Rapper Drake has revealed how he is a big fan of a couple of the UK’s biggest female artists right now. Drake has admitted that he and Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine are good friends, while he also has huge admiration for Adele.
Drake explained to Capital FM, "Florence is like one of my dear, dear friends, so supportive of me, and did a great cover of 'Take Care'. Her album is so phenomenal and I actually sample Florence on my album - nobody really detected that but there's a little Florence sample in We'll Be Fine."
He added, "Well I'm a big Adele fan so I had to make a little Adele joke at the show because she's so successful - obviously in London - but where I'm from also. I think she's the biggest artist in the world right now so she deserves it."
Drake recently admitted that he had done some work with teen heartthrob Justin Bieber and was hoping that it would be used on Justin’s new album Believe. He also admitted that he struggled to come to terms with his fame and turned to drugs to help him cope.
