Will.I.Am revealed his plans to put forth a new solo album at the end of May.
Will recently confirmed the Black Eyed Peas will reunite for an album again shortly, but surprisingly, the "Scream & Shout" producer admitted a new solo album of his is in the works. The first single from the project is the newly-released song "Boys & Girls" featuring Pia Mia (because his manager thought she was hot).
"We were thinking like Mid-May," Will says of the untitled album's premiere date. "I don't know yet. It will probably get moved. Right now it's planned for like... May – before the end of May. May 27, something like that."
Will says he played the execs at his label Universal a couple of songs laying around on his hard drive, and it was them who felt "Boys & Girls" should be the record's first single.
Collaborations on the new record include Tinie Tempah, CL, which he says is "one of my favorites" and confirms they already filmed a music video for it, and a new song with the Black Eyed Peas.
The news may come as a bit of a shock considering Will just dropped a new music video for "Mona Lisa" with Nicole Scherzinger, a song off his 2013 record #willpower, but Will has a way of keeping us on our toes, OKAY?
