Product Description

After selling close to 20 million albums as the mastermind of the Black Eyed Peas,Grammy winner will.i.am is ready for his solo release - Songs About Girls. Will has recently produced hits for many artists Fergie, Sergio Mendes, Pussycat Dolls, John Legend, Nas,The Game, Justin Timberlake to name a few... Songs About Girls is produced and written by will.i.am with Snoop Dogg confirmed as the 1 featured artist. He has made a concept album with songs surrounding common relationship issues. It really made me aware of how much is possible musically, he says.

Amazon.com

Talent as big as Will.i.am's can't help making a lot of noise, and Songs About Girls is, for sure, a big, noisy record. But in addition to the kind of hugeness, it's sometimes hard to get your head around--see "Impatient," a freaked-up, very busy club joint--there's an outsize effort to connect with listeners on a deeper level here. Will.i.am, whose unstoppable run as a producer may have temporarily rubbed the sheen off his reputation as an artist, pulls it off in his own radiant, loopish, never-boring way. The best of this batch of songs chronicles a failed real-life relationship: "Over," which was co-written with Jeff Lynne and plucks from ELO's way-cool "It's Over," leads the pack with a bust-the-walls-in beat, and it's followed by the excellently unruly related numbers "Heartbreaker," "One More Chance," "Invisible," and "Fantastic." Listen to the hip-hoppy lyrics to these songs--several resonate through the hoots, horns, and hype--and you get the sense Will.i.am's appetite for the meaninglessly spectacular has diminished. But then "The Donque Song" comes along. Bouncing off a lot of electronic beats, booty references, and sly asides by Snoop--Girls' only guest star--"Donque" does its pulse-raising thing in classic out-there Will.i.am form; ditto first single "I Got It from My Mama," which traffics in sound effects and Black Eyed Peas-type call and response. "S.O.S.," a plea sent out on behalf of the environment, ends the disc on a somber note, but don't expect to walk off feeling all serious; Songs About Girls sucks its listeners way too far into the center of a stylish, if gloriously unhinged, universe for that. --Tammy La Gorce

I'll just get this out of the way real quick. I'm a fan of the Black Eyed Peas. Sure, I know this admission will get me slammed by purists, backpackers, and other types of elitists, so that's to be expected (just read the tags for this album for further proof). If you approach this album expecting anything more than the shallow, sugary, pop tunes that the Black Eyed Peas front man has recently become famous for, especially after seeing the title of the album then, not only are you a fool, but you're also going to be let down. Despite what some will tell you, there are some good songs to be found on this disc. There are club ready songs like "The Donque Song" that, despite corny rhymes, has a beat that doesn't quit and has "single" written all over it (Snoop's verse wasn't bad either). "One More Chance" is dope while "Make It Funky" also serves the same party starting purpose and "Ain't It Pretty" just vibes well. "Impatient" is probably my favorite track on the album because there are no words...it's just a nice, breezy instrumental. Will shoulders the bulk of the production duties with Polow Da Don and Fernando Garibay both doing two tracks and Paper-Boy co-producing one.

There are a few songs on this album that, despite the light content, are just mind numbingly bad. Songs like "Fly Girl", "She's A Star", and "Get Your Money" will have you reaching for the skip button with lightning speed. The biggest turn off to me, actually, would be the first single. I honestly think "I Got It From My Mama" should've never seen the light of day, but I do understand the need for conspicuous use of a pop star (in this case, Nicole Scherzinger) for the first single. Outside of those bumps in the road, I'd say that the rest of the CD is pretty good.

Will.i.am AKA William Adams known for most people as the brain and frontman behind Black Eyed Peas and also their producer. After several commercially successful albums with the band Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson went solo last year and released the album The Dutchess that so far gave her three #1 hits and one #2. Not bad at all. With Fergie's massive success it was natural that also Will.i.am would go solo, however this is actually his third album. But I doubt alot of people heard his previous two albums that were released before Black Eyed Peas had their big break and never got alot of promotion amyway. "Songs About Girls" will be diffrent cause by now he's a well know man amd he also proved his versability as a producer by making hits for Nas, Common, Macy Gray, Nicole Scherzinger and he's currently working with Michael Jackson's new album aswell. "Songs About Girls" is exactly what it is, a Semi-autobiographical concept album about girls. Some songs are more serious and deal with the good and bad times of his 7 year relationship that ended sometime ago. Other songs are funny, less serious and deal about girls in general while some songs are as corny as they can with commercial appeal and deal with female bodyparts. But they are all about women. Will.i.am produces 2/3 of the album by himself while Polow Da Don and Fernando Garibay do the rest. The overall sound is very retro-ish late 70'-early 80's Influenced but with modern tecnique ofcourse. While most other superproducers have an orgy of guests on their albums, the only one here is Snoop Dogg. Let's take a look at the songs and see if he manage to make this album more worthwile then his first two.Read more ›

When the Black Eyed Peas were at their height of popularity during 2004-2006,the music industry was beginning to fly apart.Looking back on the situation its a wonder that even they,who had enormous hit potential for that era,were even able survive at all. Will I. Am was very caught in the middle of an impossible situation. A talented and eccentric multi-instrumentalist/rapper/DJ/songwriter/producer Will had more than enough talent to contribute greatly to helping the R&B/funk/soul community out of the doldrums it was in at that time. There was a holding pattern going on-with an extremely cookie cutter sound. Interestingly enough Will was part of the hip-hop world,which seemed at that time to be an enormous cause of the problems with soul/R&B music. That was because,as it was becoming more mainstream,hip-hop was fast losing its original intention and credibility as the alternative to commercial music. It WAS commercial music now. With this solo album,while not his debut by any means, Will I. Am seemed to be looking to bury that hatchet a bit.

Songs such as "Over","I Got It From My Mama","Heartbreaker","One More Chance" and "Invisible" all find an interesting balance between the EMD sound (unsure if it had that name yet),1980's style electro pop-from which EMD was inspired actually and a good dose of the disco-funk sound of the late 70's that inspired hip-hop at its birth. "She's A Star" is the song most stereotypically hip-hop of its era,and to me the weakest number on this particular album. "Get Your Money" and "The Donque Song" with Snoop Dogg take that sound into a somewhat slower tempo and therefore funkier place. The heavier boogie funk comes with the bass/guitar Chic sound of "Impatient",which blends repeated sung/vocorderized (not autotuned) call and responses in fine funk style.
