Will.i.am was not impressed when his new album was leaked online this week and has now told fans they he will be delaying its release.
The rapper took to Twitter to urge the public not to share the demos, which were stolen from his car last month. "Please don't promote the leaks, this song will be taken down," will.i.am tweeted.
"If you know anyone that knows the people responsible #stopthem."
He added: "I'm trying to finish #willpower… & now because of all the leaks I have to push the album back to make new songs. I will give you updates soon."
The album is expected to include collaborations with Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Nicole Scherzinger and Britney Spears and was set to be released next month.

The Voice judge was meant to be celebrating the release of his new album last month but it seems that people had other plans for his night.
The singer/producer had been at his #Willpower album listening party last month, when he left to find that his custom-made coupe had been stolen.
On August 13 the Black Eyed Peas star had driven Nicole Scherzinger n the white gullwing to the party in Hollywood.

Before the party he tweeted:''Me and @NicoleScherzy getting ready to go to my listening party...#willpower night.''
After partying till the early hours it seemed that somebody else was now enjoying the car not Will himself.
He tweeted: ''My car was stolen...what the f**k..? 'Where is my f**king car...??? This isn't funny anymore.''
An hour later, he added: ''I'm going to be optimistic and pray that my car is returned and safe... '#givemebackmycar this joke is getting old...''
His car was finally returned to him...but we reckon that Will.I.Am would look much better in a nice Mini Cooper.
