will.i.am teams up with Miley Cyrus on his latest “#willpower” track, “Fall Down.”
will.i.am and Miley Cyrus each have a lot going on right now: Will’s hashtagged album #willpower drops in a few short days (April 23, to be exact) while Miley is doing everything from prepping HER upcoming disc to collaborating with Snoop Lion on “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks.” But if anyone’s got the collab world on lock, it’s Will: After teaming up with Britney Spears for “Scream & Shout” and Justin Bieber on “#thatpower,” Will’s just released a brand-new single from #willpower, the Miley Cyrus-assisted “Fall Down.”
Listen to Will.i.am featuring Miley Cyrus’ “Fall Down” after the jump.
Set to an upbeat military-esque whistle, “Fall Down” is your typical “up in da club” electro song save for a few unpredictable elements, including elegant strings on the bridge and sharp acoustic strums. Will and Miley trade verses, with Will crooning about how his girl, well, picks him up when he’s down (no better way to say it, unfortunately): “Girl, you’re like an elevator cause you always pick me up/ Girl, you’re like a doctor when I’m sick you always stitch me up/ You can be my DJ, I’m your record, come on mix me up.” Miley chimes in later to sing the same lines, only with “Boy” instead of “Girl.” Not the most original lyrics, but we could never say no to Miley’s trademark husky vocals, especially when we’re THIS close to hearing her upcoming solo material. (Wouldja just release that stuff already, Milers?!)
