After almost three years since Cheryl released any solo music, it's no surprise her fans are VERY excited about the prospect of new music from the new mum.

With pictures of Cheryl working with the likes of Naughty Boy, Nicola Roberts and Rak-Su doing the rounds on the Internet, Cheryl has now excited fans further by posting a brand new snap to her Instagram page.

Breaking her Instagram silence for the first time since December 24th, Cheryl uploaded a photo with the one and only Big Shaq (AKA Michael Dapaah). Making reference to his massive 2016 hit 'Man's Not Hot', Cheryl wrote, 'The girl told me “take off your jacket” ! I said “babes, mans not hot” 😏😂 @bigshaq__official ❤️' [sic]

Clearly excited at the prospect of new music, and a potential collaboration with the rapper, fans left a number of comments on the photo.

One user wrote, 'Yes yes yes👏🏽', with another adding, 'This is just amazing'.

Last month it was revealed that Cheryl is back in the studio, working on her brand new album with major producer Naughty Boy.

Naughty Boy, who has worked with the likes of Sam Smith and Beyoncé in the past, posted a snap himself, Cheryl and 2017 X Factor winners Rak-Su. He wrote, 'SQUAD @raksuraksu @cheryl official #fblock #naughty #music #watchthisspace'. [sic]

Cheryl last released solo music in 2015, however her biggest hit was 'I Don't Care' in 2014. Her last album 'Only Human' was also released in 2014, so fans have had to wait a long time for new music from the former Girls Aloud singer.
