Madonna has announced an upcoming collaboration with Swedish DJ Avicii according to a report by Rolling Stone on March 8.

The pop diva leaked the news on her Instagram account on Friday, sending out a risqué photo of herself cleaning her bathroom while dressed in black fishnets. The caption under the photo read, “Doing some house work after 4 hours of sleep which is why I can’t spell! Oh my way to the studio to work with Avicii!”

As the two have work together before, Madonna didn’t reveal exactly what kind of collaboration the two will be working on, but it may be on her upcoming new album she announced was in the works last month.

The material girl and the “Wake Me Up” DJ seem to be the perfect combination. Avicii has been on a hot streak with the success of the single and Madonna has been busy herself. She recently made an appearance at the Grammys and teamed up with Miley Cyrus in an MTV “Unplugged” concert. With a new album in the works, the ageless wonder is what Avicii looks for in a collaborator because not only is she a singer, she is a songwriter.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the DJ said he just looks for talent, but prefers songwriters.

“I can work with singers, but I get along better with other songwriters because it’s a more creative environment. I’m very particular about certain things. Melody, I’m a super control freak. But rhythms and lyrics, I let go a lot more.”

Whatever the two come up with is sure to be fun. The two last collaborated on Avicii’s remix of Madonna’s MDNA single, “Girl Gone Wild.”
