R+B star Lauryn Hill has enlisted the skills of hip-hop star Kanye West for her long-awaited second studio album.

The EX-FACTOR singer, 29, and West, 27, have collaborated on two songs on the follow-up to her 1998 GRAMMY-winning disc THE MISEDUCATION OF LAURYN HILL, reports MTV.com.

Since Hill's huge success with THE Fugees and her first album, she has become somewhat of a recluse and only performed a few concerts over the past five years.

Hill's former Fugee bandmate Wyclef Jean has promised fans of the rap collective they will reform once Hill's sophomore album is finally finished.
