The Black Eyed Peas man has been trying to get the two female artists to team up on a new song he's written.

Will.i.am is reportedly close to securing an all-star female collaboration between Britney Spears and Cheryl Cole.

The 'This Is Love' star was first rumoured to be planning the team-up between the two stars earlier this summer and has only just managed to speak to X Factor star Britney about the song this week.

The conversations apparently took place when Will helped out Britney during the house judges segment of the show.

"There were rumours earlier this summer that the pair were going to duet but it wasn't until this week that Britney and Will had the discussion," a source told The Sun. "He's been trying to get them together since before he came on board as Cheryl's manager."

Will has already recorded a new collaboration himself with the 'Criminal' singer for his forthcoming record '#willpower' and is said to be working on production duties for Britney's new album.

"He told Britney he was writing a great new track and wanted his 'two favourite girls' to record it together at his home studio," declared the insider.

Meanwhile, Cherly has been busy preparing for her upcoming debut UK arena tour and Will is planning on creating a new technology based reality TV show.

He made history this year by becoming the first man to transmit a song live from Mars via the Curiosity rover on the red planet.
