The 'Turn Around' singer admits he would probably be left in tears if he got to meet his idol one day.

Conor Maynard has named Drake as his dream collaboration for the future and admits that even getting to meet the R&B star could potentially leave him in tears.

The 'Can't Say No' singer, who unleashed his debut album 'Contrast' in the US this week, says he has been a "massive" fan of the 'Take Care' rapper for some time, and "definitely" looks up to the Canadian hit maker as an artist.

"Drake," Conor told MTV News, when asked to name his dream collaborator. "I went through a massive phase of just listening to Drake's music.

"I was just a massive fan of his music, and the way he writes is just incredible," the 20 year-old singer-songwriter explained. "He makes such simple, relatable tracks that work so cleverly. It's so weird how he writes.

"If I ever got the chance to work with him or got to meet him I think it would be one of those moments where it's like, 'Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry'," Conor admitted. "It would be crazy. I definitely look up to him as an artist."

The 'Vegas Girl' star helped the launch of his album 'Contrast' stateside this week with a string of promotional appearances, including a performance of Ne-Yo collaboration 'Turn Around' on popular US chatshow The Late Show with David Letterman.

Conor Maynard will continue to promote his album in the UK over the next few weeks in the build-up to his next single 'Animal' which officially drops on 21st January.
