Will.I.Am. Won’t Be Signing Any New Artists

Posted By on February 8, 2008

Will.i.am has released albums by Fergie, Macy Gray, Sergio Mendes and his own album all through his imprint on Interscope Records called will.i.am Music Group. He seems to be content with that artist line-up as he says "I'm not going to sign anybody anymore," "We're still going to make records on Interscope. I've got the Peas and Fergie and stuff, but I don't know if I want to sign new people," he said. "If I do, they've got to want it. I'm not going to force it down anybody. I'm just going to continue to make records with the people I already have signed. I just want to focus on what I have and not do too much."

will.i.am did say that one of his priorities is adding content to hi website, Dipdive.com, which he said is "my blog". Recently he posted a song, "Yes We Can," on his website in support of Barack Obama that featured Scarlett Johansson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Common. "I want to inspire people to put music out and put it on the 'net right after they do that," he said.  Will.i.am is working on the 25th anniversary edition of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and producing a new album by Jackson.
