Cher Lloyd drops Will.i.Am duet from 'Sticks + Stones'

Cher Lloyd's long-awaited debut album was released today, November 7, but doesn't feature the collaboration she worked on with Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.Am. 

The talented young singer was expected to include the duet on the finished record, entitled 'Sticks + Stones', but it didn't make the cut and she explained to Digital Spy that she's unsure of the reason why it wasn't on the final tracklisting:

"You know as much as I know [about why it didn't make the album], but the album isn't missing a spark without it."

Despite not knowing why the collaboration was left out, Lloyd added that she wanted her debut album to be a mixed bag and that she couldn't be happier with how it turned out:

"It's like a jukebox. Everything is very different. Me and my team created this album for one purpose and that is for people to be able to listen to the whole thing without skipping a track."
