Will.i.am and Cheryl Cole are "fine" after receiving minor injuries in a car accident early yesterday morning in Los Angeles, The Guardian reports. The Black Eyed Peas leader was driving with Cole in the passenger seat when his Cadillac ran into a parked car around 3:30 a.m. PDT, after leaving a recording studio. Cole was treated at the scene, but will.i.am was taken to the hospital in a neck brace with a bloody nose.

"Car accidents are not dope . . . I'm glad I'm o.k," tweeted will.i.am, while Cole tweeted, "Don't worry me and @iamwill are fine, promise x."

Will.i.am debuted his song "Reach For The Stars" earlier this week, teaming with NASA to broadcast the track from the Curiosity rover on Mars.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
