Will.i.am Wanted Michael Jackson And Cheryl Cole Duet

11 January 2011

Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am wanted to introduce Michael Jackson to Cheryl Cole -- because he believes the pair would have created a great duet.

Will.i.am told Michael all about Cheryl, and says he was desperate to bring the two singers together for a collaboration.

The rapper tells Britain's The Sun, "I told him (Jackson) Cheryl was the hottest thing in the U.K. and could sing and dance - basically, she was the complete package.

"He would have worked with her, no doubt, and it would have been something special. They are both total perfectionists when it comes to their work so it would have been something really big.

"It's just a shame it can never happen now."
But will.i.am is still convinced Cheryl will be a success if she wants to launch a career in America.

"There are still lots of great artists waiting to work with Cheryl when she gets over to the U.S. - The Peas, Justin Bieber and Usher," he said.

"But her and Michael would have created something that would make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Michael was excited about everything I told him about Cheryl. It could have been one of the great collaborations of recent history."
