Since meeting at the 2010 VMAs, [artist id=”2545682″]Drake[/artist] has been vocal about his admiration for Florence and the Machine and has even talked of possible collaborations. With both acts set to release albums within weeks of each other, many have wondered if Drake would appear on [artist id=”3081382″]Florence and the Machine[/artist]’s upcoming Ceremonials or if the band would appear on Drizzy’s Take Care.
Sadly, the answer is no.
“We haven’t actually done any recording together,” Florence Welch told MTV News. “Whenever I see Drake, we always just end up kind of hanging out, which is equally fun, but no, we haven’t done anything together yet.”
After meeting at the VMAs, Welch joined Drake onstage in London this past January and filled in for Alicia Keys performing Drizzy’s “Fireworks.”
“I think we’re both big fans of each other’s work,” Welch said. “If we would have the time it is something I would definitely like to do, but we’re both really busy.”
Drake’s Canadian cohort the Weeknd , however, took it upon himself to remix Flo and the Machine’s “Shake It Out” in September. Welch is a fan, and she even has hopes of shooting a most creative video for the remix.
“Oh my God, I love it,” she gushed. “I love it so much. I really want to make a homemade video of it. I don’t know, like, rainbow exorcism. I hear that song, and it makes me think of puking rainbows.”
