Craig David has expressed his interest in working with Drake, saying “the time is right” for a collaboration.

The singer revealed that he met with the Canadian rapper last December in Miami and that they expressed a mutual admiration for each other’s work.

“When I met him in Miami, at that point I was already saying 'Listen, it would be natural for us to do something'. 

There's so many similarities in the style and the things we do,” he told NME at this week’s BRITs awards.

He continued: "[Drake] recognised 'Born To Do It' as a record that was pivotal in his career and I was recognising all his mixtapes that he was doing. 

"Drake and myself, a mixtape, I know that it would be fire. I know that fans would be like "Ooh, you did those melodies and those kind of rides". He knows. When the time is right, it will come."

David also went on to reveal that has been working with Chase & Status and Blonde. 

Speaking of the latter collaboration, he said: “I think that song is going to catch people off guard. It's one of those ones that in a club is going to go off."

Although he wasn’t nominated for any awards at this year’s BRITs, David peformed at an afterparty at The 100 Club together with Big Narstie.
