Will.i.am – #Willpower

Another album from the guy who must never sleep. If he is not recording and touring with his band the Black Eyed Peas then he is working as a judge on the UK version of The Voice or he is producing music for other artists like Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber and Britney Spears or somehow finding the time to put out his own solo albums. William Adams is one busy guy. This is his fourth solo album over the past twelve years. Known primarily as a songwriter, rapper and producer it is not surprising to see that he has plenty of guest vocalists on the album. Miss Spears, Chris Brown, Miley Cyrus and Skylar Grey are amongst those who take their turns contributing to the tracks made up of the type of dance pop you’ve come to expect from this guy. Will.i.am does do some singing but much of it uses technology so we are not often hearing his voice stripped down. Though from I can hear it is getting a little better. We have already heard the lead track “Scream & Shout” feat. Britney Spears which is a massive hit so you should not be surprised as to the content of the rest of the album. When you watch him on The Voice Will.i.am is strange and funny and his music replicates that to a T. You know that we will be hearing songs from this album all summer long. Prepare yourself.
