The British singer wants to become a star in the US so her manager, Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am, has arranged for her to work with the French super producer on new material.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Cheryl will be a top solo star in the US is will.i.am has anything to do with it. The man is so well connected and he sleeps, breathes and eats music.
"He has a studio at home in which he is trying out new sounds for Cheryl. He wants the best and is very picky. David is an old friend and has produced some of the best dance anthems of the past few years, so it's a good place to start."
David - who has created tracks for the likes of Rihanna, Madonna, Snoop Dogg and Blacked Eyed Peas - recently revealed he had made a song he was giving to will.i.am for him to use for one of his artists.
He said: I made a song the other day and it was such a good fit for him and his artists. We're always in touch."
Cheryl has been working on new tracks in Los Angeles, although she has vowed her third studio album won't be released until her team feel it is perfect.
