“Which band can claim to take over the dancefloor with a twist of R'n'B, Radiopop and Electronica? Who has the secret recipe for a sound that equally stimulates teenagers and people in their 30ies? Who sounds as sexy as Justin Timberlake and The Soft Pink Truth combined? And who was the cover star of the San Francisco Guardian in May 2005 with the headline "dance, punk, dance"? Hey Willpower is one of the hottest acts in the R'n'B Underground emerging from the US.”
The title "Hundredaire" (let you go) is a play on words of Kelis and Andre 3000's "Millionaire". An homage with a life of its own. No money, same problems. Will Schwartz from Hey Willpower sings it like he means it; a postmodern take on a love gone awry. Inspired by real life events, and masterpieces like "You Keep Me Hangin' On" and "Walk On By", it's a story everyone can understand. Whether it's the beat of the snare that happened to be there, the Yamaha "Bar Mitzvah Keyboard" on which Will plays the lead riff, or the vocal choir that catapults the simple phrase in the chorus "Let You Go" straight into your heart, there's something for anyone who has felt the highest of highs, and the lowest of lows.
