Usher and Ludacris are set to team up in 2005 to work on a joint album project.
The two friends, who both come from Atlanta, Georgia, have often worked together but they've never planned to do anything as extensive as a whole album - until now.
Ludacris said: "We've sat down and had a discussion about it… It's going to be hard, but we're trying to make this happen for real."
The project will also link the pair with another Atlanta hitmaker, Lil' Jon, who wrote Usher's Yeah hit.
Ludacris added: "Lil Jon gave us a couple (of) tracks. Nothing is done all the way yet, but we're trying to get it moving. I think the fans will be the real push. As long as they keep pushing us to do it, we have no choice but to do it."
