3. will.i.am, “Bang Bang”
SL: Finally a solid track from will.i.am that doesn’t go heavy on the electronic sounds or rely on too many gimmicks (say like a faux-Brit accent from Britney Spears). The rapper has fun with the jazz sounds and keeps it simple and fun. 4 out of 5
MO: This song terrifies me because I enjoy it so much. This is the artist I’ve always wanted will.i.am to be without knowing it (and I’m convinced the back up singer is Britney Spears doing a faux-flapper accent). 3 out of 5.
4. Fergie, Q-Tip and GoonRock, “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)”
SL: Fergie is a polarizing singer at times. Fun and catchy on some songs, garish and loud and others. Here, she’s all over the place but the track fails to get the party started. 1/2 out of 5
MO: I actually really like this song! I enjoy garish things! I will happily go to this party with my friends: glitter, gin and Liza Minelli. 4 out of 5.
