Cheryl Cole teams up with her music buddy Will.i.am for the UK "Special Mix" of "Check It Out". The flirty-fun single, written by the Black Eyed Peas star and American hip-hop queen Nicki Minaj, highlights samples of The Buggles hit "Video Killed the Radio Star".
Cole has worked on and off with Will.i.am for a couple of years, having lent her backing vocals to his "Heartbreaker" single in 2008. The American rapper has also collaborated with The X Factor beauty on her first two solo outings, 3 Words and Messy Little Raindrops.
The video kind of plays off an "ode to Japanese culture and Japanese anime" as Minaj explained to The Metro. The original song appears on her forthcoming album, Pink Friday.
