Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Young Money rapper Drake and Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine are set to collaborate, according to Spinner.

Who's Florence Welch, you ask? She's the singer in the band that sang that hit "The Dog Days Are Over." You know, the one in the overplayed commercials for the film Eat, Pray, Love.

After doing a live performance together in London last week, they're on board to work together again. Welch helped out on the vocals for Drake's song "Fireworks." Man, that chick can wail. She's great.

It has not yet been announced on whose album the collabo track will appear, but wherever it ends up, I'll probably be buying it.

Check out the duet from last weekend:
