Daisy Ridley, Barbra Streisand


UPDATE: Daisy Ridley revealed her mystery duet partner via Instagram Tuesday: Barbra Streisand! "I'm gonna end this spate of pictures detailing my insane weekend with this..." she wrote. "Ummmmmmmmmmmm..."


Could Daisy Ridley be headed to the Grammys next year?

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens star confirms she just hit the recording studio to make some music.

Ridley recorded the tune on Saturday, but is keeping all other details a secret—including who she worked with.

Her Star Wars director J.J. Abrams revealed last week that Ridley not only had a great singing voice, but she was also set to record a song with a "massive superstar."

"I can tell you everyone's guesses are way off," Ridley, 23, told me at the Oscars, a day after the recording session. "When J.J. said 'superstar,' he meant a legendary awe-inspiring jaw-dropping superstar."

She also teased, "I'm being sent a picture that may or may not be finding its way onto Instagram soon" that will reveal her mystery music partner.

Abrams said he discovered Ridley had pipes while shooting the Star Wars reboot.

"One day on set, she just started singing and had the most beautiful voice I ever heard," Abrams said Thursday night at the U.S.-Ireland Alliance's Oscar Wilde Awards, where Ridley was among this year's honorees.

Ridley returned to the U.K. after the Oscars to continue work on Star Wars: Episode VIII.
