 background
During the recording of The Black Eyed Peas' sixth studio album, The Beginning, band colleague Fergie announced in an interview that Will was in the process of recording a new solo album, tentaively entitled "Black Einstein". Will formally announced that he was in the process of recording a fourth solo album, with some material being recorded under the pseudonym Zuper Blahq. In January 2010, a cut from the album, "I'm In the House", a collaboration with Steve Aoki, was released as a single, charting at #29 on the UK Singles Chart due to strong downloads. In October 2010, a second cut from the album, "Check It Out", a collaboration with American rapper Nicki Minaj, peaked at #4 on the UK Singles Chart. In February 2011, a third cut from the album, "Dance", a collaboration with Natalia Kills, peaked at #62 on the UK Singles Chart.

None of the songs managed to chart, however, Will announced that he was going to remix the tracks for inclusion on Black Einstein. In June 2011, a fourth cut from the album, "Forever", a collaboration with Wolfgang Gartner, was released as a single. It was around this time that Will announced that he changed the title of the album from Black Einstein to #willpower. The video premiered on August 26, 2011.
