Destiny's Child star Beyonce Knowles is working on her debut solo album with Missy Elliott and Timbaland.
The 21-year-old star told Rollingstone.com magazine the album will be "a mix of soul and hip-hop." She has already cut songs with the Neptunes, including her first solo single, "Work it Out."
The album, entitled "Dangerously in Love," is due out next year.
Meanwhile, Knowles will be following up her appearance in "Austin Powers In Goldmember" by starring opposite Cuba Gooding Jr. as an unwed mother who sings in the local jazz club in "The Fighting Temptations."
She will be contributing to the movie's soundtrack, which will consist of gospel and R&B tunes.
The movie is set for release next winter.
