Kevin Federline's actress ex-wife was already planning to release an album of her singing material, but the record will now include a hip-hop flavour.
She says, "I didn't even know I could rap. That was a shock to me. Now that people enjoy it, I'm going to have a little fun.
"I am doing an album. At first, it was going to be just all singing, but I think we may be featuring Mc Shar J. The album will drop early spring. I'm excited."
Jackson will hope to fare better in the rap world than Federline, whose attempt to reinvent himself as a hip-hop star ended in failure.
