The Black Eyed Peas star collaborated with Britney Spears on the release of Scream & Shout in 2013. Recently, Will.i.am attended the wedding party of the 40-year-old star to Sam Asghari.
While speaking to Good Morning Britain about his friendship with Spears and her new husband 28-year-old model Asghari, Will.i.am said: “I’m so happy for Britney, Sam is awesome.
“I’m so happy that she was able to break free from the situation that she was in. She deserves the best. She’s a sweetheart. A great contribution to popular music.”
He added: “We’ve done cool things together and I’m so happy that she’s on this new journey and shining. She still has hurdles but you know, we all are there to support her and Sam is awesome.”
The time when GMB presenters asked Ed Balls and Susanna Reid whether a new Will.i.am and Britney Spears collaboration might be on the cards, Will.i.am was unresponsive.
He said: “There’s been things in the works, things that we’ve done in the past.”
As 55-years-old Balls, tried to obtain more information out of Will.i.am, the rapper said: “I can’t reveal it now. I can’t reveal. I live a very private life.”
Recently Spears collaborated with Legendary icon Sir Elton John on the dance single Hold Me Closer.
The song blends Sir Elton’s 1971 hit Tiny Dancer with his 1992 song The One, at the same time parts of Don’t Go Breaking My Heart from 1976 also feature in the track.
In six years it was Spears’ first new music collaboration and also her first release since the end of a 13-year conservatorship.
Will.i.am is also a judge on singing show The Voice UK. He continued to speak about the Queen and his feelings following the news of her death that broke this month previously.
“I thought of your beautiful country and the blow that it was going to take on the country itself,” he said.
“She was a dynamic, shining light. She inspired so many folks. It was a heavy blow.
“She did remind me of my grandma and just that era, that type of female queen that nurture, that mother, that guiding light for every family. She reminded me of that of my grandma and the beautiful spirit.” [H/T Yahoo]
