will.i.am Teases Britney Spears, Shakira, Alicia Keys Collaborations

Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am has discussed several high-profile collaborators on his forthcoming solo album.

The urban star’s new single ‘T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)’ features Mick Jagger and Jennifer Lopez, but isn’t the only song on the set to feature an A-list pal.

Britney Spears, Shakira, Nicole Scherzinger, Alicia Keys and LMFAO are among the artists confirmed to appear on #willpower, with the producer telling Capital FM: “I have a song with Alicia Keys – me, Alicia and Swedish House Mafia.

“Me and Shakira have been trying to finish the stuff we started, and me and Britney is really crazy.”

He continued: “So we got a song with me, LMFAO and Eva Simons. A song with me and Busta Rhymes and Swizz Beatz. I got a whole other bunch of collaborations.”

He also claimed his duet with Nicole Scherzinger qualifies as classical.

“This classical piece of music that I did with Nicole, it’s beautiful,” he said. “That girl sings like I’ve never heard anybody sing like that in pop culture. She is thebomb.com/isthatnicole?”

The single ‘T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)’ is released on February 5. Will is currently filming his role as a coach on the BBC’s new import, The Voice.
