Black Eyed Peas has just dropped an über funky sin­gle, Be Nice fea­tur­ing Snoop Dogg, which is will.i.am’s tweaked ver­sion of last week’s win­ning track from NBC’S song­writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion se­ries, Song­land. One of the writ­ers on the song is mu­sic pro­ducer, song­writer and DJ Anish Sood, who has writ­ten the cho­rus of the track. The Hello World (fea­tur­ing Ra­mona Arena) hit­maker is ob­vi­ously stoked about the hon­our and work­ing with will.i.am. Quiz him how he landed the num­ber and he en­thuses, “It’s a pretty crazy story! I met song­writer Adam Fried­man at his stu­dio in June last year and Be Nice was writ­ten in one session.

I worked on the funk synth and drum sam­ples. This Fe­bru­ary, Adam hit me up about par­tic­i­pat­ing in Song­land and a few months later, Be Nice had won the episode.” The guest judge will.i.am picked up the song to be the lead sin­gle on the next BEP al­bum.

Apart from this re­lease, Anish states that he has three sin­gles in the pipe­line, which will re­lease this year.
