Looks like Beyonce has tapped one feisty rapper by way of Harlem to potentially appear on her forthcoming fifth album.

Azealia Banks spilled the secret of her recording session with the R&B superstar during an interview with Shar Reid for ASOS — the ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ creator recently modeled for the apparel company’s holiday campaign. “I actually did something for her record in Miami a couple weeks ago,” Banks revealed. “I really didn’t want to say it because I didn’t want to jinx it ’cause you know how that s—goes.”

As top secret as Beyonce is, the rhymer’s slip of the tongue may just land her in trouble. Banks scored a studio session with Blue Ivy’s mom, however, she doesn’t know if the song will land on the highly anticipated album that’s set to debut this year. “Even the fact that I was considered to rap on a Beyonce track was just… I’m about to cry,” the ‘212’ rapper admits. “It was amazing.”

Beyonce has recorded roughly 50 songs for her fifth opus, the follow-up to 2011’s ‘4.’ She’s already confirmed collaborations with Justin Timberlake, Pharrell, Timbaland and The-Dream.
