Icona Pop hinted at a new collaboration with Justin Timberlake.

“3 trolls in the studio @jtimberlake,” the Swedish pop electronic duo posted to their Twitter account on Wednesday (February 17, 2016).

Timberlake’s songwriting / production resume includes works for Madonna (“Miles Away”), Beyonce (“Blow”), Rihanna (“Rehab”), Ciara (“Love Sex Magic”), Leona Lewis (“Don’t Let Me Down”), Keri Hilson (“Slow Dance”), Esmee Denters (“Love Dealer”) and Britney Spears (“What It’s Like to Be Me”).

His last studio collection, 2013’s “The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2,” topped the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart and spawned hit singles including “Take Back the Night,” “Not a Bad Thing” and “Drink You Away.”

Meanwhile, Icona Pop – consisting of members Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo – are scheduled to release the follow-up to 2013’s “This Is… Icona Pop” later this year through TEN Music Group and Atlantic Records.

The still-untitled project delivers additional alliances with Ricky Reed (Meghan Trainor), Erik Hassle (Nick Jonas), Charli XCX (Selena Gomez), Patrik Berger (Santigold), Noonie Bao (Clean Bandit) and Sean Douglas (Madonna).
