Towards a Beyoncé / Kevin collaboration?

Just in case you missed the information first time around and are not in the knowles (ha!), Beyoncé confessed she'd like to record with of Montreal in last week's edition of the Observer (scroll down to the very end of the interview), saying she'd like to "go outside of the box" and into indie music... Paste Magazine had the great idea to phone (or mail?) Kevin to ask him what he thought about a possible collaboration - and as expected, he answered that he'd be "fully psyched" and claimed that "most people don't realize what an amazing great singer [she] is."

You know how the studies showed that you're never more than 6 people away from anyone else in the world? Well, it turns out that Beyoncé and Kevin are only one Solange away from each other, as both "blame" her for their recent exposure to each others' works.

2010 is shaping up to be a very collaborative year for of Montreal (or just Kevin - at this point I wonder if it wouldn't be easier to decide that the terms are interchangeable) - not only is Kevin slated to appear on Janelle Monae's much anticipated follow-up to "The Chase Suite," but he also has Solange on the back burner, and Jon Brion will be working his magic on False Priest.
