Black Eyed Peas member will.i.am is defecting, at least when it comes to his record label. He has moved his record label from the U.S. to the U.K. will has been based in London while serving as a mentor the British edition of The Voice, and he was inspired to bring his company to the U.K. since it's teeming with talent.
"My label is now based in the U.K. I had a label over in America. Fergie signed to my label and LMFAO and Macy Gray and Black Eyed Peas and I thought, you know what, I want to base my label out in the U.K., because I like this place, it's fresh. Why was I making music in America when it succeeds first in the U.K.? That's dumb. I've got a global perspective, thinking global and acting local."
He also signed British pop singer Cheryl Cole of Girls Aloud to his label.
Do you think will made a wise move?
