Drake has never hidden the fact that he is a big fan of 90’s R&B. Aside from stanning for Aaliyah, he’s also a huge fan of TLC

The rapper who once covered TLC’s “Fanmail” in a song called “I Get Lonely Too,” would be happy to know that the group’s lead singer seems to be a big fan of his as well.

“I think Drake is awesome. I think he is so talented,” T-Boz told Rap-Up about the “Started From The Bottom” rapper. “He’s one of the special ones, there are special ones and he’s one. His lyrics the fact that he raps and sings and the stuff he says.”

T-Boz, real name Tionne Watkins, also mentioned that the two will be working on new music together in the future.

“I love lyrical content because a lot of songs these days have no kind of meaning or substance,” she added. “I love the metaphors and stuff that he and Lil Wayne use so I love them. I’ve talked to him a couple of days ago and I’m going to meet him and his producer 40 to see what we come up with. I think he would write perfect for my tone and he sings in that register I sing in. I think he’d be a great match. Also its just exciting, he’s so talented.”
