Will.i.am has visited Dubai for the Dubai Music Week, on Wednesday (25th September) he attended press conference together with Quincy Jones and Timbaland at the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray hotel. They were asked questions by the public and media
“There are wonderful artists that come from all over the world, but very few artists that become global acts – JLo, Puerto Rico; Shakira, Colombia,” he said.“We haven’t really seen an Arabic or Asian superstar yet, so the world is waiting for someone from the Middle East to be the big global superstar. A lot of us think the next Michael Jackson or Lionel Richie or Diana Ross or Donna Summer could come from this region. We’ve done that with our group, focused on America – but tried to be relevant in every country. I’d like to walk hand in hand with someone from this region and try to crack them globally. That sounds fun.
Yesterday (26th September), all of the above mentioned artist performed alongside Selena Gomez and Bollywood Night. The celerities also met up at Dubai Music Week Kick-Off Dinner at the Supper club.
