Queen Latifah is making sure she makes the grade as a sultry seductress on her upcoming standards album, by signing up Norah Jones' producer for the project.

The rapper and actress will work with disco legend Arif Mardin on the as-yet untitled LP.

Mardin produced Jones' GRAMMY-winning album COME AWAY WITH ME and has just completed work on her follow-up, BLUE NOTE.
