Will.i.am holds back Cher Lloyd track

Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am, is reportedly blocking the release of a track he recorded in collaboration with Cher Lloyd.

Will.i.am's decision to hold back the track follows Cheryl Cole's recent sacking from the US version of X-Factor, as he remains angry at the way she has been treated with the whole affair. 

The track in question was recorded last year, immediately after Cher Lloyd was voted off the show, and was expected to be an instant chart hit. 

Earlier in the week it was reported that Will.i.am was demanding answers from Cheryl Cole over her rumoured reunion with Ashley.
