Will.i.am's #Willpower Withers & Dies Despite Help From Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, & Miley Cyrus!

will i am willpower weak debut number 9 billboard chart miley cyrus britney spears justin bieber

The numbers are in and it's official: will.i.am's latest solo album is an HUGE BUST!

The singer clearly fell victim to one of the classic blunders — the most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia," but only slightly less well-known is "never release your album when Michael Bublé is charting!"

Despite help from Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and even Chris Brown — who was arrested for mercilessly beating Rihanna in 2009 — #Willpower sold only 29,000 copies!!!

Coming in below everyone from Fall Out Boy to Rob Zombie, will's solo effort barely cracked the Top Ten!!

Ch-ch-check out the rest of the list…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Billboard 200 charts:

1) Michael Bublé, To Be Loved (195,000)
2) Fantasia, Side Effects of You (91,000)
3) Justin Timberlake, The 20/20 Experience (74,000)
4) Phoenix, Bankrupt! (50,000)
5) Fall Out Boy, Save Rock and Roll (36,000)
6) Blake Shelton, Based on a True Story (36,000)
7) Rob Zombie, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor (34,000)
8) Kid Cudi, Indicud (32,000)
9) will.i.am, #Willpower (29,000)
10) Pink, The Truth About Love (29,000)

Yikes!!

Will can Scream & Shout until he's blue in the face, but — if he wants to buy diamond-crusted rims for his new ride — he should get back to work with The Black Eyed Peas!!

    i hate chris brown after what he did to rihanna, and obviously you do too. but you really need to STOP mentioning that incident every time you post a story that includes him in it!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Seriously? I'm not saying you should pretend to be a saint, I'm pretty sure you're not. But that was an underhanded and unnecessary comment in regards to Chris Brown. I cannot say I have any positive qualms about your character, but I'm sure even that was beneath you. And if Rihanna has forgiven him, what gives you the audacity?

    perez, you are so gross. Not a fan of will.i.am, or cbrown, but this post is totally unecessary!

    Right, that comment about Chris brown was so unnecessary



  6. 6

    The CONSTANT Amanda Bynes posts are unnecessary, always saying what Chris Brown did is that exact right response to that clown. He got no punishment whatsoever, so this is it, clearly describing what he did every time he is mentioned. #NeverForget



  7. 7

    Everything about "Will.i.am" annoys me.



  8. 8

    stop pretending to care



  9. 9

    Convince us that you don't still have it in for him.

    Don't care about the Chris Brown comment, it was disgusting what he did but Rhiana is as much the fool for going back…

    However LOVE the Princess Bride reference! LOL-ing at my desk at work

    Maybe it's because he steals ALL of his music? Just a thought

  13. Shhh says – reply to this

    So about the album cover, where are his shoulders?
    Does he have shoulders?
    Or will he need to steal those from someone else too?



  14. 14

    Really it was necessary that Chris Brown comment? come on!!! STOP mentioning in every single freaking damn post about him!!! Let the man be!!! It's okay if you hate him or whatever but STOP IT

    What do you mean by "never get involved in a land war in Asia"? Q rayos insinúas Pérez???

    yeah this whole article was ruined by your chris brown comment…It's like really buddy? we get it already…why is it your personal mission to keep reminding everybody what happened in 2009? No ones ever gonna forget, so you can give it up now…I used to like you, but that kinda sealed the deal right there. Blah. Btw..Will-I-AM sucks..all his music sounds the same.

    I'm glad the majority of people had the sam thoughts as me when they read the Chris Brown comment. I'm not a fan of CB, and I don't think what he did should ever be forgotten but that was unnecessary. It had nothing to do with the story which makes it sound as though you completely went off track. We all know what happened so why don't you just mention it when the story is actually about what he did - like when he was at court a little while ago. There's no need to bring it up here, that was really low Perez. You're a horrible person

    WORST ALBUM COVER EVER! THAT'S WHY. I BLAME CHRIS BROWN.

    Pls give chris brown a break….other white men who beat their wives or girlfriends do u keep refering to thier mistakes…or the gay couples who have been hitting oher recently i dont see u mentioning them as voilent…let it go perez,stop being a bully and biased



  20. 20

    THANK YOU PEREZ!!!! Thank you for reminding people, women beaters should never get our money!!! To all you people with negative comments toward Perez about his CB blurb. Fuck off! He has every right to post that and for all of you to be against that are losers!

    Actually, the single[the power] is doing better than the whole album. It's in the top 10 on i-tune sales in many countries-wonder why? Initials are J.B.

    I feel so bad but I can't stop lol'ing at how bad his album failed.

    Is it completely necessary for you to 4 years later STILL be shitting on Chris Brown? Get over yourself you clown, you're just making yourself seem more and more pathetic



  25. 25

    Oh!……Okay
    Chris Brown: Hits a women. 4 years ago!
    Reaction: It's 2013 that was uncalled for. Rihanna forgives him. Really Perez did you have to bring it up!…etc

    Justin Bieber: Smokes weed!
    Reaction: He's the Devil himself. Downward spiral. His 15 are over. Next Lindsay Lohan….etc

    Britney Spears: Has a meltdown
    Reaction: She was never going to make it. Talentless. Bye Britney hope u never come back!…..etc

    Regardless of how sorry Chris was or How long ago it was bottom line : He Hit A Women! And that is wrong.
    It's shocking how everyone is backing him Even FEMALES Shame On You. So he's hot let's forgive him

    To the females defending Chris: If you ever fall victim to Abuse are you going to Forgive that person?

    Sincerly: A 16 year old!

    Re: hayley – How does Will.i.am suck? He was part of Black Eyed Peas, and almost everyone I know thinks that group is awesome. I also think that group is awesome. So he has plenty of money whether his solo album flopped or not…

    Will.i.am knows his beats but he sucks in singing i mean its the same tone and rythem as the rest and its so repudiative even i can can sing his parts. He uses future Artis to help him out and use them for there fan base. Sorry but he should just stop thinking that he can be a singer or rapper the Justin beaver song he produces and the scream and shout song have the same rhythm and he raps the same on both songs. this dude needs to fade away



  29. 29

    Why do people get mad when people bring up Chris Brown's much-publicized beating of Rihanna? It happened…The holocaust happened, the wiping out of 90% of Native American in North and South America happened, Britney shaving her head happened, Lindsay's vagina happened, Kim Kardashian's sex tape happened…Get my point? It may not be pretty, but we should NEVER FORGET.



  30. 30

    AND…Will.i.am's album flopped because everyone knows he has basically been recycling the same beats and song formulas since Elephunk…it was fresh then, but after four albums of the same exact sound (and also a sound he jacked from other artists after being at EDC or Coachella)…People get tired of it. Also, he's just not relatable or even interesting as a person. His fan base is Fergie's fanbase and we all know she hasn't been in music since the Peas last album…Just bad marketing, bad direction, bad timing, bad look…everything is awful. He needs to ditch the dance music and producing everyone's record and go back to Black Eyed Peas because he spread himself too thin and now…well, no one cares.

    Re: ivan – In worldwide sales…When you account for the fact that the United States is about 65% of the total buying power worldwide, that's not saying much.

    The reason of the success of SCREAM and SHOUT is BRITNEY SPEARS. It's classified as a Britney song. And nobody cares Bieber and Cyrus.. Thats why this album flopped and William makes no sense..
