Published Jan 10, 2011Toronto, ON hip-hop titan Drake has come off the massive success of admittedly hit-and-miss debut Thank Me Later with plans for a sophomore album almost right away. As previously reported, Drake's next album is called Take Care and is expected to drop sometime this spring. The workaholic megastar has set up some more studio time, recently announcing plans to record with Florence and the Machine chanteuse Florence Welch.
The news stems from Drake's recent two-night stand at London's Hammersmith Apollo. At both shows, Welch joined Drake onstage to replace Alicia Keys for the hook to "Fireworks." The Sun newspaper is reporting that the two have been friends since meeting at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards and have now booked some studio time together for an upcoming track.
No word on if the track was intended for Drake's sophomore effort or Florence and the Machine's follow-up to 2009's Lungs. Either way, we're hoping the talented musicians steer clear of the disposable radio pop pap of B.O.B and Hayley Williams's "Airplanes" or Eminem and Rihanna's "Love the Way You Lie."
