The King of Pop was apparently eager to meet Cheryl
Black Eyed Peas star Will, 36 – who manages Cheryl‘s US career – says he tried to hook Michael up with the 28-year-old singer before his death at the age of 50 in 2009.
‘I told him Cheryl was the hottest thing in the UK and could sing and dance – basically, she was the complete package,’ Will recalls.
‘He would have worked with her, no doubt, and it would have been something special.
‘It could have been one of the great collaborations of recent history.
‘Michael was excited about everything I told him about Cheryl.
‘I was gonna write them a song.’
Sadly, the idea wasn’t to be.
But former X Factor judge Cheryl recently revealed that she’s finished recording her 3rd solo album, which is expected to be released this spring.
‘Yesss.! The album is DONE !!! *dancing all over the place* I’m Soooo HAPPY and EXCITED to share with you !! #CherylMusic on its way.. Booyaa,’ she Tweeted.
