After announcing that her new LP will be a visual album, the 42-year-old singer released a hypnotic visuals for the chant-filled song.
Stacy Ferguson a.k.a. Fergie first teased about her collaborative track with Rick Ross, “Hungry”, in May 2016. And now, she has finally released the song in full along with its accompanying music video. While it’s unclear what the theme of the hypnotic black-and-white clip is, it appears to be very symbolic as it features a series of gothic and cryptic images.
“To say it’s complicated, understatement of the year/ Well maybe conflict made it the new flavor in your ear,” Fergie rhymes over the gothic, chant-filled music. “They know that I’m a problem, that’s why everybody scared/ Whatever doesn’t kill you, can make you an ill-ionaire/ Uh, just turn the headphones up.”
The music video for “hungry” comes on the heels of Fergie announcing that “Double Dutchess” will be a visual album. The effort is set to arrive on September 22, while the movie that accompanies the new music will be premiered on September 20.
Besides “Hungry”, Fergie released another new single. Titled “You Already Know”, the dancey song features a verse from Nicki Minaj. Both singles are going to be featured on “Double Dutchess”, which serves as the follow-up to Fergie’s 2006 album “The Dutchess“.
Fergie took her sweet time to work on “Double Dutchess”, as she reportedly had been cooking up the album since three years ago. The effort will be Fergie’s first project since leaving her old label Interscope and creating her own label Dutchess Music a few months ago. “It’s an opportunity to release my solo music as well as develop and nurture new artists,” she previously said. “This next chapter in my career will allow me the independence to evolve both as artist and a businesswoman.”
