The Black Eyed Peas man admits that Britain is the first place he truly found success after the triumph of 'Where Is The Love?'

Will.i.am has revealed that the UK is the first place he found success and his new song 'This Is Love' is a dedication to Britain.

The 'Great Times' star told Capital FM how much he appreciates the "love" he has experienced in the UK since the release of the Black Eyed Peas track 'Where Is The Love?'.

"The first place that I ever had success was here in the UK and it was a song called 'Where Is The Love?'," he admitted. "Throughout my whole career after the success of 'Where Is The Love?' – I found the love and it's here in the UK and that's why this is 'This Is Love'."

The star premiered the track for the first time on Capital FM when he stopped by Leicester Square on an impromptu visit last week.

The song features Eva Simons and was produced alongside Swedish House Mafia's Steve Angello and is expected to feature on his forthcoming new studio album '#willpower'.
