Summary

Black Eyed Peas ringleader will.i.am's last solo outing was 2007's Songs About Girls, a hearty collection of relaxed R&B pop that was mostly left in the shadows as his main act grew in popularity to the scope of Superbowl halftime shows and world records for most downloaded singles. #willpower sees will.i.am returning with a nonstop list of collaborators from Juicy J to Britney Spears to Justin Bieber and over an hour of neatly polished pop-friendly tracks. #willpower is a power play of mindless party jams, braggadocio rap routines, and the type of escapist fun you would expect from one of the minds that gave us "My Humps" and "Let's Get Retarded." ~ Fred Thomas
