“Life Goes On” for Fergie.
The 41-year-old singer released a new single on Friday, singing about what sounds like an apathetic relationship.
“Life goes on, with or without you/Damn it, baby, what you gonna do,” she croons on the mid-tempo track. “You could go or you could stay/Who cares anyway?” About two-and-a-half minutes in, Fergie even breaks into one of her signature raps. Listen below!
“Life Goes On” evokes a similar feeling to her 2006 hit, “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” and seems to mark a complete 180 from her last single, the fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek “M.I.L.F. $ .”
While the new song’s lyrics hardly touch on any hot-button issues, its release comes at a time of, in Fergie’s words, “madness,” following the results of the U.S. election this week.
“In the midst of all the madness, remember life is beautiful,” Fergie wrote on Thursday, teasing the song via Instagram.
The pop star was looking decidedly patriotic in a red, white and blue ensemble over the summer as she and husband Josh Duhamel brought their 3-year-old son, Axl Jack, to his very first Los Angeles Dodgers game! Dad even threw out the first pitch in honor of his film, Spaceman. See the family’s adorable outing below.
