If Will.i.am has his way, he’ll soon be working on a joint album with Kanye West.
At a recent stop for the Broadcast Music Inc. awards, the Black Eyed Peas frontman was asked who was on his wish list for future collaborations.
“I would like to work with Kanye,” Will.i.am said on the red carpet before receiving the BMI President’s award. “If we came up with a project together – like remember when [Cee-Lo] and Danger Mouse did that project and they called it something else? I think if me and Kanye did something together, that would be crazy.”
Known for his elctro-pop, hip-hop inspired production, Will.i.am has worked with everyone from Michael Jackson to Cheryl Cole. A possible pairing with West might fuel a fan frenzy, but the jury is still out on a potential name for this dynamic duo, according Will.i.am.
“It doesn’t have to be called Will and Kanye or Kanye and Will – we can call it anything,” he says. “I think that would be way out. It would give us the license to [just be] creative – no boundaries, no laws and just go and do things to get applause. That would be fresh.”
