will.i.am is orchestrating a duet between Cheryl Cole and Britney Spears.
The Black Eyed Peas rapper - who manages Cheryl - is persuading the 'Toxic' singer to record a track with the British star as he thinks the results would be "dope".
He told The Sun newspaper: "Britney would be great with Cheryl. When I'm recording with Britney I've four songs of Cheryl sitting there."
will.i.am - who has worked with Cheryl since her debut solo album, '3 Words' - has also spoken to R&B singer Rihanna about another possible duet.
He added: "I told Rihanna there was this girl called Cheryl Cole and she is the pop princess of England. I was telling people in America they should collaborate. Hopefully it will happen soon."
Cheryl and will.i.am have appeared on each other's solo records in the past; with her featuring on his singles 'HeartBreaker' and 'Check It Out', and him lending vocals to her 2009 track '3 Words'.
The Girls Aloud singer also rapped on a track produced by will.i.am which never made the final cut of her new album 'A Million Lights'.
She joked: "He still has a copy of it. I think I inspire him. I think you'll find on his next record I inspired him with my rap masterpiece."
