Ich habe keine speziellen Hobbies. Ich denke, ich mache einfach gerne was alle jungen Leute so mögen. Ich mag es ins Kino zu gehen, im Park rumzuhängen, manchmal Karten zu spielen und viel über Musik und Leute und so zu quatschen. Wenn ich allein bin, spiele ich Computerspiele, sehe fern oder lade meine eigenen Videos auf Youtube hoch. Ich schätze mal, dass ich mich mit dem Computer ganz gut auskenne. Aber ich bekomme immer Ärger von meinen Eltern, da sie nicht wollen, dass ich immer am Computer sitze oder vor dem Fernseher, wenn ich zu Hause bin. Sie schlagen vor, dass ich ein Musikinstrument lernen soll, so wie meine Schwester. Sie spielt Klavier, und ich finde, dass reicht für unsere Familie. Ich mache lieber was anderes, wobei ich nicht immer regelmäßig wohin gehen muss. Ich will lieber flexibel mit meiner Zeit sein, so dass ich spontan was Cooles mit meinen Freunden machen kann. Gestern, als wir aus der Schule kamen, haben wir beschlossen, schwimmen zu gehen, und haben es einfach gemacht. Das war super.
I don't have any special hobbies. I think I just like doing what all young people like. I like going to the movies, hanging out in the park, playing cards sometimes and chatting a lot about music, people and so on. When I am on my own I play computer games, watch tv, or upload my own YouTube videos. I guess my computer skills are not so bad. But I always get in trouble with my parents because they don't want me to be in front of the computer or tv when I am at home. They suggest I should learn to play an instrument like my sister does. She is playing the piano and I think that is enough for the whole family. I'd rather do other things where I don't have to go somewhere regularly. I want to be flexible with my time so that I can spontaneously join in some fun with my friends. Yesterday we decided to go swimming when we came out of school and just went. That was great.

The song was co-written with A. R. Rahman, composer of "Urvasi Urvasi", from the soundtrack of 1994 TamilIndian filmKadhalan, sampled in the song. "It's My Birthday" also samples the popular Jamaican songs "Pull Up to Mi Bumper" by Konshens & J Capri, "Fi Di Jockey" by Aidonia and Bounty Killer chanting 'Big Ship Sailing'.
Lewis Corner of Digital Spy gave the song a moderate review stating, saying: "The final result doesn't wander too far away from his recent successful offerings, but with a hint of the new here and there, will.i.am proves once again he can have his cake and eat it whether it's his birthday or not." 
"It's My Birthday" topped the charts in the United Kingdom―where will.i.am appears as a coach on The Voice UK―becoming will.i.am's tenth chart-topper there (including five as a member of The Black Eyed Peas), as well as Wise's first chart success in that country.
