Will.i.am spilled the beans on his latest jam with Britney Spears, the snazzy tune called “Mind Your Business.” In a chat with Rylan Clarke and Josie Gibson on This Morning, the rapper revealed it took a whopping 13 years to finally unleash this musical masterpiece upon the world, and why, you ask? Well, because, my dear folks, it’s like waiting for grapes to magically transform into wine! Yep, patience is the name of the game.
Will.i.am, who’s forever been a fan of working with Britney because, let’s face it, she’s just awesome, spilled the juicy details. They originally recorded the lyrical part back in 2011. But you know, it’s not a song unless it’s been properly marinated in the sauce of time. So, the 48-year-old music maestro explained that it takes time for things to ferment, just like that bottle of wine you’ve been saving for a special occasion.
When the topic of dream collaborations came up, Will.i.am’s eyes lit up like a kid in a candy store. He confessed that he’d love to rock out with Rihanna again, and who wouldn’t? He’s already done something with her in the past, and let’s be real, any chance to collaborate with Queen Bey, aka Beyoncé, is a dream come true. Remember that remix to “Break My Soul”? Yep, that was him! These ladies are his all-time faves, and who can blame him?
Back in July, the musical maestro let the cat out of the bag, spilling the tea on how Britney sang about “the price of fame” in “Mind Your Business.” In a world where everyone feels the need to share their every move on social media, Britney’s here to tell us that it’s okay not to overshare. You don’t need to document every trip to the grocery store, and you definitely shouldn’t have to pay a price for picking up a carton of milk.
Will.i.am summed it up perfectly: Britney is singing about the hefty price tag that comes with that insane level of fame. Imagine not being able to pop into Tesco for some crisps or head to the supermarket for a pint of ice cream without the paparazzi breathing down your neck. It’s like a never-ending game of hide and seek, and the world’s the playground!
