The artist, who serves as the creative director at Intel, says the new music service has some issues and isn’t really a great model.
Called the Google Play Music All Access, it’s a paid subscription to music-streaming, something like Spotify.
“Honestly, I don’t really know what that means,” Will.i.am said. “Because they’re subscribing to sold music. What if I made a song and put it on the Internet tomorrow? Spotify doesn’t spot that. So, we live in this connected instant right now world. Those services are cool for songs that were for sale yesterday…Google owns YouTube. If I wanted to hear music, I’m just going on YouTube. So it doesn’t really make sense at all, actually.”
Onto other things will.i.am, the Black Eyed Peas frontman showed off a different flavor in his new time capsule music video.
In lieu of “The Great Gatsby” the movie, he went back in time, dressed in a top hat with tails and danced that old kind of stepping. Hence the pic above.
“Bang Bang” takes audiences on a journey through time and we end up in black-and-white clips.
