Kylie Minogue has recorded a duet with children's group The Wiggles for their new album.
Minogue, 40, said she hoped the song would impress her two-year-old nephew Charles, son of her cameraman brother Brendan.
"Now Charles really will think I'm cool," she told The Sun.
"I hope he likes the song. It was fun to do.
"I might even grab a shirt and go on tour with the boys. I'm not sure what colour I will be."
The new track will appear on The Wiggles' new album, The Wiggles Go Bananas.
They have also recorded songs with Leo Sayer and Rolf Harris.

I'VE ALWAYS GOT A LAUGH FROM THE ULTRA TACKY ELVIS IMPERSONATORS THAT POP UP FROM TIME TO TIME. WHEN I LIVED IN SINGAPORE YEARS AGO, THEY HAD AN ELVIS LOOKALIKE COMPETITION EACH YEAR, WHICH WAS HYSTERICAL. DOZENS OF PUNY CHINESE GUYS DOING ELVIS IS SURREAL. SINGAPORE'S "OWN" ELVIS, THE USUAL WINNER, WAS A LARGE INDIAN GUY IN THE REGULATION JUMP SUIT; VERY CONVINCING! IN AUSTRALIA, WE HAVE AN ANNUAL ELVIS FESTIVAL AT THIS TIME EACH YEAR, IN THE COUNTRY TOWN OF PARKES.

Every so often, Edward Young sits on the couch in his apartment and closes his eyes. "And then I just pretend I'm not here any more," he says.
It has been 10 years since his partner, Larry Cains, died. They met in London in 1960 - he, a model, was introduced to Mr Cains, a photographer who had served with the Australian Army in Borneo during World War II.
"He was desperately handsome," Mr Young said. "We spent two weeks together and I told him I wanted to spend my life with him."
Now, after a decade of fighting to have the law recognise his and Mr Cains's love as equal, the Sydneysider will soon become the country's first recognised gay war widower.
Laws passed in November mean that partners in gay relationships with serving and retired soldiers will, for the first time, be allowed to claim pensions - opening the door for the so-called "forgotten people" of our military heritage and allowing for more people to make claims that must be paid out.

WOULD YOU SWAP A PIECE OF PITA BREAD THAT LOOKS LIKE JESUS FOR A SACK OF ONIONS THAT LOOK LIKE MADONNA?
The TradeMe online auction shows a photo of the pita bread, which broke into pieces after being put in the oven. One piece, the seller says, resembled the face of Jesus.
"I was tempted to eat it but for some reason I didn't," the seller says in their auction listing.
"I guess what you all want to know is whether it's a coincidence or real apparition. I'm not really sure."
The pita bread piece which measures about 4cm x 3.5cm has no reserve price. The auction ends January 8.
At the time of publication, there were ten bids with leading bid now standing at $NZ21.
The seller turned down an offer from one interested party to swap the pita bread for "a sack of onions that looks like Madonna".
A stone with an image resembling the Virgin Mary was put up for auction on TradeMe last year.

Nude New Year's 'sex party' a con, warn Malaysian authorities
Malaysian authorities have condemned rumoured plans for a New Year's Eve sex party at a remote beach, while police warned the "no-underwear" event could be a con job.
Newspaper reports said the party for the under-40s, to be held in southern Johor state bordering Singapore, was being advertised through a website that asked for 250 ringgit (A$104) as an entrance fee.
"A sex party is against our culture and religion and if it went on, it would damage the country's reputation worldwide," Tourism Minister Azalina Othman said according to the New Straits Times newspaper on Tuesday.
"There are other events organised to usher the New Year which are hip, fun and suitable to our culture."
Party organisers had reportedly said that male guests were banned from wearing briefs to the event, while women were only permitted to wear G-string underwear which had to be removed after midnight.
Johor criminal investigation department chief Amer Awal warned that the sex party was likely to be a fraud designed to cheat potential partygoers out of the ticket price.
"The idea of organising such a party is far-fetched but the state Religious Department and local councils have all been informed," he told the New Straits Times, adding that authorities would be on alert.
