Listen to will.i.am’s “#thatpower” featuring Justin Bieber after the jump.
Set to a classic will.i.am club-thumper beat, “#thatpower” kicks off with Justin singing about being alive, young, loaded, and free: “Oooh/ I’m alive/ I’m alive/ And ohhh/ I can fly/ I can fly/ I can fly… And I’m loving every second/ minute/ hour/ bigger/ better/ strong / power.” (Kanye West “Power” reference much, guys?) On his and Justin’s collaboration, will.i.am claims it was all in a day’s work: “So actually we went shopping first and we were like ‘hey, let’s just have a chilled day’ and we went shopping for shoes, then after that we went to the studio, watched the BRITs [last month], recorded that and then trucked off to see Justin Timberlake perform. So that was a pretty full day.” Uh, talk about THE BEST DAY EVER!! Our “full” days consist of work, pilates, and figuring out what color to paint the walls. “Egg shell” or “semi-gloss” finish?! Aaaaand we’ve gone off topic (it’s probably all the paint fumes). Love the new jam, bros!
