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!!!

Oops, they're doing it again!
Britney Spears' new music is well on its way and in case that wasn't enough to get you dancing with glee, we have some super exciting news!!!
Brit Brit is bringing back Femme Fatale collaborator will.i.am to executive produce her ENTIRE eighth album and they've already been working on her next artistic creation for months!
The Black Eyed Pea spilled:
"After I did a song on Femme Fatale – 'Big Fat Bass' – and then we did 'Scream & Shout,' she really liked the way we worked because of my approach. So they asked me to be involved in, not producing and writing every song, but to be an executive producer on the songs."
As for the theme of the album, the producer said that he will do ANYTHING to make sure the new songs reflect

will.i.am's new album drops later this month and we're so excited we can hardly sleep!
The 38-year-old megastar tweeted a first glimpse of the new packaging last night and we almost couldn't believe our eyes — it's really friggin' orange!!
If his sweet compilations with Justin Bieber on #thatPOWER and Britney Spears on Scream & Shout haven't convinced you to pre-order #willpower, maybe his beautiful face and perfectly sculpted hair plastered across an orange background will!
This is the masterful musician's first solo effort since The Black Eyed Peas went on break back in 2011 and we're convinced it will be fabulous!
#willpower hits stores on April 23 — orange you glad he's finally back? LOLz!!

But let's back up a tick, shall we?!
So a few days back, the RUMORED official tracklist for will's latest appeared on-line, featuring a song titled Let's Go!

"I didn't say anything about her singing. I said something about her British accent. We know it's Britney Spears singing the song. I never said anything."
- Eve, attempting to 'explain' her Watch What Happens Live already-refuted claim that Britney Spears did not actually sing on the will.i.am single Scream & Shout, while in Washington, D.C. yesterday.
