Chris Brown is said to be a fan of Drake's latest album and reports claim the former rivals are open to collaborating on new music.
In September Drake, 26, whose real name is Aubrey Drake Graham, released his third studio album "Nothing Was The Same" and Brown, 24, is reportedly so impressed that he is open to working with the rapper. In 2012 both artists were involved in a violent brawl over pop singer Rihanna and subsequently Brown's interest in working with Drake has come as a shock to fans.
"He's open to that idea. Look, he bumps 'Nothing Was The Same.' It's a hot album and it's doing well and he's got respect for Drake," a source told HollywoodLife.com.
"He's all about coming out with banging new music and making history, and he's not opposed to that idea. But now, you know, he's trying to get [his own album] 'X' out there and that's all on his agenda," the source explained.
On Thursday the "Don't Wake Me Up" singer posted a video to his website of himself alongside Drake laughing in a recording studio, but within hours, it was abruptly removed. The video caption instantly raised questions about whether the former rivals are working on new music together.
"Breezy spends lots of time in the studio and loves hangin and collaborating with some of the biggest names in the music industry including Drake, The Game and Justin Bieber," the caption read.
The pair appears to have moved past the nightclub brawl incident, which left several people seriously injured, as a source previously revealed the "All Me" rapper is open to a collaboration with Brown.
"[Chris] and Drake ain't got no more issues. They're cool. They're not trying be at war anymore, it's about squashing all that drama and making money and shelling out hits," another source explained. "Rihanna's in another world touring, getting her bread and lighting it up for her fans."
