What ya’ll know about Wild Orchid? Before her days making big hits with The Black Eyed Peas, Fergie (Stacy Ferguson) was a member of the female trio, and the group was signed to RCA in 1994. The trio dropped a self-titled album in 1997 that did really well, but when their second album only sold 200,000 copies worldwide, RCA didn’t want to release their third album. Ferguson left the group because of that, as well as a dangerous drug habit she picked up. She eventually got herself together and auditioned for BEP, and went on to do great things. And we all know that she has had some major solo success as well (“Big Girls Don’t Cry” anyone?).
