Throwback Thursday ‘Glamorous’ by Fergie feat. Ludacris (2007)
Jack Harlow's latest single "First Class" samples Fergie so that was my cue to educate the masses about the original!
"Glamorous" by Fergie was the third single off of her debut solo album, The Dutchess.
Just like Gwen Stefani helped everybody learn how to spell bananas with "Hollaback Girl," Fergie is teaching us how to spell "Glamorous."
Stacy Ferguson AKA Fergie was originally in the girl group Wild Orchid then became a member of Black Eyed Peas and then in 2007, she went solo!
The music video was directed by Dave Meyers and features Ludacris, of course. The video also has cameos from Black Eyed Peas bandmate apl.d.ap., as well as Freddy Rodriguez, Alfonso Ribeiro, and B-Real from Cypress Hill.
The music video starts back in 1994 and shows Fergie making her way to stardom and becoming "Glamorous" yet staying humble.
According to Wikipedia, "'Glamorous' peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and became Fergie's second number one hit on the chart as a solo artist. The song also became her third best-selling song in the United States, amassing sales of over 3,000,000 copies as of August 2012, and earning a double platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)."
"Glamorous" also went to #1 on the US Dance Club Chart, #2 on the Mainstream Top 40, and #3 on the Rhythmic chart. It was #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the entire year of 2007.
