Fifth Harmony may be on the heels of releasing their third studio album but singer Normani Kordei is already searching for her next project--and it looks like she may have found it. The “Down” singer reportedly has plans to collaborate with rising R&B star Khalid.

On Wednesday, the 21-year-old retweeted Billboard’s article announcing that the two would be coming together to create new music. The collaboration doesn’t come as much of a surprise, seeing as the two have been exchanging kind words about one another on Twitter.

On Monday, MTV News released an article hinting that Khalid wanted to collaborate with Kordei. During his chat, Khalid revealed that he and Kordei, who appeared in his “Young Dumb & Broke” music video, were very close.

“Every time we’re around each other we always have so much fun. She’s such a cool girl, she’s so nice, and she’s such a sweetheart. I’m just thankful that she’s in the video because I’m pretty sure it’s not the first thing that we’re going to be in together,” he said.

The singer went on to say that he would be all for a collaboration with the “Angel” singer. “I would love to [collaborate]. The chemistry is there, so definitely the song or the piece or whatever would be great.”

Upon reading the article, Kordei replied to Khalid’s remarks with enthusiasm. “I freaking love everything about this. @thegreatkhalid you inspire so many individuals including myself. LOVE YOU TONS sweet human,” she tweeted.

“Love you! I'll see you soon,” he wrote back.

Now that it has been confirmed that the two will be making music together, Kordei told Billboard that she is looking forward to working with him. “Khalid is such an important artist and a great friend,” she told the publication.

“He has something unique and special that only he can offer creatively. Excited to see what lies ahead when we connect in the studio,” she added.

This is not the first time Kordei has done something without Fifth Harmony. In February, it was announced that she would be joining “Dancing With the Stars’” Season 24, and the members of the group was there to cheer her on throughout the competition.

In May, People asked the singer if she was considering following in the footsteps of former member Camila Cabello, who left the group in December for a solo career. “No!” Kordei told the publication.

“I mean, we’re definitely all interested in different things and we’ll pursue solo endeavors, but right now Fifth Harmony is still the focus!” she explained.

Singer Lauren Jauregui has also collaborated with other artists outside of the group. In December, just days before Cabello’s exit, Jauregui appeared on Marian Hill’s “Back to Me.” A few months later, she appeared on Halsey’s “Strangers.”

Although the ladies are open to doing their own solo projects every now and then, it seems like they are happier as a group and are “in a better place” since Cabello has left.

Fifth Harmony’s self-titled album will be released on Aug. 25.
