The music video for the Will.i.am single “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)” featuring Mick Jagger and Jennifer Lopez has premiered on December 11, 2011.
As previously reported, the single was released on November 20, 2011, immediately after Will.i.am and Lopez performed the song on the 2011 American Music Awards.
The song clocks in at about four minutes, 45 seconds. Jagger is on the song about a minute before the song ends. Jagger appears in the music video for the song as a singer who is in outer space.

“T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)” is the first single from Will.i.am’s fourth solo album,”#willpower,” which is due out sometime in 2012. The single, which has gotten mostly negative reviews from music critics, has bombed in the United States. Just one week after “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)” debuted at No. 36 on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart, the song dropped to No. 90.
Will.i.am is a founding member of the Black Eyed Peas. The group is currently on hiatus.
December 23, 2011 update:
Will.i.am has released the song “Go Home” (featuring William Gartner and Mick Jagger) which sounds very similar to “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)” and features the same sample of Jagger’s vocals that are in “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever).”
