The Script – Hall of Fame ft. will.i.am [music]
When Maroon 5’s Adam Levine teamed up with fellow The Voice US coach Christina Aguilera for ‘Moves Like Jagger’, the result was worldwide smash that took us all by surprise. In similar circumstances, their UK counterparts Danny O’Donoghue and will.i.am have also joined forces for a new single, but can they reap similar rewards with their own post-competition hook-up?
While Danny and will’s effort is less funky and more anthemic, both track’s sentiments are strikingly similar. “Standing in the hall of fame/ And the world’s gonna know your name,” O’Donoghue claims over a soaring piano-led chorus, before a powerhouse electric guitar solo ensues.
Much like its American equivalent, the result is an uplifting and addictive serenade of success that deserves a similar amount of recognition in the charts.
