Album: The Dutchess (2006)
Charted: 6 1


  • Similar in sentiment to the Jennifer Lopez hit "Jenny From The Block," this song finds Fergie singing about how even though she enjoys a glamorous lifestyle, she's still the same person and continues to value her friends and family over fame and fortune. She makes sure to thank her fans for all they have given her. >>

  • Sierra from Lancaster, PaI agree with Fergie. It is not fair to be caught up in fame and fortune because then you won't know all of your family as much as u should.
  • Shannon from Hamilton, OhIt sounds to me like she's saying it's cool that she doesn't have to worry about money, but the fact that she has a lot of money isn't going to change her, or how she lives her life. Wow, what a run-on sentence.
  • E from Boston, MaActually Sam, the guy who actually sings the line is speaking in the roll of someone who marries another just for their money.
  • Sam from Chicago, Ilthis is a nice song but..... there is one thing i dont get at ALL why does she say if you dont got no money take your broke a** home?
    is she saying that she doesnt like people who dont get 5,000,000 a month?
  • Yos from Santo Domingo, Dominican RepublicThis track is more honest that J'lo's "jenny from the block".
  • Tim from Columbus, OhSong of the Year, 2007!
