Jessie J has revealed she is "in talks" with Drake about making music with the Canadian rapper.

Speaking to Newsbeat she said: "I'd love to work with Drake. Fingers crossed.

"I think he's phenomenal - I went to see his show twice when he was here."

The pair met up earlier this month when Drake played a short UK tour.

New collaboration?

"Everyone else was just like tiptoeing and I was like, 'Bruv you're number one and I'm number two do you mind swapping for at least a week?'" she said of their meeting.

"He turned and looked at me, and I was like, 'Yeah?'"

The 22-year-old singer also admitted she is yet to hear from Britney Spears about a track she submitted for consideration the US megastar's new album.

"I haven't had anything back. Still waiting," said J, real name Jessie Cornish.

"It's all good. I'll just keep it for myself. It's not really me to be honest, her name is in the title - there's a little secret. I feel like it has to be for her or for no-one."

2011 plans

Following the release of her debut album Who You Are at the end of March, and new single Price Tag the week before, Jessie J said she would spend the summer touring and playing festivals.

"I know I've been booked for Glastonbury and The Big Chill," she said.

"I'd love to do V festival just because it's in Essex.

"I went last year, set up my tent and then decided not to stay! Our tent just stayed over night and then we went back the next day."
