New Kids on the Block want Madonna to appear on their album.
The recently reformed 80s boy band hope their producer Timbaland - who made '4 Minutes' with Madonna - will convince her to appear on their album too.
Singer Joey McIntyre, 35, said: "It's so exciting. We loved what Timbaland did with Madonna's '4 Minutes' and we can't wait to see what he has in store for us."
His bandmate Jordan Knight, 37, added: "I know he's putting in a good word for us to have Madonna on the album. It's looking good. Fingers crossed."
The band also revealed this week they are collaborating with pop legend Michael Jackson, who is currently working on his own comeback record.
Despite their association with such high profile artists, Jordan insists the band won't be taking themselves too seriously with their new material, saying: "We don't feel we have to do a groundbreaking piece of art for everybody to say, 'Whoa they're deep'. We are a boy band, and we do have girl fans and we like showing off and having fun."
NKOTB are planning their comeback album for September and will tour the UK next January.
