Weaving a mysterious and enticing beat, Will.I.I.M exudes charisma and confidence with his soulful voice, while Britney’s irrepressible drive and energy takes the song to new heights. The irresistible charm and infectious energy of “Mind Your Business” solidify its status as the definitive anthem of 2023.
The launch follows Will.I.M.’s recent solo return a decade after “The Formula” with Lil Wayne and Formula 1®. “The Formula” was also the first song in a collaboration between Will.I.M and Formula 1, with Formula 1 enjoying Will.I.M as its first “Global Artist in Residency”.

It is her first album since 2013’s #willpower, which included the worldwide hit “Scream & Shout” with Britney Spears. Always pushing the boundaries and embracing innovation, will.i.im is all set to take its craft to unprecedented heights by 2023.
