Fans of Beyoncé and Alicia Keys are hoping a recent meeting between the two means a hot new music collaboration is on the way. 

The Grammy Award winners - who have 47 gilded gramophones between them - were spotted having dinner in New York together.

Alicia was in the Big Apple for the launch of the 'It’s Like Skin 2-in-1 Tint + Concealer' for her Keys Soulcare brand. 

Beyoncé was in the city to support her husband Jay-Z's special exhibition at the Brooklyn Central Library. Alicia was also pictured at the exhibit.

Alicia shared several pictures of her eventful day in NYC, including snaps from her beauty product launch and dinner with Queen B. 

"Starting this week with a reminder to chase your wildest dreams. Sometimes we don’t start for fear of failing, but we never even tried it before we decided it wouldn’t work. Or we let someone’s opinion, or doubt stop us before we start! CHASE your wildest dream!" the 42-year-old captioned the images. 

The 'Girl On Fire' hitmaker's fans begged her to release new music with Queen B.

"@aliciakeys new collab with @beyonce please.. great voices together, pleaseee," one fan wrote. 

Another added: "You and @beyonce should make a song."

If Alicia and Beyoncé do release a new song, it won't be their first time working together. 

The pair collaborated on 2010's 'Put It In A Love Song'. Alicia wrote the song with her husband Swizz Beatz for her album, 'The Element of Freedom'. 

Despite the song getting some major airplay, they never shot a music video for it. Their dinner meeting is also giving some fans hope that they will finally release a music video for the project. 

"OMG! The music video for Put it in a Love Song is coming!" one Instagram user commented. 

Another user asked: "Hmmm… wheres the Put It in a Love Song video?"

Beyoncé and Alicia's dinner was mostly likely just two friends catching up. Alicia has previously described the 'Crazy In Love' singer as her sister.

She made the comment while reacting to Beyoncé mentioning her name in the remix of her smash hit, 'Break My Soul'. Alicia is one of 29 iconic female singers mentioned in 'Break My Soul: The Queens Remix'. 

"We have known each other since the beginning. It’s such a beautiful thing for us to be sisters … having this level of longevity and respect. Shouting out all the different queens that she wanted to shout out — it just felt like such a beautiful sisterhood. That’s what being a queen is all about — embracing the queens around you. So I love it, I’m with it!” she told The New York Post in a 2022 interview. 

Despite their close relationship, it's unlikely that Queen B has plans to record new music or shoot a music video as she is currently on her sold out 'Renaissance' tour, which has so far made more than R2.8-billion.
