Prince Is Big Fan of 'I Gotta Feeling'


Prince


Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am will always treasure the band's hit single 'I Gotta Feeling' after learning soul superstar Prince is a big fan of the song.

will.i.am reveals the "Purple Rain" icon, Prince personally reached out to him after attending a Black Eyed Peas concert and lavished praise on him for creating such a catchy tune.

He tells MTV, "I remember we played the song in Minnesota, and Prince was at the show, and he called me on the phone afterwards. He said, 'Congratulations'."

"He says, 'You know, those songs don't come all the time. You're blessed to have one of those songs. You know, they're gifts.' I was like, 'Wow.' For someone like Prince to tell you that, that's bigger than a Grammy for me."

And the hip-hop star has fun every time he plays the 2009 song live. He recently said, "When we perform it, in my mind, I'm like, 'Where did that song come from?' I can't believe this is us, and look at all these people singing it like it's theirs."
