Fans of both Adele and Drake were absolutely thrilled when they discovered the “Hello” singer is a huge fan of Drizzy’s “Hotline Bling” smash. It now appears the pair might join musical forces soon if recent statements made this week by the Canadian superstar hold true.
On Wednesday, Drake was back in Toronto for the third annual Toronto Raptors “Drake Night” at the Air Canada Centre. As the Raptors’ global ambassador, Drake’s job with the squad is to raise awareness of one of the NBA’s exciting young teams. But what really got heads turning was the rapper and crooner expressing his wishes to work alongside the English songstress.
More from ETalk:
“I’d do anything with Adele,” the 29-year-old rapper told media in Toronto Wednesday night. “I’d literally go to Adele’s house right now and do laundry for her.”
Drake was back in his hometown for the third annual Toronto Raptors “Drake Night” at the ACC, an event designed to bring hype to the team with the help of its global ambassador.
His love for the British singer comes in response to Adele’s recent suggestion they do a remix together.
“I really want us to do an official remix. I love Drake. I love Drake so much,” she told etalk’s Danielle Graham in a North American exclusive interview that aired last Friday on CTV.
Both Adele and Drake are currently dominating the charts. Adele’s “Hello” sits at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, while Drake’s “Hotline Bling” is at number three, just behind fellow Canadian Justin Bieber’s “Sorry.”
Drake brought the vibrant colour-changing booth from his “Hotline Bling” video to Drake Night on Wednesday, where fans could try to perfect his moves that inspired endless memes.
“That was all impromptu,” he says of his unconventional and now oft-imitated dancing in the video.
The idea of the collaboration inspired artist Dave Valeza to draw a picture featuring Adele and Drake together, which Drizzy posted to Instagram without Valeza’s consent. Hopefully, Valeza gets the credit he deserves for his excellent piece and the world gets what they’re clamoring for with this dream collab coming to fruition.
