AMP Music Minute: will.i.am Enlists Big Names for #willpower, Chris Brown Tapped for Grammy Performance And More!

[photogallerylink id=15454 align=left][lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]will.i.am[/lastfm] is looking to bring his new album’s message to a whole bevy of fans, and to do that he’s enlisted some superstars from every genre.

For his first solo album since the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Black Eyed Peas[/lastfm] went on hiatus, #willpower, he’s tapped everyone from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Britney Spears[/lastfm] to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Busta Rhymes[/lastfm].

Besides the collaboration with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Mick Jagger[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jennifer Lopez[/lastfm] on the lead single, “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)” he’s working with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Alicia Keys[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicole Scherzinger[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Shakira[/lastfm] and even [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]LMFAO[/lastfm] as features. But it doesn’t stop there, “I have a song with Alicia Keys—me, Alicia, and Swedish House Mafia,” he shared. “I have a song with The Beats, which is pretty grand. Me and Shakira have been trying to finish the stuff we started, and me and Britney is really crazy.”

And he goes on, “So we got a song with me, LMFAO, and Eva Simons; A song with me and Busta Rhymes and Swizz Beatz. I got a whole other bunch of collaborations,” Will said, expanding on his “classical record” with former Pussycat Doll, Nicole. “This classic piece of music that I did with Nicole, it’s beautiful. That girl sings like I’ve never heard anybody sing like that in pop culture. She is thebomb.com.”

This is a star-studded album, but the idea of the album speaks to everyone. It’s to encourage the listeners to follow their dreams, which includes Will. “It was all a dream when I was 15 years old—20 years later I managed to take the dream from an idea to physicality. So #willpower is uplifting songs, encouragement for those that need it” the BEP front man told Capital FM.

Looks like Team Breezy has another reason to celebrate. According to E! Online, Grammy viewers can expect to see a dance-infused performance by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Brown[/lastfm] during the 54th annual award show.

[photogallerylink id=110070 align=right]This would be the first time Chris Brown, who is nominated for 3 awards, has been at the Grammy’s since he assaulted [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rihanna[/lastfm] the night before the 2009 award show. But from the recent news of them being seen at the same club, and keeping a cool head when the other is mentioned, there is no need to worry about the both of them performing at the award show (Rihanna has been confirmed for a joint performance with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Coldplay[/lastfm]).

The [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]LL Cool J [/lastfm]assisted Grammy show goes live on February 12th on CBS.You can also bank on performances by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bruno Mars[/lastfm].

[photogallerylink id=127008 align=right]So there will certainly be doubters but we hear at AMP are very intrigued by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Paris Hilton[/lastfm]’s new album. Every time we look up it seems like some new talent has gotten involved in her project.

Before we reported on how [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Afrojack[/lastfm] was producing the upcoming dance album. Meanwhile her childhood friends, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]LMFAO[/lastfm] also jumped on as collaborators. Now it looks as if [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Snoop Dogg[/lastfm] is also getting down with Sweet P, the rap name he dubbed her back in 2009 on his MTV show “Dogg After Dark.”

Paris Hilton is promising the album to be ready for distribution real soon, especially after locking in a track with Snoop. “It should be out in the next few months,” said the hotel heiress “We just finished doing my single with [band] LMFAO, then I’m recording with Snoop Dogg.”

There are also some rumors swirling that Paris is actually dating Afrojack, which would explain a lot of how all of this got in the works again.

Paris’s first and self titled debut album was released to little fanfare back in 2006. Immediately after, however, the reality star claimed to have more music in the works. Alas, to no avail. But here it is 2012 and all of a sudden she’s grooving again. A world famous DJ for a boyfriend could be just the thing.

But we don’t want to short change Hilton, who claims that “a lot of people don’t know that music is my passion since I was a little girl… I’m very musically talented.”
