Black Eyed Peas star Will.I.Am looks set to score his first solo Number 1 this Sunday with new single This Is Love.
This Is Love is the follow-up to his previously highest-charting Number 3 solo hit T.H.E (The Hardest Ever) featuring Mick Jagger and Jennifer Lopez, which was released earlier this year. The track, co-produced by Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello, features Dutch singer/songwriter Eva Simons. Both tracks are taken from his upcoming solo record #willpower.
