Yes, you read that right: will.i.am, who has been dabbling in EDM for the last few years, has hopped on the EDM trap wave with his new track “#thatpower,” which features Justin Bieber. And this isn’t just “will.i.am x 808s, go!,” this is an actual trap track. Not a very good one, but it shows that trap has truly arrived in the mainstream, even more than Dillon Francis scoring an official trap remix of Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie.”
We just can’t co-sign this particular track. And it’s not even because it’s will.i.am and Bieber; it’s just not that exciting.
