Bebe Rexha can't believe she got to work on a song with her idol Dolly Parton. The singers recorded a duet for Bebe's upcoming album.

During an interview with Metro's Guilty Pleasures column, the 33-year-old remembered the moment she heard the country icon's verse for the first time. 

"We connected to Dolly and sent her the song. A week later – it was so chill – she sent us her vocal, and I cried the first time I heard it. It’s about the seasons changing and also wanting to change for the better, after getting stuck in bad habits," she said. 

The former 'American Idol' celebrity mentor later met Dolly in person and described the country star as "kind and beautiful, inside and out".

Bebe, whose real name is Bleta Rexha, bagged another big collaboration for her new album. Grammy Award-winning rapper, Snoop Dogg,  makes an appearance on the song, 'Satellite'. 

Bebe teased both songs at an album listening party in February. 

"He [Snoop Dogg] called me on FaceTime at seven in the morning... He was like, 'Yo! Check your inbox'. I listened to it and was blown away," she said.
