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 Bubl├â┬⌐ 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)


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!!
