Black Eyed Peas star has teamed up for former Pussycat Doll for new solo album.
Will.i.am has revealed that he has recorded a classical song with Nicole Scherzinger.
The Black Eyed Peas star told Capital FM that the track was one of a host of collaborations set to appear on his new solo album '#willpower'.
Unlike 'T.H.E (The Hardest Ever)' featuring Mick Jagger and Jennifer Lopez, Will.i.am said he wanted to release his track with Nicole online.
"I made this song with Nicole Scherzinger that you would never expect. It's classical music," he said.
"I have this girl singing like: 'Who's that?' The internet is very, very powerful – LMFAO have 300 millions views on 'Party Rock Anthem' – so sometimes you should make things just for the net."
He added: "This classic piece of music that I did with Nicole, it's beautiful. That girl sings like I've never heard anybody sing like that in pop culture. She is thebomb.com/isthatnicole?."
Will.i.am has also exclusively told Capital that his new album will feature the likes of Britney Spears and LMFAO.
