Singer-songwriter H.E.R — who is halfway toward becoming an EGOT recipient after winning an Oscar for her song, "Fight For You" a few weeks ago — could have been in a band with Zendaya and Kehlani.

In an interview on The Carlos Watson Show, H.E.R shared how she used to play music in a band with Dylan Wiggins (D’wayne Wiggins’ son from Tony! Toni! Toné!). However, there was another music superstar in their midst, and it happens to be R&B star Kehlani.

"Kehlani was actually in our band. We all used to sing together," H.E.R said before revealing another star was going to join. "Zendaya was going to be in it at one point. But yeah, they all grew up together. I came into the picture in Oakland and we used to perform together."

Zendaya released music during her Disney days (looking at you, "Replay"), so this isn't a far-fetched idea.

While Kehlani is known for hits like "Gangsta" and "Honey," she's no stranger to being in a band. In 2011, she competed on America's Got Talent with her band, Poplyfe, wh0 Zendaya also performed with at the White House Easter Egg Roll the following year.

H.E.R (a.k.a Gabi Wilson) was also a child star — she covered Alicia Keys' "If I Ain't Got You" when she was only 10 years old. She learned how to play the piano, drums and bass guitar back then because her father was in a band. Her voice has always been incredible, so it's no mistake that she's won a Grammy and Oscar at this point in her career. See her performance for yourself:

The connection here is crazy and makes me wonder how a Zendaya x H.E.R x Kehlani collaboration would sound. No matter what it is, I know I'd be all about it.
