Black Eye Peas' Will I Am has been talking to Aussie website Undercover
about their plans to collaborate on a track with The Darkness. Will I Am explains:
"At first there was a bit of weirdness between us and them in London. Our songs were at radio at the same time and we kept them out of the number one
spot for about seven weeks. They are from the UK. It felt kind of weird. We
didn't gel at first. The more we saw them at awards ceremonies and big awards we kind of joked around with them and became acquaintances. So on this tour its like "hey, what's up Justin" and he said we should do a song together. I thought "a song with The Darkness?" That would be pretty cool. He comes up to me and said he wanted to jump on stage with us so I told him to come on during 'Retarded' because that is the perfect song".
BEP are already hard at work on their fourth album - with the working title
'Monkey Business' - we'll let you know if The Darkness collaboration gets the go ahead.
