Leona Lewis and Justin Timberlake are apparently planning to cover Dolly Parton’s hit I Will Always Love You.

The song hogged the number one spot for 10 weeks in 1992 when it was covered by Whitney Houston, and now X Factor winner Leona and Justin want to give it a shot, according to reports in The Sun.

A source told the paper: “They will record the track in the next few months and are just waiting for a period when they’re both free to go into the studio.

“Leona and Justin are huge fans of each other’s music and are raring to go.”

The Bleeding Love star is also working with Timbaland on tracks for her second album, which will have a tough job to better the performance
of her debut album Spirit, which sold more than four million copies.
