Billboard has named Fergie its 2010 Woman of the Year.
With six Grammys under her belt, the singer, whose real name is Stacy Ferguson, said, “I am humbled and excited to accept the Billboard Woman of the Year Award. Being honored by Billboard is a great career achievement.”
In addition to the success Fergie experienced with her solo album in 2006, Billboard reported that the Black Eyed Peas hold the record for the longest streak of consecutive weeks spent at No. 1 on its Hot 100 chart.
Fergie will take the award home at the Billboard Women in Music event on December 2.
Beyonce took the title home in 2009.
