I know what you’re thinking. Club-music genius will.i.am, releasing a record titled “Go Home?” Whatever happened to drinking and partying the whole night through? No need to worry—while I have no doubt that wiseacre DJs will repurpose the Black Eyed Peas frontman’s latest effort as a danceable way to nudge their clientele toward the door at closing time, the song is less about actually going home than it about the alternative; going hard. A remixed B-side to single T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever), Home finds will coming together with Grammy-winning house producer Wolfgang Gartner to render the chart-smashing single even more driving and danceable, crafting a streamlined four-on-the-floor instrumental accented with ‘Woo-hoo!‘s in the style of Blur’s stadium classic, Song 2. With original feature J-Lo absent, Mick Jagger picks up the slack on the guest tip and as usual the Stones frontman exhibits more energy and attitude than any 68-year-old rocker has a right to. The lyrics? Well, they’re still complete gibberish. But hey, as Kanye taught us, you don’t have to make sense to get a crowd going gorillas. Fans can find this dancefloor-scorching remix and much more on will.i.am’s second solo album, set to hit stores April 30.
