The 80-year-old soul star previously worked with the 'WAP' hitmaker, 31, on a promo for Cardi's Whipshots alcoholic whipped cream and the former's Good Life pies, and Patti would be keen to get into the studio with her for a musical collaboration.

Speaking to 'Entertainment Tonight', she teased: "I haven't had an album out in 20 years, so I'm working on that now.

"It should be out at the end of this year and it's called 8065. I'm 80 years young and 65 years in show business. So that's what the project will be called, and that's what my tour is called. 8065!"

Asked if she could team up with her good pal Cardi, she replied: "Why not? She’s like one of my new best friends.

"To know that she was into Patti LaBelle. She’s like my new buddy."

The 'I Like It' hitmaker recently announced she is taking the rest of the year off.

Cardi wrote on social media: “Anyway NO album this year I don’t care I’m relaxing this year .. Dropping these features I already committed to and traveling and enjoying my summer. (sic)"

The music star recently insisted she always prioritises her career over her children.

Cardi has daughter Kulture, five, and two-year-old son Wave with estranged husband Offset, 32, but following their separation last year, she admitted that she struggles to be a wife and mother at all times because she will always put her music first.

She told Rolling Stone: "The part I love is that [Offset and I] really like each other, like a support system. We’re really both each other’s cheerleader. I don’t really like talking to people. I’m not as social. If I want something from somebody, he’ll be the one that will talk. Because I don’t like asking. We have our own bad stuff.

"We’re from two different worlds.

"Sometimes I cannot be … not that I cannot be a wife.

"It’s just like, my career takes my life. You know what I’m saying?

"My career comes first, then my kids come second. And then sometimes I don’t realise that I’m putting so many things before my relationship."

The 'Bongos' hitmaker confirmed last December that she and her fellow rapper had split up after six years of marriage, but the idea of divorce was difficult to come to terms with.
