Will.i.am Reveals Star-Studded '#willpower' Album on VEVO

Will.i.am already premiered major singles with huge names Britney Spears ("Scream & Shout") and Justin Bieber ("#thatPOWER"). Now, he's ready to reveal the rest of his star-studded #willpower album, set for release April 23.

For the Black Eyed Peas frontman's fourth album, friends from across the globe came together for a multi-genre party. Standouts include the banging Miley Cyrus collabo "Fall Down" (above), that has some serious Ke$ha "Die Young" vibes. There's also the dubstep-heavy "Gettin' Dumb" featuring K-pop phenoms 2NE1 and his Black Eyed Peas bandmate apl.de.ap. In a rare, tender moment, album closer "Ghetto Ghetto" featuring 8-year-old femcee Baby Kaely is an inspiring (and adorable) hip hop track.

Chris Brown, Nicole Scherzinger, Juicy J and Skylar Grey all lend their talents for the record as well.

Will’s production discography has been, to be blunt, spotty—he was responsible for super-lame Usher single “OMG”—but fans of pop, hip hop, EDM and K-pop will be all be able to get in this record. Talk about mass appeal.

Take a listen to each track at Will's Vevo account and listen to standouts below.
