Last year, during a most boorish click-happy session on YouTube, I came across a small segment of what would come to be a massive collaboration between the sultry voiced Tony Bennett and pop diva Lady Gaga.

They sang their version of "The Lady is a Tramp," of course. 

Like Kesha doing Dylan, Gaga and Bennett hitting the slopes of jazz and lounge singing (sans meat dress) could prove to be a monumental occasion for fans of any stripe.

Per Fox News, Gaga has spent the greater measure of the last two years recording an album of jazz standards with Bennett entitled Cheeck to Cheek, set to release this fall.

Gaga was quoted as saying, "You know, it's funny, but jazz comes a little more comfortable for me than pop music, than R&B music."

"I've sung jazz since I was 13 years old, which is kind of like my little secret that Tony found out. So this is almost easier for me than anything else," she continued.

And it's no surprise after "The Lady is a Tramp" surfaced on the internet for Bennett's Grammy-winning Duets II album.

So, be on the lookout this fall for the newest from the budding vocal duo.

In the meantime, keeps your stories straight with the "Lady" video below.
