Will.i.am Solo Album ‘#willpower’ Out Next Year, Single “T.H.E.” Out Next Week

It turns out that The E.N.D. wasn’t the end of will.i.am’s penchant for abbreviations. The Black Eyed Peas member will debut solo single “T.H.E.” (aka “The Hardest Ever”) at Sunday’s American Music Awards via a performance with Jennifer Lopez. Both Lopez and Mick Jagger appear on the will.i.am/Audiobot/Dallas Austin co-production, according to Rap-Up.com, and it will serve as the lead offering from Will’s forthcoming solo album #willpower, which is due out sometime in 2012. Guess the actual date hasn’t been hash(tagg)ed out?
