Country icon Dolly Parton has channeled her inner hip-hop star to spit some rhymes for rapper-turned-talk show host Queen Latifah.

The singer wore a fitted mini dress and donned gold chains and a blonde afro wig for a taped appearance on “The Queen Latifah Show,” and shocked fans by sharing lyrics which paid tribute to her famous cleavage.

She rapped, “Now I don’t hip and I don’t hop, I’d black both eyes with this big top, I know the Queen has got ’em too but she don’t work ’em like I do.”

Parton also name-checked her godchild, “Wrecking Ball” hitmaker Miley Cyrus, in the song, adding, “Hey Miley, I got your wrecking balls right here.”

The episode is set to air on Monday.
