London: Rapper Will.i.am says his failed solo album "Songs About Girls" was a learning curve which helped him save the Black Eyed Peas.

The singer and producer released "Songs About Girls" in 2007, but it was received with lukewarm reviews and became a commercial flop, which helped the star learn how to approach the next album with his main band.

"It would have changed everything within the Black Eyed Peas if that album had been successful," contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.

"Because that album did not succeed, it taught me what to do with the Peas and what not to do," he said.
