Beyonce is reportedly working with 'Orange Is The New Black' star Laverne Cox on a secret upcoming project.

Cox has made herself known as a huge fan of the 'Lemonade' singer in the past, and it appears that the love is mutual.

During her appearance on 'Access Hollywood Live' on Tuesday, the Emmy-nominated actress revealed the news of her confidential collaboration with Bey.

"Yes it's true," Laverne confirmed in a tweet alongside a clip from her interview.

"I am collaborating with @beyonce on a new project. #QueenBey herself. More details Sept. 6. #Beyonce #TransIsBeautiful."

The actress, who plays the role of Sophia in the popular Netflix series, admitted that she couldn't quite understand how the collaboration came about.

"I have no idea," she said. "To be perfectly honest, I’m like, ‘Does she pick out her biggest fans ever and let them work with her?’ It’s pretty amazing."

She also recalled the first time she met Bey at the 2017 Grammy Awards earlier this year, adding: "A sense of calm comes over you when you meet the queen."

While specific details of the project are currently unknown, more information is set to be revealed on 6th September.

Cox was the first openly transgender person to be nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in the acting category, and is an advocate for the transgender community.

In 2014, she became the first openly transgender person to appear on the cover of TIME magazine.
