Will.i.am Impersonates Cheryl Cole As He Reveals Rap Song Was Meant To Be Secret - Audio
The 'Call My Name' star's manager tells Capital FM the track was written during a period of "drama" in Cheryl's life.
Will.i.am has admitted he was surprise by Cheryl Cole's decision to reveal that they had recorded a rap song together – but admitted it is "really dope".
Earlier this month, the 'Call My Name' star revealed she had written the hip-hop track during sessions for her new album 'A Million Lights', but decided to leave it off the final tracklisting.
Speaking to Capital FM, Will.i.am, who is also Cheryl's manager, said the track came together during a period of "drama" in the star's life – notably her departure from The X Factor USA last year.
Will, who jokingly impersonated Cheryl's Newcastle accent in his response, said: "I can't believe she told people about that. It was supposed to be just for the hard drive.
"We were going through a lot, with drama – The X Factor – and 'the next factor' drama.

He added: "We did the song and she said: 'Put some rap in', and I was like, is that a question? 'Put some rap in'. When she talks a lot of the times it sounds like she's asking me questions.
"I was like, I don't think we should put it out, but it's fresh. Like, really, really, really dope."
Will.i.am is currently preparing to perform at Isle of MTV in Malta, alongside Nelly Furtado and Flo Rida.
The Black Eyed Peas star is currently putting the finishing touches to his new solo album '#willpower', which will include current single 'This Is Love'.
