We have seen and heard a lot of interesting and rather unexpected collaborations over the years but it is fair to say that there have not been many that would be more surprising than that of Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway and Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am but it seems that the collaboration could happen. Anne Hathaway and will.i.am both voice characters in the animated movie sequel Rio 2 and, while promoting the movie together, will.i.am admitted that he would love to work with Anne on a track.
Will explained, "I want to make music with you! From Rio 1, I was like, ‘She sings like that?!’ … It would be so amazing to do music outside of an animated film. That would be freaking dope." This clearly sat well with Anne, who admitted that she felt honoured by his words of praise.
Hathaway responded, "I am blushing so hard right now. The thing is, he’s going to get me in the studio and then he’s going to hear me for real, and he’s going to be like, ‘Oh, never mind.’ [I mean] he works with [Black Eyed Peas'] Fergie! That’s like his 9am meeting. I can’t beat that!"
It would certainly be interesting to see what sort of sound a will.i.am and Anne Hathaway collaboration would come up with and we would love to see it actually happen. As for Rio 2, the movie also features the voices of Jesse Eisenberg, Jamie Foxx and Jermaine Clement, with the movie out now all over the world.
