Collaboration ... Madonna et Lourdes: "It's So Cool".
Lourdes’ song with Madge
Madonna is preparing daughter Lourdes to inherit her pop crown when she finally retires
Madonna is preparing daughter Lourdes to inherit her pop crown when she finally hangs up her conical bras.
The singer has collaborated with the teen on a recording and hopes it will set her on the way to a successful career.
The track is called It's So Cool and Madge is in two minds over whether to feature it on her next album or the soundtrack to her new movie about US socialite Wallis Simpson and her relationship with Edward VIII.
A source said: "Madonna hopes Lourdes will step into her shoes and become one of the biggest female artists in the world.
"She's the perfect mentor for her daughter and is keen to assist her first steps into the industry.
"Lourdes has a great voice and plenty of character - like her mum."
The pair first recorded the track together eight years ago but it was reworked in a New York studio in February.
The original 2003 song had an acoustic feel but it was turned into a Europop version and released through iTunes to promote Madge's 2009 Celebration compilation. But Lourdes' voice was not on that version and their recording has never been released.
Record companies and film bosses are already interested in signing the teen.
Warner Brothers were sniffing around hoping to persuade her to take on a part in the Harry Potter films a few years back.
Madge blocked the move to make her daughter concentrate on her education, which is typical of her strict upbringing.
There was one point in her life when she wasn't even allowed to watch the televison.
There's bound to be a heavy expectation placed on Lourdes' young shoulders.
Her mum has set some lofty standards and it must be a daunting prospect following in her footsteps.
But Madge's recent work hasn't exactly set the world alight so it could be the perfect time for Lourdes to start making a name for herself.
It will be interesting to see if Em allows her daughter to dress up in the type of stage clobber she's worn down the years.
If she does, it might be best to wait until she turns 18.
Otherwise social services will definitely be on the blower...

Madonna Records Song With Lourdes
06 May 2011 10:17:49
Madonna has recorded a song with her 14-year-old daughter Lourdes which could feature on her next album.
Madonna has collaborated with her daughter on a track.
The 52-year-old superstar has teamed up with Lourdes, 14, on the song 'It's So Cool' and it is set to either feature on her next album or on the soundtrack LP to her directorial debut movie 'W.E.'.
Madonna hopes the collaboration will be the springboard which launches Lourdes on the path to pop success.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Madonna hopes Lourdes will step into her shoes and become one of the biggest female artists in the world. She is the perfect mentor for her daughter and is keen to assist her first steps into the music industry."
And it seems the teenager shares her famous mother's talent for singing and has also inherited her outgoing personality.
The source added: "Lourdes has a great voice and plenty of character like her mother."
Madonna and Lourdes first record the song acoustically together eight years ago in 2003, and it was then reworked as a pop track and released via iTunes as a bonus track for the 'Hung Up' singer's 2009 greatest hits LP 'Celebration'.
However, Lourdes' parts were removed from that version.
The track is not the first collaboration between mother and daughter.
Last year, the pair teamed up to launch teen clothing range Material Girl, which consists of clothes, footwear, handbags, jewellery and various accessories.

Madonna has reportedly recorded a duet with her teenage daughter Lourdes.
The '4 Minutes' icon is allegedly keen to help the teen launch a successful pop career, and may use the duet as a basis to do so.
The pair have recorded a track titled 'It's So Cool', with the popstar currently contemplating whether to feature it on her next studio album or to include it as part of the soundtrack to her new movie W.E.
"Madonna hopes Lourdes will step into her shoes and become one of the biggest female artists in the world," a source told The Sun.
"She's the perfect mentor for her daughter and is keen to assist her first steps into the industry. Lourdes has a great voice and plenty of character - like her mum."
The mother and daughter duo first recorded the track back in 2003, with the original having an acoustic feel, but Madonna had the song reworked back in 2009. It was then included as part of her Celebration greatest hits compilation, with Lourdes's vocals removed.
Lourdes recently revealed that she shares clothes with her mother, despite there being a 38-year age gap.
