Will.I.Am: 'I Gotta Feeling' Came To Me In A Dream

He even writes music in his sleep

By Rebecca Merriman on Friday 24th February 2012 Photo by WENN is certainly one talented hit-maker. The Black Eyed Peas front man has admitted that not only does he make music during the day but that he even pens tracks in his sleep.

The star claimed that the 2009 hit ‘I Gotta Feeling’ came to him in a dream and it’s not the first song that has been inspired by sleep.

He told BBC Newsbeat: "I've written songs right from a sleep. Have you ever had a dream where there's a melody in your dream? I'll wake up out of my sleep and record that!”

"'I Gotta Feeling' was one of those songs. From a random mumble, listening to conversations in the back and making sense of melodies." He added.

Clearly the music-maestro is onto a good thing, as the song went on to become one of the most downloaded songs of all time and has sold 13 million units worldwide.

Not bad for a night’s sleep.

The singer will release his first solo album this year and has confirmed collaborations with Alicia Keys and Cheryl Cole.
