Like it or not, will.i.am's new album is streaming online right now
The newest album from Black Eyed Peas leader will.i.am isn’t slated to drop until next Tuesday, but like Justin Timberlake, David Bowie and Depeche Mode before him, it looks like he just couldn’t wait: #willpower is now streaming in its entirety on YouTube and Vevo.
The official version of the pre-hashtagged album — will.i.am’s fourth as a solo artist — features fifteen songs, with guests ranging from Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, and, of course, Britney Spears on “Scream & Shout.” His Miley Cyrus collaboration “Fall Down,” however, isn’t included in the pack; that song can be consumed on iTunes.
Yet the version currently streaming is actually the deluxe edition of #willpower, with three extra tracks to offer. Among the bonus material: will.i.am’s Martian stunt song “Reach for the Stars,” some snoozer called “Smile Mona Lisa,” and his Cher-referencing Great Gatsby soundtrack contribution “Bang Bang.”
Want to give #willpower a shot? You can hear the whole thing below, where it’ll be streaming until the album’s April 23 release. Or, if you’d prefer not to, perhaps this stream of Phoenix’s new album will suit you better.
