The Orange Is the New Black actress revealed the upcoming collaboration on Access Hollywood this week, telling the hosts, “I’m like, does she pick out her biggest fan ever and work with her? It’s pretty amazing.”
Cox is a longtime fan of Knowles—she even performed “Lose My Breath” when she appeared on Lip Sync Battle in 2016—but the pair finally met IRL at the Grammys this year, and instantly had a connection.
“I thought the first time that I would meet Beyonce, I would totally start crying and freak out,” Cox said. “And I was always—literally for years—I’ve been like, ‘I don’t want to freak out. I want to be really calm.’ And I thought I would cry, and I swear to you a sense of calm comes over you when you meet the queen.”

Cox didn’t reveal very much about the project beyond the fact that it exists, but when an outspoken trans-rights activist and Queen Bey team up, it’s safe to say something empowering is in the works.
In an Instagram post Tuesday afternoon, Cox promised fans “more details” on Sept. 6.
