Riff: will.i.am – “This Is Love”

Apr 23, 2013

I sent a rocket to the globe, armor just stole/I fill it up and love it, and then I watch it explode

from This Is Love lyrics by will.i.am

Eva Simons‘ gutsy guest vocals elevate this piano-driven trance stomper above the usual Guetta-lite fare. But will still sounds like too much of a creepy uncle for his nonsensical self-labels of ‘dope crusader’ and ‘funky terminator’ to have the desired effect; [LISTEN].
