It's been almost a month since will.i.am promised us a banging "Scream & Shout" remix and it seems that will.i.am has called on some hip-hop all-stars for the remix to his hit single. According to MTV News, will is turning his dance-floor chart-topper into a hip-hop fest with appearances from Lil Wayne, Diddy, Waka Flocka Flame, Hit-Boy, and of course, Britney, bitch. A video was shot on Wednesday in Los Angeles.
Waka acknowledged his participation in the remix, tweeting, “Scream and Shout remix video #ComingRealSoon.”
The original song is currently No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, while will’s solo album #willpower is due later this year. This will likely be an attempt to help push the song towards the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Additional support is expected from Urban and Rhythmic stations.
No word just yet on when the video will be released, but it is rumored that the remixed version of the song will be featured in a new Beats by Dre commercial during the Superbowl.
