Ludacris and Madonna

Ludacris' forthcoming album, 'Battle of the Sexes,' is a chance for both men and women to be heard. "I have a couple of guest appearances from different female MCs and female entertainers and a lot of the subject matter has to do with relationships from a male perspective and female perspective," he tells The BoomBox. "There's never been an album where you kind of get that and that's what I was going for. So that's really what 'Battle of the Sexes' is all about."

Ludacris does confirm that Monica and Lil' Kim are among the women on there, but he doesn't want to give away too much info yet. "That's the surprise, my friend. I wish I could tell you," he says when asked about some other names.

Okay, we can respect that, we're down to be surprised. But he does give away a couple that aren't on there, including his top choice. And who is his number one female duet partner? "Madonna, but I can tell you that has not happened yet," he says. "Maybe one day soon."

Another one that hasn't happened would be his daughter's top choice. "My daughter is eight years old and I'm forced to listen to Miley Cyrus' 'Party in the U.S.A.' all the time," he says. So he'd score a lot of cool points if he can pull off that meeting. "She hasn't met Miley, but maybe I can make that happen sooner or later." He did however impress his daughter with another of her heroes. "She loves Ciara," he notes. Whether that means Ciara is on the record we'll have to wait until March 9 to find out.
