Will.I.Am: Britney Spears Album Is “One Of Her Best”
Plus, the star reveals he wants to join Britney on stage in Las Vegas…
The Black Eyed Peas star, who worked as executive producer on the new record, recently told Billboard: "That song is a reflection of Britney more so than the album."
"The album is what the album is, but we felt that song needed to come out to keep the foundation on what Britney represents.”
He explained: "But it shouldn't reflect the album - an album is a body of work as a collective. If we had to pick a song like, 'Oh, what song fits every color of the record,' you shouldn't do that… We felt that song represents 'Piece of Me,' that Britney oomph."
In another interview with E! News, The Voice judge insisted that Britney’s as-yet-untitled eighth studio album is one of her finest yet.
The Scream & Shout hit maker dished: "This record, in my opinion, is going to be one of her best records."
He added: 'There's a lot of personal, sultry songs as well as grit and edge and oomph."
The 38-year-old also revealed that he’s keen to join BritBrit on stage when she kicks off hertwo-year performance residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas in December of this year.
Will added to E! News: "I can't wait for her Vegas shows to open. I want to go there and support, perform with her."
