Starting on your album before the winner of the show that kicked you off starts on theirs? That's a sweet kind of revenge.

Sources tell E! News that former American Idol contestant Pia Toscano will start recording her debut album as early as next week. "She's set to start on Monday and we'll see what works for her," an insider tells us.

And when will be hearing her new music?

We're hearing that Pia's first duty will be to start recording possible singles to release after the Idol season ends.

There were rumors earlier this month that Pia was already at work on her album, though we were told that there was no done deal. Artists she will most likely work with under 19 Management include Idol producers Rodney Jerkins and Rock Mafia (Tim James and Antonina Armato).

It's shaping up to be a big week for Pia. Aside from her recording sessions, she's due to collect a $100,000 check for a private performance this coming Sunday, per TMZ.

What do you guys think? Will Pia hit it big? Will you buy her debut album?
