Drake to work with Jamie XX & Florence Welch

Prominent rap dude and Lucozade guzzler Drake revealed to BBC his plans to work with Florence Welch and Jamie xx on his next album.

In an interview with Nick Grimshaw, Drake talked about how he met Florence at the VMAs last year. The duo clicked and they are hoping to work together in the near future:

Last night we went to dinner at the Wolseley and we were all very loud and obnoxious in there. We were all just wasted. It was this weird hippie joyous occasion. But on any other evening me and Florence can get in the studio and do something incredible and we will. We listened to all her new music and I picked which song I really want to get on.

Drake also revealed he was planning on working with Jamie xx on his next album:

The praises I’ll sing most is definitely The xx and Jamie, and we’re working on Take Care [Drake’s second album] together. Jamie is probably one of the most exciting producers I’ve ever heard.

Meanwhile, Florence appeared at Drake’s gig in London last week where she sang on ‘Fireworks’:
