The Dutchess Deluxe EP (EP, Explicit)
Released: May 2008
Label: Will I Am / A&M
These four tracks represent the "deluxe" of Fergie's re-released version of The Dutchess -- and the magic she's capable of working. She does some rhyming with Nelly and manages to not only not sound like a dork (always a risk with Fergie- Ferg), but also to make Nelly's sing-song flow sound hip again. She freaking wails like a long-lost Wilson sister on her eerily (almost too perfectly) Ann-esque cover of Heart's "Barracuda." For her most spectacular feat, Fergie takes Sex and the City's kind of lame theme song and turns it into something (almost) as fabulous as Samantha: "Labels or Love."
