London: Black Eyed Peas singer will.i.am is said to have met with top producer David Guetta to help Cheryl Cole make it as a solo star in the US.
The 36-year-old American rapper has taken a break from his band to arrange a series of alliances – first and foremost with the instant hit-maker and close pal Guetta.
“Cheryl will be a top solo star in the US, if Will has anything to do with it. The man is so well connected, and he sleeps, breathes and eats music,” the Mirror quoted a source as saying.
“He has a studio at home in which he is trying out new sounds for Cheryl. He wants the best and is very picky.
“David is an old friend and has produced some of the best dance anthems of the past few years, so it’s a good place to start,” the source added.
The 43-year-old French mega-producer has successfully created massive tracks for Rihanna, Madonna, Flo Rida, Snoop Dogg, Black Eyed Peas, and will be working with Brit singer Jessie J next.
