The Bollywood-themed new song will apparently be featured in the Black Eyed Peas frontman's new solo album.
will.i.am returned with a new track called "Birthday" on Tuesday, May 20. Featuring guest vocals from a newcomer named Cody Wise, the club-friendly tune sounds refreshing. It finds the duo dropping their respective lines over a Bollywood-inspired beat.
"It's my birthday, it's my birthday/ I'mma spend my money/ Pretty lady, pretty lady/ You should be my honey/ Lord have mercy, lord have mercy/ Pretty baby come with me/ It's my birthday, it's my birthday/ I'mma live my fantasy," Cody sings.
The potential hit comes months after will.i.am put out "Feeling Myself", the DJ Mustard-produced song which features guest appearances from Miley Cyrus, French Montana and Wiz Khalifa.
Fans are speculating that "Birthday", which is scheduled to be released on digital retailers next week, will end up being included in will.i.am's new solo album. The Black Eyed Peas member hasn't confirmed or denied the news. There's still no word on the title or the release date of the follow-up to last year's "#willpower".
