Fergie visited Today and was overcome with emotion when she heard some news about her new album. The hosts were excited to share with her that Double Duchess had become the No. 1 album on the iTunes charts. She was dumbfounded and repeatedly asked, “Are you serious?”

For a solid minute, Fergie fought back tears and struggled to maintain her composure.

Fergie joked, “I’m going to ruin all my swag credibility right now.”
