The Black Eyed Peas star, a California native, has beenbased in London while serving as a mentor on 'The Voice' and was inspired to bring his company over to British shores due to the country's thriving pop scene, reported Daily Star.
"My label is now based in the UK. I had a label over in America, (Black Eyed Peas bandmate) Fergie signed to my label and LMFAO and Macy Gray and Black Eyed Peas and I thought, you know what, I want to base my label out in the UK, because I like this place, it's fresh.
"Why was I making music in America when it succeeds first in the UK? That's dumb. I've got a global perspective, thinking global and acting local," he said.
