Fergie is finally back with a new solo single, and she wants you to rep your hometown. Today (Sept. 29) after weeks of teasing, the former Black Eyed Peas singer dropped her new song "L.A. Love (La La)" featuring a beat from DJ Mustard.
As could be assumed from the song's title "L.A. Love (La La)" is by and large a love letter to Fergie's beloved Los Angeles. Though she flies all around the world, from Brooklyn to Moscow to Vegas and Venice, nothing is quite as fresh as L.A., even fellow California city San Diego.
"Every city, every state, every country you know / All around the globe / This is how we roll," Fergie sweetly sings in the pre-chorus before going full-on sassy, pulling in a fake Jamacian patois and singing the names of various cities and, of course, a "La la la la la."
Featuring an infectious, if not semi-recycled, beat from DJ Mustard, there's something simultaneously very irritating and infectious about "L.A. Love." Though the song itself isn't a massive standout, featuring repetitive lyrics and a melody that could have been jacked from any Iggy Azalea single, it's hard not to walk away from the track without humming the melody.
And isn't irritating and infectious kind of Fergie's brand? This IS the woman who gave us the ultimate hate-to-love anthem "London Bridge," after all.

"L.A. Love (La La)" is Fergie's new solo single and her first track since last year's "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)" from The Great Gatsby soundtrack. "L.A. Love" is largely believed to be the lead single from Fergie's second solo album, reportedly due out in 2015. Her last solo effort, The Dutchess was released in 2006.
