The 'Moment 4 Life' star tells Capital he thinks the 'Someone Like You' singer is the biggest artist in the world.

Drake has confessed his love for singer Florence Welch and Adele after he paid tribute to the acts at his recent London O2 Arena show.

The 'Take Care' star made reference to a dancing Florence at his show and made a joke about Adele's success during his sold out gig in the Capital.

He told Capital FM: "Florence is like one of my dear dear friends, so supportive of me, and did a great cover of 'Take Care' and her album is so phenomenal and I acutally sample Florence on my album – nobody really detected that but there's a little Florence sample in 'We'll Be Fine'.

Speaking about his remarks on the 'Rolling In The Deep' star he told Capital how much of a fan he was and considered the Brit star to be the "biggest artists in the world right now."

He confessed: "Well I'm a big Adele fan so I had to make a little Adele joke at the show because she's so successful - obviously in London – but where I'm from also. I think she's the biggest artist in the world right now so she deserves it."

Meanwhile, the Canadian star also recently confessed that he was hoping to follow in the footsteps of Rihanna and make a journey on the tube after the Bajan star was once again spotted on the transport network making her way to see the rapper in concert.
