Will.i.am is always experimenting with new sounds, but we're not sure his new music video is the renaissance he's hoping for…
The former Black Eyed Peas frontman teamed up with Nicole Scherzinger for his new single Mona Lisa Smile.

Though Will did make up for the song with a weird, artsy music video — which shows the singers in moving paintings like something straight out of Hogwarts!
