CHERYL COLE featuring WILL.I.AM ‘3 Words’ [Release Date 21/12/2009]


'3 Words' is probably the centrepiece of the album '3 Words' and rightly so… it's a gob-stopping, robo-pop, R&B duet that stops you in your tracks! "I still can't quite believe that that song is mine," says Cheryl now, justifiably chuffed with the results. Cheryl Cole releases her new single '3 Words' on December 21st 2009 through Fascination Records. The single sees her collaborate with Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.I.Am. As well as co-writing the song with her he also shares lead vocals. '3 Words' has a lean sound which straddles an imaginary dancefloor somewhere between Ibiza and South Beach, Miami, welding it to a lyric that sounds as if it were crafted from the finer end of a Geordie text message. The song has already been picked by many as the highlight from Cheryl's recently-released album. The Guardian said "It's as brave and novel a song as anything [Girls Aloud] have released."
