After an incredibly strong finish in last week’s "My Jam Monday" on Dancing with the Stars, partners Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev have a lot of expectations to meet.

In an exclusive preview of Monday’s Latin-night routine, Chigvintsev tells LaBelle that they’ll be dancing a cha cha, which he describes as “a very flirtatious dance.”

Asks LaBelle, “It’s sexy?”

“Yeah, it’s going to be very sexy,” says Chigvintsev. “Some clothes might come off.”

LaBelle doesn’t miss a beat: “Not mine!”

But the singer, 70, does promise she’s going to do this dance “the sexy way,” and her 32-year-old partner even sweeps her off her feet for good measure.

Something tells us Lady Marmalade could have another sweet week.

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
