Laverne Cox has just confirmed the Beyoncé collaboration of your wildest dreams. But we'll to have to wait until the first week of September to find out more.

The Orange is the New Black star casually dropped the news of their mysterious project during her appearance on Access Hollywood, telling the hosts: "I have no idea [how it came about]...I'm like, does she [Beyoncé] pick out her biggest fans ever and work with her? It's pretty amazing."

The star had been discussing her second Emmy nomination for her role as Sophia in the Netflix prison drama and how she met Queen Bey for the first time at the Grammys earlier this year.

Cox—clearly a woman after our own heart—admitted she thought she would completely freak out and burst into tears upon meeting Bey, but instead "a sense of calm" came over her.

"I thought for the first time I would meet Beyoncé I would start crying and freak out," she said. "And literally for years I've been like, I want to be really calm, and I swear to you, a sense of calm comes over you when you meet the queen."

The LGBT advocate added that Beyoncé said the "loveliest things" to her, and even revealed she had watched her epic performance of Destiny Child's "Lose My Breath" on Lip Sync Battle last year.

Cox later shared a clip of the interview on Instagram, and added the caption: "Yes it's true. I am collaborating with @beyonce on a new project.#QueenBey herself. More details Sept. 6.#Beyonce #TransIsBeautiful"

Roll on September...
