#willpower

Will.i.am's fourth solo album is exactly the Death Star-size Jägerbomb you'd expect. On #willpower, the Black Eyed Peas rapper-producer compares himself to Mark Zuckerberg, rips off "Ni**as in Paris" and siphons Chris Brown, Bieber, Britney, Miley, Skylar Grey, K-pop act N2E1 and many more through mistily whooshing, thunderously stomping dance pop that manages to be both hilariously one-dimensional and obsessively high-def. "This Is Love," with Dutch singer Eva Simons, is the "I Gotta Feeling"-style planet-smasher, and the Britney-abetted "Scream & Shout," is a slinky devil robot. Even goofball tracks like the techno-Cotton Club "Bang Bang" can induce seizures of awe.
