Cheryl Cole is set to re-record the vocals on a track written and produced by Black Eyed Peas man will.i.am which was intended for Cher Lloyd.

M Is For Music reports that Cole will now put her vocals on the track and it will appear on the follow up to last year's 'Messy Little Raindrops'.

A 'source' is quoted as saying: "Cheryl loved the song from the start and didn't think twice about recording a version after she was sure it would not be appearing on Cher's album.



"There is no love lost between the two so she couldn't care less what anyone has to say about her being offered the song. It's a great track, so much so that it is being considered as the lead single from Cheryl's third album."

Lloyd told The Daily Star that she was "not fussed" about the missing track.

She added: "The song was good, but it just wasn’t meant to be."

The Mirror reported that will.i.am blocked use of the track after Cheryl Cole, who he now manages, was fired from The X Factor US.

Another 'source' told the paper: "Will wanted to sign Cher from the get-go and work on her career – but she signed to Syco affiliate Modest! Management because of what her contract said after the show. So he was miffed to start with.

"Now with everything that’s ­happened to Cheryl and the fact he's managing her too he's decided to play hardball with Syco. He's refusing to send the track into them and they just don't know what’s happening.

"The track they made was huge and Cher was counting on it being a single but it all looks like it is going to have to be pulled."
