SUPER-producer, singer and Black Eyed Peas member Will.i.am returns this year with yet another new partner in crime – Girls Aloud’s Cheryl Cole.

While hanging out in LA, the Girls Aloud singer caught the artist and producer’s eye and he insisted she feature in the video for his new single, Heartbreaker, the second to be released from his third album Songs About Girls.

Fresh from the street dancing classes which she was taking as part of her Passions Of Girls Aloud ITV programme, Cheryl held her own with the hip hop professionals and also recorded vocals for the track.

Heartbreaker comes hot on the heels of the Black Eyed Peas frontman’s controversial and potent political video, Yes We Can, which he wrote in support of the 2008 US presidential campaign of Barack Obama.

A host of celebrities, including Scarlett Johansson, Nicole Scherzinger, Amber Valletta, Herbie Hancock and John Legend, featured in the video which racked up over 3 million Youtube views within a week of being uploaded.

And if this award-winning artist, producer, fashion designer and political advocate isn’t busy enough, he has now added acting to his list of accomplishments and is set to appear in X Men Origins: Wolverine later this year.

Heartbreaker featuring Cheryl Cole is released on May 5 on Interscope through Polydor Records in the UK.
