As a musical legend, Aretha Franklin is not looking to stop recording music anytime soon. The soul queen herself has recruited Andre 3000 and Babyface to help work on her upcoming record.

In a recent interview, Franklin announced that Babyface will be working on all of the tracks of her upcoming album along with Andre 3000 who will be working on a few, Billboard reported.

Babyface hasn't started working on the record yet for Franklin as he is currently guest starring with Toni Braxton in the Broadway musical "After Midnight." "After Midnight" celebrates Duke Ellington's years at the Cotton Club back in Harlem. The show will be running until March 30. After his time on stage concludes he will start work on Franklin's album.

Andre 3000 is busy playing at festivals all across the world with the newly reunited Outkast. The duo was just announced as one of the headliners for Forecastle Festival this year,Rolling Stone reported.

The only thing Franklin wanted for her birthday was a record deal for her granddaughter and her son. Both performed during the BET Honors special that highlighted Franklin's career thus far.
