will.i.am Premieres Pia Mia-assisted “Boys & Girls”: LISTENApril 7, 2016
Bop or hot mess? You be the judge.
It’ll give you “Pretty Girls” vibes, and we don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing.
Even though will.i.am’s new single featuring Pia Mia was set to drop on iTunes on Friday, the Black Eyed Peas lead single/rapper/whatever decided to give Capital FM’s “Capital Breakfast Show” the exclusive with a First Listen of the synth-heavy track on Thursday (April 7).
On the less than three-minute dance cut, the “little genius,” offers up an ode to the party lifestyle with mediocre shoutouts aimed at the LGBT community. If you’re wondering about the latter, the budding pop star sing/talks about boys kissing boys and girls kissing girls during the hook. Nonetheless, Pia Mia’s voice sounds so processed that any sort of distinction in her vocals are, well, gone. It’s sort of like that “It Should Be Easy” effect. Plus, it’ll give you “Pretty Girls” vibes, and we don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing.
The rollout for the “Boys & Girls” campaign appears short and speedy, considering that a visual for the song is set to drop sometime this week, too. Be on the lookout!
