Will.i.am premieres song - from Mars

Rapper will.i.am can boast of an accomplishment that is out of this world: His latest single premiered from Mars, making it the first song to debut on another planet.

The Black Eyed Peas singer wrote the song, "Reaching for the Stars," to mark the successful landing of NASA's Curiosity rover on the Red Planet this month.

A far cry from his regular hip-hop tunes, it features a 40-piece orchestra set to a futuristic beat.

The song is set to transcend time and cultures, he said.

    Great accomplishment for an entertainer & it's a pretty cool thing to hear about! He is in Showbiz after all, so I don't expect anything "Hollywood" does to change the world! Do we expect the NFL to be poignant & intelectual? Hella, No! It's there for entertainment even if they broadcast from Saturn! We, regular people, are the 1's who change the world, w/words, actions & votes! Will.i.am's accomplishment isn't meant to feed starving kids, it's an "oooh, ahhh, how cool" moment! He did himself proud!!
