Wyclef Jean is reportedly producing Amanda Bynes' debut album.

The 27-year-old former actress recently moved to New York to launch a fashion and music career.

According to Radar Online, Bynes has landed a deal to record a hip-hop album with a major record label called Chinga Chang Records.

The former child star reportedly has a meeting scheduled for this week with Jean.

The pair will apparently be working on her first single.

According to the website, Bynes chose Jean as her collaborator because she's a fan of his multi-faceted career.

"Wyclef is the perfect producer for Amanda's first single, because he isn't only about making records," a source said.

Jean is reportedly planning something special for the star's first release.

"He's a humanitarian and politician, so this will not be a typical album," the insider continued.

The former Fugees rapper is reportedly looking forward to working with Bynes.

He's said to be familiar with her past work and is eager to get started.

"This is something very special. Wyclef is familiar with Amanda's talent and sound, so it only makes sense to have her sit down with someone of his caliber," the insider continued.

The pair are reportedly drawing inspiration from Lil Wayne's Sweetest Girl.

Bynes is meanwhile embroiled in controversy stemming from her arrest for marijuana possession last month which resulted in her brief stay at a psychiatric hospital.

She has also sparked feuds with celebrities with vitriolic rants targeting Rihanna, rapper Drake and anyone she deems "ugly" on Twitter.

Bynes is reportedly healing from cosmetic surgery at the moment.

She recently tweeted she had undergone a second nose job. She has also written about falling out with her family and shaving her head on the website.
