It seems that Andre 3000 is doing everything in the studio besides working on a new OutKast album. At least he’s keeping himself busy with his latest project, which finds him teaming up with a legend.

According to Billboard magazine, 3 Stacks will be producing 4 songs on Aretha Franklin‘s forthcoming album, on which the Queen of Soul will be singing a bunch of covers — Donna Summer’s ‘Last Dance’ and Tina Turner’s ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It’ among them. She couldn’t be more excited about the effort.

“I’m pretty sure it’s going to be fun working with [Andre 3000],” stated Franklin. “Just watching his videos and things. It should be fun. And of course they all come with great music, so I expect that.”

The Dungeon family member stepped in for producer Don Was, who was no longer able to work on the album. It’s likely Clive Davis, executive producer of the LP, brought Andre to Aretha, since the two were both on Arista records, which was founded by Davis.

Babyface will also be producing songs on Aretha’s album, expected to arrive in September.
