Will.I.Am was allowed into Paris’s Louvre museum at 2am to record part of a song entitled “Smile Mona Lisa” in front of the famed painting by Leonardo da Vinci.
“That song touches me because I recorded a large portion of that song inside the Louvre, next to Mona Lisa’s picture,” the lead singer of the Black Eyed Peas said, adding that the song would appear on his next solo album. “They let me go to the Louvre at 2 am to record the guitars for that song, I wanted to capture the ambiance of the Louvre, that Mona Lisa lives in. That was exciting, to walk through the Louvre at 2 am with the manager,”
he said. Via: ArtDaily
