Kanye Confirms U2 Will.I.Am Collabo
EXCLUSIVE | Will.I.Am talks to MTV News about the Irish group
Kanye West has confirmed that Will.I.Am is working on the latest U2- weeks after MTV News told you about the rumours. Rapper West blogged the news saying:
WILL I AM IS PRODUCING ON U2's NEXT ALBUM. I'M SURE IT WILL BE DOPE AS SHIT JUDGING FROM THE CRAZY BEATS HE'S DONE IN THE PAST 3 YEARS!
Last month we revealed the rumours that the Black Eyed Peas frontman was working with the Irish rock band.
But when we asked Will.I.Am about it he smiled and said:
"I would love to do something with them. It that ever happens it would be a dream come true! I went to Bono's house. He has these summer parties and I went and had great food. It was the best. Those guys are the nicest people in the world."
The new U2 album is expected early in 2009 and we look forward to hearing if it takes a hip hop direction.
