It has long been rumored that Will.i.am's anticipated "#willpower" album would feature K-pop act 2NE1 -- a move that would bring the growing genre closer to the West. Many names were thrown out in the Black Eyed Pea's fourth solo effort -- like British darling Cheryl Cole -- but Blackjacks, the name of their dedicated fanbase held their breath until an official tracklisting came.
Luckily, 2NE1 made the cut on track No. 6 "Gettin' Dumb" featuring Will's Peas co-member apl.de.ap. There are a few similarities between the leaked will.i.am/2NE1 collaboration "Take The World On." Again, listeners hear a house-inspired piano banger on the chorus. As well, we hear 2NE1 showing off a more explicit side of their lyrical game. Leader CL raps on the first verse, “They get none of my kitty kitty. / On my sh-t ‘cause it looks nice" using several explicatives throughout the section. This is continues with the side will.i.am brought out on “World” when CL declares, "You and I / let’s go multiply."
