"I'm pretty sure it's going to be fun working with Andre 3000," says The Queen of Soul.

Aretha Franklin says rapper Andre 3000 will help her finish the final four tracks for her upcoming covers album, due to hit shelves this September.

"I'm pretty sure it's going to be fun working with [Andre 3000], just watching his videos and things," Franklin told Billboard. "And, of course, they all come with great music, so I expect that."

To date the Queen of Soul has been recording with producers Babyface and Daryl Simmons. Renditions of classics like Gladys Knight & the Pips' "Midnight Train to Georgia," Barbra Streisand's "People," Donna Summer's "Last Dance" and Tina Turner's "What's Love Got to Do With It" will be on the album. She's even considering a remake of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep."

We are so here for this album!
