Will.i.am reveals Transformers inspiration
Will.i.am has revealed an unlikely inspiration - Transformers.
Speaking to VEVO, the Black Eyed Peas man said that he feels the 1980s cartoon acted as a blueprint for future technology.
The singer and producer believes that the idea behind Transformers, which focuses on metamorphosis and multifunctionality, has now been applied to making music. He said:
"Transformers inspired me as a kid. The fantasy from cartoons in the past has now changed to computers today and how I can make a whole song on a computer...make it, play it and sing it from the same device. That is like a robot to me."
The song hit the top of the UK chart on Sunday (July 2) as he beat off competition from Maroon 5's 'Payphone'.
