By Faith Karimi, CNN
(CNN) — 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.
