will.i.am

Postby SpiceWonderland » 29 Nov 2012, 18:13

Thought I'd make a will.i.am thread since Scream & Shout has renewed slight interest in his music (albeit a very small one). EDIT: New(ish) music videos posted at bottom.

He thinks his sound is so futuristic and shit but it's so repetitive and crap I prefer his work with Black eyed peas ;)

There is nothing futuristic about Will.I.Am at all. He just uses beats that sound like computer default sounds or sounds like a broken record/ CD skipping.

Without the help of other artists on his record I don't think people will be interested otherwise?

It honestly kills me how repetitive Will's lyrics are, I hate his music and he continually seems to lower the bar in terms of quality and depth in even his own music.

Sorry ive never set out to bash in any thread, but I just needed to vent!

I really like 'Fall Down' with Miley Cyrus. People say it sounds like a couple of Ke$ha tracks.

will.i.am's whole album is listenable on Vevo by the way... but 'Fall Down' was removed, for some reason. =/

Oh and here's the music video for #thatPOWER:

Check out Ke$ha's thread to keep up with the latest damage he caused to other people's music.

"Far Away From Home" is brilliant.

I listened to the album and I really enjoyed it. I don't need music to have a shitton of depth, I just have to like it. I think the album version of Reach For The Stars is brilliant. Loved the video for #thatPOWER, aside from Justin fucking Beaver. He looks SO out of place in it, it's bad enough he's on the song.

After a few listens I have to say there are some really good songs on it. It obviously isn't the most original album ever and most of his songs sound the same. But if you listen to the album with low expectations (like me) you'll be surprised.

Hello, This Is Love, Scream & Shout, Geekin, That Power, Fall Down, Far Away From Home, Getho Getho, Reach For The Stars, Smile Mona Lisa and Bang Bang are good. He could've used those 11 songs and added T.H.E. and it would've been a good solid 12-tracks album with no fillers.


Does anybody know why T.H.E. was left out?

I don't think any reason has been given, but that came out in October 2011 so perhaps they feel it's too old/not fresh enough for inclusion?

It's looking like Fall Down is going to be the next single, it was performed on Jimmy Kimmel and Good Morning America. Say what you want about Will and his music, but it's refreshing to see an album actually being promoted! #thatPower had SEVERAL performances. Bang Bang got a couple, too, for Gatsby promo (see music video above).

He's suing Pharrell for the use of 'I Am' in one of his clothing lines. Irony seeing as he's stolen beats his entire career!

That is actually quite hilarious. :laugh: How pointless, it's not going to win him any points with the public, nor would he win.

New song called Boys & Girls with Pia Mia. I don't think it's for an album, just a random release like Birthday. Boys & Girls is growing on me, but I much prefer the willpower stuff.
