Unfortunately for Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am, he has never encountered the type of solo success enjoyed by his bandmate Fergie. Perhaps getting some big names for his upcoming new album ‘#willpower’ may drum up interest for the project. At least, that is what he’s hoping for. In addition to his Jennifer Lopez and Mick Jagger-assisted first single ‘The Hardest Ever’, he has revealed that Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, Shakira and Nicole Scherzinger will serve as guest features on the forthcoming project.
He says: “I have a song with Alicia Keys – me, Alicia and Swedish House Mafia. Me and Shakira have been trying to finish the stuff we started, and me and Britney is really crazy. I made this song with Nicole Scherzinger that you would never expect. This classic piece of music that I did with Nicole, it’s beautiful. That girl sings like I’ve never heard anybody sing like that in pop culture”. Sounds good on paper, and I’ll leave it at that.
