Priyanka Chopra has always claimed that when she would decide to sing, it would be done on a scale never attempted before.
She seems to be living up to her promise.
Priyanka is currently in the US recording her ambitious music album.
It will have several notable international artistes pitching in -- the latest being American singer Katy Perry [ Images ].
We hear from very reliable sources that Perry, who is currently among the hottest-selling American artistes, will join Priyanka for a duet in the album.
Says the source, "Priyanka met Kate at the IPL match when the latter was over in India [ Images ]. They hit it off instantly and even tweeted to one another about girlie preoccupations. Thereafter, Priyanka decided to invite Katy into her album. Katy gladly joined in."
Though Priyanka remained unavailable for comment and her business manager chose to be non-commital, our source tells us that Priyanka's music album will be completed by the end of August.
Thereafter, she will start shooting with Ram Charan Teja for Zanjeer [ Images ].
In an earlier interview Priyanka had told this writer, "Singing is part of my life. My father is a very good singer.Yeah, I want to sing professionally. But when I cut an album, it would have to be something really special. I'll do it only I am completely confident of my abilities as a singer."
Way to go, girl!
