"Yandhi" has already encountered numerous setbacks; it was meant to drop in November (18), but Kanye announced it wasn't ready, and now the star apparently wants British singer Dua to sing on it after meeting her at the church event he hosts.
"Kanye is super impressed with Dua's voice and he knows she's really hot property in the industry right now," a music insider told The Sun. "He met her at the church service he holds in LA every Sunday and is now keen to get her on board."
Dua's track with Calvin Harris, "One Kiss", was one of the biggest hits of last summer, and the 41-year-old is reportedly keen to repeat the magic.
"She's already teamed up with Calvin Harris and he saw how well that song did commercially," the source added. "He's got a few songs he thinks Dua would be perfect for and is really eager to get her on his next album 'Yandhi'."
The admiration is mutual as the 23-year-old's love for the "Stronger" hitmaker once landed her in hot water with Taylor Swift fans, who sent her threats after she chose Kanye over Taylor when asked to pick between the feuding stars.
Explaining her pick to Rolling Stone magazine, Dua said, "I wasn't thinking about their beef. I was thinking about their music, and Taylor is amazing. But I'm such a hip-hop fan that I would probably choose Kanye over anyone."
The "New Rules" musician has also spoken of her desire to work with a rapper on her next album, telling the Daily Star, "I haven't yet decided on features (guest artists) but maybe there is room for a hip-hop artist to feature."
