Will.i.am Compares Cheryl Cole To Michael Jackson

The Black Eyed Peas star and singer's manager teases fans about her new album.

Will.i.am has compared Cheryl Cole to Michael Jackson, describing her as a "complete perfectionist".

The Black Eyed Peas star, who manages the Girls Aloud singer's solo career, said fans should be excited about Cheryl's forthcoming album.

"I can't give too much away but Cheryl's album is going to be big," he said. "Like Michael Jackson she is a complete perfectionist.

"Unless she is 100% happy with something she just won’t put it out there."

Will.i.am added to the Daily Star: "She has got some of the biggest artists and producers in the industry to work with her, not just because she is talented but because everybody who meets her loves her.

"She is one of the most likable people in the industry and to be genuine is as important as talent."

Cheryl has yet to announced details about her new album, although lead single 'Call My Name' is expected to be unveiled this month.
