Earlier this week, news leaked that Drake is working with Florence & the Machine on their new album. That’s not the only British indie star Drake is working with, however: He’s reportedly working with Jamie Smith of the xx on his own album, talking with the Brit about him doing some production work on his Take Care LP.
In an interview with BBC Newsbeat, Drake confirmed the collaboration, saying, “Jamie is probably one of the most exciting producers I’ve ever heard.”
This is of course very firmly in the “tentative” column, but still; bully to the xx for getting this kind of publicity and having famous fans. [RS]
