Craig David is reportedly planning to make music with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.
The 'Born To Do It' hitmaker spoke with the former Girls Aloud singer backstage at 'The X Factor' live final last year about aligning their busy schedules to spend time in the studio together.
And Cheryl, 32, is keen to work with Craig - who performed with her 'X Factor' finalists Reggie 'n' Bollie - as she wants her follow-up to 2014's 'Only Human' LP to sound "more urban".
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Cheryl and Craig are fans of each other's work. Cheryl listened to Craig as a teenager and also likes his new material. He's keen to help write a track as the timing is perfect for both of them musically - she wants to go for a more urban sound."
Now her commitments to the series are over and 2016 is underway Cheryl is focusing all her energies on her next album and plans to start work soon.
Meanwhile, '7 Days' hitmaker Craig, 34, is gearing up to release his highly-anticipated new album 'My Intuition' this year, his first new record since 2010's covers album 'Signed Sealed Delivered'.
The 'Crazy Stupid Love' singer recently teased she's working on her next record when she posted a black and white selfie, alongside the caption: "Think it's time for the ... Studio!!! It is on 2016... (sic)"
