Will.i.am Announces New Solo Album
Even though there have been many rumors that the Black Eyed Peas are disbanding, one saying that the group was going to replace Fergie, will.i.am has steadfastly denied the gossip about the BEPs parting ways. Despite this, the group appears to be taking a hiatus since Will is getting ready to release a solo album, entitled ‘#willpower.’
According to Digital Spy, the BEP frontman will drop ‘#willpower’ some time next year, and the album will feature his new Jennifer Lopez-featured track ‘T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)’ (we’ve seriously had enough of the abbreviated song titles). It hasn’t been confirmed as to whether or not will’s album will include ‘Hard,’ which is the track that leaked earlier this year featuring Mick Jagger and J. Lo.
The 2012 album will be released under Universal Music Group and will mark will’s second solo effort. ‘#willpower’ (we bet that will be trending on Twitter in no time) follows the hitmaker’s 2008 LP ‘Songs About Girls,’ which featured Cheryl Cole on the tune ‘Heartbreaker.’
Will and Jennifer Lopez will perform ‘T.H.E.’ for the first time live at the American Music Awards on Nov. 20.
