Check out the lyric video for "Better Than Yesterday"...
Billboard reports that Will.I.Am and Sidney Samson have released the lyric video for their new song "Better Than Yesterday", through Spinnin' Records.
The song came to be after a meeting at the Ibiza nightclub Pacha durin David Guetta's "Fuck Me I'm Famous" party in the summer of 2010. Guetta invited Samson, celebrating his remix of Guetta's "Gettin' Over You", the fifth single from One Love. Samson was playing 30 EDM gigs at the time in Holland.
Samson said: "I always thought the music I made would stay in Holland."
Will.I.Am met Samson at the party and they began collaborating. Songs included The Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling". Will recognized Samson from his single "Riverside". The two exchanged emails and then met in Los Angeles for a four-day vacation in the studio. They worked on a project for Will and Lil Wayne, which hasn't been released. Then Samson worked on another song, "Better Than Yesterday".
Samson said: "I played him a bit of the song, and he just picked up the mic. In two hours he sang the topline. It was unbelievable."
The song was held up for over a year because of legal issues. Samson said it was "difficult to clear the vocal". The song will get a release next month.
Samson also produced "Get It Started" for Pitbull and Shakira, which is #89 on the Hot 100. One of his songs for Far East Movement's new album, called "Change Your Life" (ft. Flo Rida) will be the first single.
Samson added: "I started out playing hip-hop and R&B, and now I have the chance to make music - dance music - with my heroes from back in the day, and that is so cool. It's like heaven on earth."
Finally, he said he will continue to make his own music through his dance label RockTheHouze. He said: "[With "Better Than Yesterday"], I was trying to make a pop dance song, like a radio kind of song, and on the other side I release real club songs for the people who know me for that certain sound. I'm always going to release songs like that; I'm never going to switch over to pop, mainstream, commercial music. I love to do it, but I don't need everyone to love me all the time. If they love one song, that's enough."
