Well it seems Will.i.am finally admitted that he may have sorta kinda stole a song that was not his and kinda sorta may have put that song on his new album (the inanely titled “#willpower”). It was fairly obvious and most people had already moved on with their lives (especially Chris Brown) but Will.i.am felt the need to come clean which he did…in a convoluted way:
Arty is a dope producer so I wrote this song to ‘Rebound’ this last year. I got in touch with Arty and showed it to him, did a different version to it ’cause I asked him [to] make it newer ’cause I don’t just wanna take your song and rap over it. But in a year’s time, time’s gone by [and] we preferred writing over and using the [original] rebound. Something happened and the clearance … hopefully we resolved the issue.
Um. What? Anyway, it appears it was all just an honest mistake that was definitely NOT intentional. It screams “don’t sue me” and we’ll see if it works but in any case I think we can all agree that #willpower is going to be terrible and inexplicably super popular. I for one think it’s too soon to be making Justin Bieber into a hologram. Didn’t he just die like a month ago or was that Margaret Thatcher?
