Will.i.am Delivers A Fresh New Beat In New Video “This Is Love”
Will.i.am and Dutch singer Eva Simons glam it up and rock out in the Black Eyed Peas‘ member- turned- solo-artist’s new video for, “This Is Love”. The track is the second single off of Will.i.am’s upcoming album #willpower, a follow up to his 2007 album Songs About Girls. Will’s most recent smash being a collaboration with Jennifer Lopez and Mick Jagger for the album’s first single “T.H.E.” which aptly set the tone for the style of #willpower.
In the video, Will establishes the mood playing a piano in a park setting, prepping for partygoers to go wild for the catchy, electronic beat. Jamming to what could be the next summer anthem, with fireworks and elaborate dancers, the song describes the love of music and the uniqueness of the beat.
“Love for computer beat, hotter than metal,” Will raps, addressing the techno feel to the song. Prefacing with, “Love for the melody, no song is cheap.” It is always fresh to see performers express their love for music in their actual songs. The complex beats that derive from such creativity are definitely something to appreciate about Will.i.am!
#willpower is anticipated to be out later this year. But, while you’re waiting, checkout the video below and don’t be alarmed if you start to jam and move along!
