Beyoncé, who married Jay-Z nearly a month ago in New York City, returned to the studio this week to record new material, PEOPLE has learned.

The newlywed, 26, is working in N.Y.C. with production duo Chris “Tricky” Stewart and Kuk Harrell. “She’s a professional,” Tricky tells PEOPLE. “She loves what she does and works her [butt] off. Right now she’s basically doing three to four songs a day and that’s unheard of.”

Tricky, who worked with Rihanna and Jay-Z on “Umbrella” and Mariah Carey on “Touch My Body, said the newly-minted husband hasn’t visited the studio, but don’t count out a collaboration between the newlyweds.

“It s always a possibility,” Tricky said of a future Beyoncé and Jay-Z musical pairing. “They worked together before, so it may be just a matter of getting the right record.”

So has Tricky, a newlywed himself, offered any marital advice to Beyoncé? “No, we haven’t talked about it at all, but I will probably ask her for advice at some point!”
