will.i.am wants to film a music video on the set of 'Coronation Street'.
The 'Scream & Shout' hitmaker told cast members on the set of the British soap that he would love to film scenes for a video at the iconic Rovers Return pub.
Speaking about her meeting with the star, Beverley Callard - who plays Rovers Return landlady Liz McDonald on the soap - told the Daily Star newspaper: "will.i.am told us he does want to film his new video in the Rovers.
"He has said he is very keen but just needs to find a suitable time. He said we can all join in. We're all so excited."
Meanwhile, will.i.am previously teased that he is working on an "exciting" new Black Eyed Peas project.
He shared: "I don't want to say the word album because that just dates you, but we're doing a new project. It's really exciting. It's the best time to be creative right now with all the tools and folks doing what's best for themselves and creating in different mediums.
"I'm staying very vague but I'm so excited about the stuff we're going to do this year. And I love tech, so it's going to be jam-packed with some awesome f***ing tech."
Meanwhile, Charli XCX - who has collaborated with will.i.am in the past - previously revealed the rapper throws "random words" into his songs.
Asked what it was like to work with the 41-year-old star, Charli said: "Amazing! I love him. We were writing and he was like 'the verse - just say random words. Nobody listens to the verse'.
"I thought, 'Hm, interesting strategy.' Then I listened again to his songs and I was like, 'Fuck, he actually does this! He really believes in this strategy! But it's a really fun way to write songs."
