I’ve got to be completely honest: I can’t really criticize any song that contains an interpolation of JJ Fad’s “Supersonic,” one of the most addictively underrated pop-rap tracks of my youth. And so it is that “Fergalicious,” the second single from Fergie’s solo debut, The Dutchess, gets the Slezak stamp of approval. Is it lyrically brilliant? With declarations like, “All the time I turn around, brothers gather ‘round/Always lookin’ at me up and down, lookin at my uhhh,” I have to admit it’s not. Are there tracks on The Dutchess that better showcase Fergie’s pipes? Most certainly – and here’s hoping “Clumsy” eventually gets its due at radio. But does “Fergalicious” make me want to forget the fact that I’m O to the L to the D, and head to the nearest club to shake my groove thing? Absofergalutely, PopWatchers! Now whether or not the upcoming video for “Fergalicious,” featuring a bathing-suit-clad Fergie wrestling with two other chicks in some sort of pastry batter, propels the song to “London Bridge” ubiquity, or earns her the unfortunate nickname of “Chocolate-Covered Pea,” well, I leave that up to you. You can get a sneak-peek at the clip right now at AOL Music. Yes, Fergie-Ferg pops out of a cake. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
