Latin music legend Carlos Santana has found an unusual collaborator for his next studio album - Black Eyed Peas rapper WILL.I.AM.

The Mexican-born guitarist - who worked with Matchbox Twenty rocker ROB THOMAS on SANTANA's last studio recording , 1999s SMOOTH - handpicked the WHERE IS THE LOVE? hitmaker to help him with his new project.

And Santana was stunned by the Californian's work ethic. says, "He was like, 'Wow, I've never seen anyone so focused.

"I got to his studio at 10am, and we finished a song . It's called I AM SOMEBODY."
