Queen Latifah to record first album in five years

Queen Latifah is heading back to the studio to record her first album in five years.

Just a day after performing a rousing rendition of America the Beautiful during Sunday's (02Feb14) Super Bowl, the Chicago star has revealed that she is going back to her musical roots and working on her eighth studio record.

The veteran entertainer is currently in the first season of her popular daytime talk show, and she tells the Associated Press that she plans on using the small screen to help promote her new music.

She reveals, "I'm already working on stuff with that (new music). I can kind of interweave that with the talk show.

"It's time to jack another day at the show, give the interviews a break for one day and just perform and rock the crowd. So, I have the best platform to do it."

Latifah last released new music in 2009, with her album Persona.
