UPDATE // DECEMBER 16:
Allow Fergie to warm up your holiday season with the beach-themed "Life Goes On" music video off her forthcoming album Double Dutchess.
EARLIER // NOVEMBER 14:
Fergie's next Double Dutchess song titled "Life Goes On" has arrived.
Following Fergie's semi-viral lead single "M.I.L.F. $," I had high hopes, but her latest release "Life Goes On" is lackluster.
The mid-tempo jam's tribal-esque production takes inspiration from Skrillex and Justin Bieber's "What Do You Mean," but lacks the glimmer of the Purpose cut. And the lyrics feel amateur, at best. The rare moments she does shine takes place during the rap-sing section; a refreshing throwback to the sassy Fergie Ferg we cherished over the last decade (ugh we're all getting old, so old).
Fergie croons: "Life goes on with or without you / Damnit baby what you gonna do? / You could go or you could stay. Who cares anyway?"
Something's off about it. Or maybe I'm just cynical after this trying week. Really, really though.
She's also filming a music video for it:
