s hard to see them liking the transition even deeper, though stranger things have happened. Additionally, with high profile music video cameos expected from Kim Kardashian and Ciara, perhaps the video views can assist the song with streaming points and help it chart well.

Fergie’s sophomore album, Double Dutchess, does not currently have a release date.
