Black Eyed Peas singer Will.i.am finds old taste in new music
Los Angeles: Former Black Eyed Peas singer Will.i.am seems to be bored with the current state of music, and he's planning to "energise" his batteries to bring something fresh.
The singer feels that the records that are hitting the charts sound similar to the music that was released over 10 years ago, he said in an interview to nypost.com.
"Everything around music right now is so 2000s, like 2003," he said.
unimpressed with the performances at the recent American Music Awards.
"Nothing was like, 'Oh my!'. It's like, I don't know how you compete with 'refresh'. Everyone is 'refreshing' their phones, and songs just always seem to be in the background. You're competing with my thumb flipping channels," he said of such televised channels.
Will.i.am has no plans to retire as of now.
"You know what rhymes with retire? Expire. We ain't expiring, we ain't retiring. If it rhymes with something bad you don't want it...(I'll just) energise the batteries. Lithium. Lithium pop," he said.
