will.i.am seems to be everywhere recently. What with producing for a wide array of artists, guest appearances and a newly released solo album, there aren’t many places you can turn in the hip-hop world without bumping into will.i.am.

Songs About Girls contains a catchy mix that ranges from serious to downright ridiculous. There’s no denying will.i.am is extremely talented, applying his unique and funky style to both the beats and the lyrics.

However, the inclusion of several throwaway songs (most notably “I Got It from My Mama”) detracts from the album as a whole. Still, will.i.am breathes fun into just about everything he works on, and it’s good to see him still dishing out fresh material.
