When she performed with Drake, 24, Florence, also 24, sung the part recorded by Alicia Keys' in the track 'Fireworks', from Drake's debut, 'Thank Me Later'.
While he was in the UK, Drake also got the opportunity to witness his first soccer match, watching London team Chelsea take on Ipswitch yesterday (09.01.11), which he was particularly excited about.
He tweeted: "Just saw my first football match. AMAZING! (sic)"
When asked who he was supporting, he replied: "Haaaaa ok wait wait I am not choosing teams. I just love the game! Incredible day."
Florence, meanwhile, will tour the US staring in May as support for U2 on their 360 degree tour.
