London, May 6 : Recording 'Heartbreaker' with Cheryl Cole has certainly left Will.i.am with a crush on the Girls Aloud singer.
The Black Eyed Peas star has confessed that he has a crush on Cole and was totally smitten by her when she flew to LA to record 'Heartbreaker' with him.
"If Cheryl was single, hell yeah! She'd just have to holler. I saw her a few days ago. She's doing good - she was looking hot," the Mirror quoted him, as saying.
When the news reached 24-year-old Cheryl, she was taken aback and was certainly humbled.
"I can't believe he had a crush. How sweet," she said.
