I won’t deny it; will.i.am is, by far, the most entertaining thing about The Voice. But his new single, ‘Fall Down’, is certainly not “dope”. The Black Eyed Peas rapper teams up with former Disney starlet, Miley Cyrus, on the dance-pop song, which premièred online this morning (April 16).

Both “artists” give perhaps the most uninspiring performances of their respective careers; will.i.am’s auto-tune is cranked up to infinity and beyond, while a most-likely-stoned Cyrus sounds like she would rather be anywhere else than back in the recording studio.

And I haven’t even got to the lyrics. will.i.am and Cyrus resemble a couple of repugnant, lovesick teenagers, exchanging mushy lines including, “You’re like an elevator ’cause you always pick me up” and “I could be your chip, you my dip, let me dip it up”. No, really.

‘Fall Down’, which was produced by Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco and Cirkutis, is available to buy through iTunes from today. It is lifted from will.i.am’s upcoming fourth studio album, ‘#willpower’, which is due to be released on April 19. I, for one, will.not.be buying it. Sorry.
