will.i.am To Release Solo Debut, Songs About Girls, This September

wiliam.jpgBlack Eyed Peas front man, will.i.am, will release his debut solo album, Songs About Girls, on September 25 through Music Group/Interscope Records. As the lead MC and producer for the three-time Grammy Award winning group, will has worked with some of the biggest names in hip-hop. But for Songs About Girls, he is taking a difference approach, only calling on one guest appearance, Snoop Dogg on “Donque,” for the album. “I didn’t want to come out and say, ‘Hey, I’m a producer and here are all my friends,’” he says. “I wanted to be my own man and do my own thing and really try out some ideas that have been bubbling in my head.” The lead single off Songs About Girls, “I Got It From My Mama,” was recently released and director Brian Barber shot a video for the song in Brazil.

  • HipHopDown

    Solid reporting. will.i.am already has two solo albums, Must Be 21 and Loose Change. Therefore this could not be his debut. Its okay based on what will has done since his master piece Briding the Gaps, the album will be rubbish anyway.

  • I AM HIPHOP

  • Tosh

    Will is one of the best producers out there. Who else can produce for Nas, game and turn around and do a Fergie record? Diversity will get you far in this game. Better than boring @#* Pharrell….and he from cali..

  • CLARITY

    The only ones who can bring money back to music are producer/performers. They don’t have to do what everyone else does. They can take risks because they can always fall back and produce if all else fails.

    Most rappers have to talk about crack or the kids won’t buy their albums. Kanye, Pharrell, and Will aint scared of the public. Thats why they can dress the way they want. Their free when most artists nowadays are slaves.
    Producers have to listen to different music genres to improve sonically. Once you have an open mind it moves to your clothes and concepts.

  • DirtDoggy

    Hey Tush, eat a phat sausage fag boy, this dude Will.I.Ain’t is gayer than Elton John with a weak ass style on tha real for real.

    But I look at it as an inspiration, cause if he can do it anyone can, hhaahhahahahh, fuckin dildo ryders.

  • whatever
