13th March 2006
On the 13th of March, the Black Eyed Peas release their new single 'Pump It', Will says, "I was in Brazil doing some CD shopping and I came across this compilation and I thought it was one thing but it turned out to be something else. The Dick Dale song 'Miserlou,' was on it. At first I was angry Ã¢Â€Â“ this isn't what I wanted to buy but then I thought, this song is hot. I said, 'we should do a song like this.' I jump-started the computer and made some beats on the train. Then we had to fly to Tokyo and I tightened up the beat on the plane. Then I recorded vocals in this park in Tokyo. And that's how 'Pump It' happened."
