Read times
The “queen of pop” Madonna, is working on her new album.  She has brought songwriter and producer Jean Baptiste Kouame as well as musician and producer William Orbit into the studio to help with her latest album.

Jean Baptiste has worked for a host of artists as a co-writer including Black Eyed Peas and solo material for the pop band's members, Fergie and will.i.am. As well as working with the Black Eyed Peas, Jean Baptiste has helped pen songs for Rihanna, Chris Brown, Cheryl Cole, Jennifer Lopez and Kelis.

Orbit will once again act as producer on the pop singer's latest, after working with Madonna on the album 'Ray Of Light'. Jean Baptiste Kuame has also helped co-produce many of William Orbit's records. This seems like a promising collaboration, as each one of the three knows how to create success.

Apart from music, Madonna is also dealing with the art of cinematography. After some (according to many) failed attempts to act, she directed the film W.E., about an American divorced woman and her relationship with King Edward III. 

The rumours that William Orbit would be providing the soundtrack to Madonna's new film are not true. Instead, the score will be provided by Abel Korzeniowski, the Polish composer nominated for a Golden Globe for his work on A Single Man, starring Colin Firth.

Madonna's, as yet untitled, 12th studio album is expected to be released next year.
