Photographer: Joseph Cultice.'s success as a producer for the likes of John Legend, Fergie, and Macy Gray, among others, rivaled the enormous popularity of his own group, Black Eyed Peas. SONGS ABOUT GIRLS is the producer/rapper's major-label solo debut, and while critics might turn their noses up at's commercially tailored pop-rap, there is no denying the man's production skills. Like Kanye West, another rap artist whose true genius lies in track-making, is no great shakes on the mic. Fortunately, the rapping isn't foregrounded here; instead it tastefully fills space between bouts of dazzling production work.
The opening track, co-written with Jeff Lynne, takes a sample from ELO's "It's Over" to build an immediately infectious jam that weighs in as one of the most bumping break-up songs of 2007. The lead-off single "I Got It From My Mama" may have nabbed attention for its call-and-response segments and insistent hook, but it's outpaced by production gems like "Get Your Money" and "The Donque Song," which features a cameo by Snoop Dogg. Fans of Black Eyed Peas and pop-rap in general shouldn't miss SONGS ABOUT GIRLS, but neither will anyone invested in the art of hip-hop production.
Artist Overview
While he's occasionally dismissed by critics as a rap dilettante or a crossover-craving popster for his unabashedly upbeat and hooky hip-hop, Will.I.Am also earns a well-deserved modicum of praise for his acrobatic rhymes and agile beats, both solo and as the primary member of the Black Eyed Peas. He was actually against the direction of the BEP's breakthrough hit, "Where Is the Love?" in 2003; however, with its simplistic, sweet, striking philosophy and luxurious, swelling backbeat, it would perfectly sum up what would become the Will.I.Am aesthetic. While his solo material has been less storied, his political clout would prove mighty: his YouTube video for future President Barack Obama came at the perfect time in the Illinois senator's nascent campaign.
