Fashion Beats (5:20)

Cover of The Beginning (Deluxe Edition)

From The Beginning (Deluxe Edition)

An undeniably catchy dance number featuring Fergie’s sex-kittenish, Debby Harry-esque vocals. The disco and funk pulse is authentic: Will cribbed a sample of Chic’s 1979 classic “My Forbidden Lover” for this tune. “Fergie’s all like, ‘Faaaaaashion!’” says Will. “It’s crazy fresh!”

According to the Fashion Beats Songfacts, Fergie intentionally sang this in a Debbie Harry manner in tribute to the Blondie singer. She explained to Billboard magazine: “She’s one of my idols. She was at the cusp of hip-hop, singing with Fab 5 Freddy, but you know she has her rocker roots. I love to pay homage to people in songs because these are the people that helped me become who I am.”
