will.i.am just turned 39 on March 15, but the pop heavyweight is already plotting how he’ll celebrate the big four-oh. His plans, none too surprisingly, involve throwing money around, kicking it with beautiful women and generally getting crazy. Cody Wise, a Philly singer signed to the Black Eyed Peas frontman’s own label imprint, co-headlines the joint, lending his breezy (and bilingual) vocals to the cut’s verses. A sample of popular Tamil song Urvasi Urvasi, composed by A.R. Rahman for the soundtrack to 1997 film Kadhalan, forms the centerpiece of will and DJ Ammo‘s body-moving instrumental. The accompanying visuals feature appearances from popular Vine, YouTube and Maker Studios artists. Birthday isn’t part of a larger set, but we’ll keep you posted on will.i.am and Cody Wise’s plans as further details emerge.
