Lewis Hamilton has the pop star girlfriend in the form of Nicole Scherzinger, but has denied that he has the pop star record, featuring on a track by vocalist Ana Lou.
The 2008 F1 world champion's name was linked with the record, which appeared on YouTube, but has taken to social media to deny any involvement:
Hey all. Have just heard that someone has put a song out saying it's me..LMAO I've never met this girl Ana nor heard of her. #WTF— Lewis Hamilton (@LewisHamilton) December 29, 2013
As for whether it was any good, people were quick to have their say.
The Daily Mail's Marc Andrews suggested it won't be the last we hear of Hamilton's music:
While the moody ballad is perhaps not as epic and grand as the charts might demand, it nonetheless demonstrates Lewis has the vocal chops, not to mention the music connections through Nicole Schzeringer (sic), to take this much further if he so desires.
That said, some on social media weren't so complimentary. In the comments section on YouTube where the recording is held, one fan wrote: "This is absolutely horrendous. I can't even make it past the 40 second mark. It's just autotune hell."
