Akon has a number of unreleased songs he recorded with Lady Gaga which he's hoping to drop.
The 'Locked Up' hitmaker kickstarted the career of the global superstar, who he helped sign a joint deal with Interscope Records and his own KonLive Distribution back in 2007, and he's revealed he has a number of unheard gems which he wants to rework and put out if he's given the seal of approval from the 'Shallow' hitmaker.
He told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: "I've got a Lady Gaga folder of stuff that's never been released.
"I think it will be redone but it will be heard. It all depends on how she feels because she's the boss."
And asked if they plan to hit the studio together again, he said: "In the future? 100 per cent. We're definitely going to do a lot more together."
The 'Lonely' rapper - who has transformed into a Latin and Afrobeats star with his latest music - recently revealed he still sees the 33-year-old star as his "little sister".
He said: "Now that one [Lady Gaga] bumped right into me ... it was crazy man. The relationship is still solid, that's still my little sister."
Meanwhile, the label owner almost got to sign Drake before he became a huge star, but he previously admitted he doesn't "regret" turning him down because, at the time, he felt the star wasn't "as developed" as he his now.
He told BANG Showbiz: "No I never regret things like that, there are going to be some things that pass you by that you miss.
"Unfortunately at the time when I had the opportunity to sign Drake he wasn't as developed as he is today. At the time when I spoke to him he was at the developmental stages and also I had never met him in person.
"His demo was brought to me by Kardinal Offishall, who I was signed to my label at the time, who I had the number one record 'Dangerous' with.
"It was all done in an area of the timing just wasn't there."

Channing Tatum is set to make his directing debut on 'Dog'.
The 'Foxcatcher' star is to helm and star in the comedy movie, which will follows a former army ranger and his pet dog. He will oversee the film alongside regular collaborator Reid Carolin.
Channing, 39, will play Army Ranger Briggs who, along with canine companion Lulu, travels down the Pacific Coast to attend his best friend's funeral.
Along the way, they'll "drive each other insane" and get into all kinds of shenanigans. They will break a small handful of laws and narrowly evade death at the hands of aggressive marijuana farmers. But they'll also teach each other life lessons and give each other a chance for a new life.
Channing and Reid have written the script with Brett Rodriguez and the pair will be producing with their Free Association Partner Peter Kiernan, alongside Gregory Jacobs.
'Dog' reunites much of the talent behind the 'Magic Mike' films. Carolin wrote and produced the first film along with Channing, whilst Jacobs directed the sequel, 'Magic Mike XXL'.
The project is expected to begin shooting next spring or summer.
Meanwhile, Channing recently announced that he planned to move to the British countryside with his girlfriend, 'Price Tag' hitmaker Jessie J, 31.
Channing decided to move out of Los Angeles and he and Jessie now rent a mansion in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
A source close to the pair said: "Jessie and Channing's relationship has been going from strength to strength.
"They still spend a lot of time in America, but when they're in the UK they find London quite intense so enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside."
OutKast, Beach Boys star Mike Love, Patti Smith and more have been nominated for induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2020.
The 'Hey Ya!' duo - comprised of rappers Big Boy and André 3000 - 'I Get Around' hitmaker and 'Because the Night' singer are among 24 names shortlisted for the special honour, which recognises songwriters "with a notable catalogue of songs".
Mariah Carey - who was nominated in 2018 - The Neptunes - (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo) Journey, Eurythmics members Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart, and the Isley Brothers are also among the nominees.
Mike penned a number of hits with his bandmate Brian Wilson, including 1964's 'Fun, Fun, Fun', 1965's 'California Girls' and 1966's 'Good Vibrations'.
In the late 1970s, he began working on solo albums, releasing his first, 'Looking Back with Love', In 1981.
Mike and the founding members of the Beach Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by 1988.
The 78-year-old star admitted he feels "emotionally touched" to have been nominated for the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
He tweeted: "I am deeply honored for being nominated to the @SongwritersHOF.
"I have no words to describe how emotionally touched I am. I have so many loving memories of writing those songs & so much gratitude to those who have loved our music for so many generations. (sic)"
OutKast's Big Boi, simply wrote on Instagram: "OK Den ! #SongwritersHallOfFame (sic)"
The induction ceremony takes place on June 11, 2020 in New York, and voting runs until December 16.
Missy Elliott became the first female rapper to be inducted into the Hall of Fame in June.
Justin Timberlake received the Contemporary Icon award in recognition of his "extraordinary" body of work, whilst Yusuf Islam (aka Cat Stevens), John Prine, Tom T. Hall and Jack Tempchin were also honoured, plus Halsey took home the prestigious Hal David Starlight Award.
Mike Flanagan says he and Stephen King are "actively" working on a sequel to 'Doctor Sleep'.
The director helmed the adaptation of Stephen King's book of the same name, which is a follow up film to 1980 horror movie 'The Shining', which recently hit cinemas, and he's spilled that they already have ideas for the next instalment.
Flanagan told CinemaBlend.com: "[Stephen King and I] are talking actively about what's next, and we have a great idea for that I'm not allowed to talk about yet, but it's really cool, and yeah, I expect there will be another chance to play in that sandbox very soon."
The filmmaker - who also adapted 2017's 'Gerald's Game' from King's 1992 tome - says it's a "dream" come true to work on both films based on King's stories and he hopes he can keep working with the acclaimed horror author for years to come.
He said: "It's been my dream since I was a kid to be able to adapt Stephen King, and he's let me play in that sandbox two times; I would be thrilled to do it again.
"He's been happy both times, which is still like [mind-blown gesture], as long as that keeps up, if he'll have me back, I'm there for the long haul. I'll do as many as he'll let me."
Ewan McGregor starred as Danny Torrance in the fantasy thriller, after the writer gave his blessing to cast him in the lead role.
The young character - the son of Jack Nicholson's alter-ego Jack Torrance - was played by Danny Lloyd in 'The Shining', which was based on the author's 1977 book, but in 'Doctor Sleep' he is an adult going by the name of Dan who, along with his mum Wendy, is still psychologically traumatised by the events at the Overlook Hotel.
Dan attempts to dull his "shining" powers - psychic abilities which allowed him to see the hotel's terrifying past in the first film - with copious amounts of alcohol, but they return in 'Doctor Sleep', and he finds out a young girl also has similar abilities.
As well as this, Dan has to deal with alcoholism and the rage he inherited from his father.
Colin Farrell is set to play Penguin in 'The Batman'.
The 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' actor is in talks to portray mobster Oswald Cobblepot, who is better known as his villainous alter ego, in director Matt Reeves' upcoming origin story for the Caped Crusader, who will be played by Robert Pattinson.
And that's not the only piece of casting news for the blockbuster, as Andy Serkis is also said to be in talks to join the film as Bruce Wayne's loyal butler, Alfred Pennyworth.
As was previously announced, the cast also includes Paul Dano as The Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon and Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman.
Robert recently suggested his portrayal of the titular character will show a dark side.
He said: "Batman's not a hero. He's a complicated character. I don't think I could ever play a real hero - there's always got to be something a little bit wrong. I think it's because one of my eyes is smaller than the other.
"I love the director, Matt Reeves, and it's a dope character. His morality is a little bit off. He's not the golden boy, unlike almost every other comic-book character."
The 33-year-old actor previously revealed that he was "furious" when news of him playing Batman was leaked early.
He said: "When that thing leaked, I was f***ing furious. Everyone was so upset. Everyone was panicking from my team. I sort of thought that had blown up the whole thing."
But the 'Harry Potter' star did admit they had been expecting worse from Batman fans after the news broke.
"To be honest, it was less vitriolic than I was expecting. It's much more fun when you're an underdog. There's no expectation of you."
Zayn Malik has teased his return with new single 'Flames'.
The former One Direction star - who stylises his name to just ZAYN - returned to social media after a month away to announce he has teamed up with R3hab and Jungleboi on the new track, which is "coming soon" and available to pre-save on Spotify now.
Alongside the artwork he simply wrote on Instagram: "FLAMES."
The upcoming track is the first from the 'PillowTalk' hitmaker since his 2018 album 'Icarus Falls'.
All of the One Direction lads have had new music out over the past couple of months.
Harry Styles - who has just announced his second solo album 'Fine Line' - dropped 'Lights Up' last month, Niall put out 'Nice to Meet Ya', Liam dropped 'Stack It Up' in September, and Louis released the singles 'Kill My Mind' and 'We Made It' from his upcoming debut solo record 'Walls'.
Meanwhile, earlier this year, Zayn admitted he felt ready to make his return to the stage.
The 26-year-old star has yet to perform a major solo concert and previously axed planned shows due to anxiety, but in January he took to Twitter to vow to his fans that he was eager to perform songs from 'Icarus Falls' live.
He wrote: "F*** me, I can not wait to get on stage ! Mans got tunes that bang for days ! Haha feelin ready (sic)"
However, he's yet to make his live comeback.
Zayn - who quit the chart-topping group in March 2015 - previously admitted one of the reasons for his anxiety around performing was not having worked out how to do a solo show which felt natural, especially as he only had one solo LP, 'Mind of Mine', to draw on at the time.
He explained: "Like, there were a lot of upbeat dance [songs on the album], and I don't dance, so it would have required a lot of extra dancers and stuff going on, and I don't necessarily want to do that."
The 'A Whole New World' singer wants everything he does to feel authentic, but hopes people don't think he's "arrogant".
He said: "I don't do things that I wouldn't buy into. I try to explain that to people and hope that they understand - it doesn't come from a place of being arrogant or above anything."
My Chemical Romance have confirmed four gigs for next year.
The 'Teenagers' band - who split back in 2013 and haven't played a show in seven years - announced last week they will be getting back together for an intimate gig at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles on December 20, and have now revealed they will be taking their comeback overseas in March.
The band - which features Gerard Way, Ray Toro, Frank Iero, and Mikey Way - will headline Download Festival Australia in Melbourne and Sydney on March 20 and 21 respectively alongside the likes of Deftones and Jimmy Eat World.
From there, they will fly to New Zealand to play at The Outer Fields at Western Springs Stadium in Auckland on March 25, along with special guests Jimmy Eat World, Midnight Youth, and Miss June.
The final announced date will be a headline slot at Download Japan on March 29, where other artists performing include The Offspring and Evanescence.
After the group's Los Angeles gig sold out within minutes of going on sale last week, the 'Welcome to the Black Parade' hitmakers admitted they hadn't expected such a response.
They wrote on Twitter: "It is truly unbelievable to us the happiness we have experienced over the past two days. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for the warm welcome back. We truly did not expect this. See you soon. Xoxo, MCR. (sic)"
The upcoming show will mark the band's first performance together since 2012, and comes almost a decade after their last album, 'Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys', which was released in 2010.
However, earlier this year, frontman Gerard ruled out the prospect of getting back together with his bandmates.
At the time, he explained: "We definitely get offers regularly to reunite - it's a constant thing ... It's flattering, it's really nice of people ... I miss playing with the guys, but I don't think so."
Kim Kardashian West "cried so hard" after renting her family's childhood home to celebrate her mom Kris Jenner's 64th birthday.
The 39-year-old reality star secretly organised the "sentimental" trip to their former pad on Tuesday (05.11.19) without telling her siblings - Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner - anything about it.
After meeting at a lunch spot, Kim told the group of just Kris' children and oldest friends that she had a "surprise" up her sleeve.
She wrote on Twitter: "Today we celebrate my mom.
"Anyone that knows her, knows how sentimental she is ... For her birthday I planned a small lunch, with just her kids and her closest friends of 40 + years.
"I sent out invites with a location where we all met.
"When everyone arrived, I told them I had a surprise and this wasn't where we would be eating."
It was especially emotional for Kim, Khloe and Kourtney and their mom as they shared so many memories with their father and Kris' late ex-husband Robert Kardashian at the house and they were all born there too.
She continued: "Then gave everyone the REAL invitation and once everyone saw the address for where we would be going tears filled the room. I rented our childhood home ...
"All of our memories live here especially with our dad. It's where each Kardashian child was born & made us who we are.
"Growing up, the home had the most ridiculous wallpaper & kitchen set! I remade all of our table settings out of the same fabric & print as the wallpaper."
If that wasn't enough of a surprise, Kim had also arranged for all of their old cars to be at the property and parked in the same positions for the special day.
She said: "We had lunch at the home as if it hadn't changed and we cried the entire time. When we walked out to get our cars to drive there, I had another surprise! I had rented every car my parents ever owned.
"I had some waiting outside so we could drive them to the house and the rest were lined up in the driveway of the house exactly how my parents used to have them parked."
The KKW Beauty businesswoman says they "felt" her dad's "presence" during the "nostalgic" visit and admitted she had to take herself away to have a good long cry.
She said: "This was the most special, nostalgic day of my life and we felt my dad's presence enjoying this day with us!
"I kept it together at lunch even though I cried during the planning process. But at the end I went into my old bathroom, closed the door & cried so hard. (sic)"
Khloe Kardashian doesn't need a partner to feel complete because she is "so in love" with her baby daughter True.
The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star hasn't been in a relationship since she dumped True's father Tristan Thompson back in February, after he kissed family friend Jordyn Woods at a party.
And whilst she would be open to dating someone if it felt "natural", the 35-year-old reality star has insisted she is "totally good" with being single.
During a takeover of US talk show 'The Real' with her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian West, Khloe said about dating: "If it's natural, great.
"But I'm so in love with True and I don't feel incomplete or like I need to distract myself in any way and I'm totally good and happy and I just love it."
The 'Revenge Body' host also admitted that she doesn't have a "type", and instead looks for the person she has the biggest connection with.
She added: "I think my biggest thing is not having any sort of type.
"Like whoever I vibe and connect with is what I want to do.
"I just don't really have any pressure on it."
Meanwhile, Khloe recently admitted she will "never come in-between" Tristan and their 18-month-old daughter.
The blonde beauty admitted it's "hard" to co-parent with her ex-boyfriend, but she'll never prevent the basketball star from seeing little girl, because she wants to allow him to have a relationship with her.
She said: "It's hard, it's not easy for me. It would be easier for me to keep my daughter away and be like, 'No, 'cause you hurt me.' But, he never hurt True, him and I have our own relationship, and then Tristan and True have theirs. And I will never come in-between that, I don't believe in that."
Khloe credits her mother Kris Jenner and late father Robert Kardashian - who passed away in 2009 - for teaching her how to co-parent, as they were "incredible" at splitting parenting duties.
She added: "I attest that to my parents, [who] were incredible co-parenters, from what I know. My mum and my dad, I'm sure, fought all the time, not around us."
The 'Toxic' singer has been working with a fitness coach to arch her back as she believes her lack of confidence has caused her to "slouch" so she's doing her best to improve her posture.
She wrote on Instagram: "Body language is everything!
"The way you speak to yourself and carry yourself can effect your mood .... I have self esteem problems so I slouch ... These poses help me everyday become stronger and it's quite fun doing them.
"I feel so different everytime I do it, cause I'm not used to the feeling of my back being out !!!!(sic)"
In the accompanying video - in which she wears a bright blue bikini - Britney balanced on her coach as he lay on the ground, holding up her upper body with his hands and supporting her butt with his feet, as she moved into different poses with her legs.
She explained: "By hanging upside down it opens my back and it enables me to breathe better and to open up. And to feel better. So here I go."
The 'Lucky' singer suffered a much-publicised breakdown in 2007 and it was recently claimed that she'd have died if it weren't for the efforts of her father, Jamie Spears, who took control of her affairs.
Dance studio boss Robert Baker recently said: "I've known Britney since 1998. I saw her at the height of her fame and saw her struggling when things got tough.
"She was spiralling out of control. She was going through the worst time of her life and needed help.
"Her dad stepped in and gave her the help she needed. If he hadn't, things could have been very different. I don't think she would still be with us today."
In recent years, Jamie has been accused of trying to exert too much influence over his daughter.
But Robert has rubbished those suggestions, insisting he did his best to protect the pop singer whilst she was placed under his guardianship after her breakdown.
Robert shared: "All I saw was a loving, protective father who wanted to make sure she was safe.
"He's done an amazing job. Their relationship hasn't been the greatest, but he just wants what's best for her. I don't think he had any motives outside of taking care of her."
Ron Pearlman has filed for divorce after 38 years of marriage.
The 'Sons of Anarchy' actor submitted paperwork in Los Angeles on Tuesday (05.11.19) asking to legally end his union with Opal Stone Perlman, who he wed in 1981, citing irreconcilable differences in the petition.
According to TMZ, the 69-year-old actor listed the date of separation as May 10 this year - just five days before he sparked speculation his marriage was in trouble after he was pictured kissing Allison Dunbar, who has appeared on his Crackle series 'StartUp'.
Child support isn't an issue as Ron and Opal's son and daughter are adults, and in the legal documents, the 'Hellboy' star confirmed he will pay spousal support to the jewellery designer if required to.
Ron hasn't shared a photo of Opal since April 2018, when he reposted a picture his daughter Blake had shared of her mother from 1987.
He captioned the Instagram post: "Sumthin my daughter posted. Whudisit throwback Tuesday or sumthin? Repost from @blake_perlman using @RepostRegramApp - #parents . . . c1987 [heart emoji] (sic)"
Meanwhile, Ron recently revealed his one big ambition in acting is to land a role in a James Bond movie, no matter how insignificant the part would be.
Admitting he doesn't mind if he just makes a cameo appearance, he added: "Who wouldn't want to say, 'I was in a Bond movie?' I don't care how big the role is."
And though he has given his support to the upcoming 'Hellboy' reboot, he's still upset he didn't get to play the character for a third time.
He said: "I did two 'Hellboy' movies, I invested a huge amount in playing the character.
"I spent a long, long time really poking and prodding the bear to get the third one made and I felt sure ... I felt like we had owed the fans closure and I just couldn't - there were too many people who were moving in too many other directions, that I just couldn't pull it off. If you ask me about it, it's kind of still an open wound.
"I wish everybody [on the reboot] well, but I prefer to leave it be."
