Will.i.am Gets Smart with ‘Black Einstein’ Solo Album


The Black Eyed Peas may be taking a break, but will.i.am shows no signs of slowing down. The leader of the band is prepping another solo album.

His fellow Pea Fergie spilled the beans about the project to Hollyscoop TV. “I believe will is coming out with a solo album,” she revealed. “I’ve heard it. It’s called Black Einstein and it’s amazing.”

Fergie, who plans to spend her time off focusing on charity work, shared her excitement. “I’ve been waiting for him to come out with this for so long because I want it. He won’t give it to me. I want it for the gym. He’s so amazing—just such a genius lyricist and I’m really excited for his project.”

Will’s previous solo album Songs About Girls didn’t fare well on the charts, peaking at No. 38 in October 2007 and spawning the singles “I Got It from My Mama” and “Heartbreaker.”

For her part, Fergie insists she is not releasing a solo project anytime soon. “I am so excited to take a break,” she previously told the AP. “The guys know that I’ve been waiting and it’s time and it’s exciting.”
