The Black Eyed Peas star is set to head out again on his own in 2012.

Will.i.am has announced details of his new solo album '#willpower'.

The Black Eyed Peas frontman's second solo effort will be released next year, according to Rap-Up.

The follow-up to 2007's 'Songs About Girls' includes the Jennifer Lopez and Mick Jagger-featuring first single, 'T.H.E (The Hardest Ever)'.

Will.i.am will perform the song live for the first time alongside J-Lo at the American Music Awards this coming Sunday (20th November).

The rapper and producer recently visited South America, where he shot some music videos for the forthcoming album.

Despite working on his own material, the rapper recently shot down reports that the Black Eyed Peas were set to split up.
