Ed Sheeran wants to do a song with Drake.
The 'Shape of You' hitmaker joked that he doesn't think his fans appreciate his own rapping skills, but he'd love to get the 'Hotline Bling' star to spit some lines on a track for him.
He quipped: "I don't feel like anyone thinks I can rap, but I really enjoy doing it so -- f**k you!"
"I really enjoy doing it, but in that aspect I wouldn't because you'd be going against one of the greatest rappers in all time, so I'd stick to what I was good at.
"Like, I rap on my own stuff because I enjoy doing it. That's something that I'd definitely put together in the future.
"I think someone like Drake would be really fun to work with. I'd want him to rap though because I love it when he raps, when he's barring."
The 26-year-old singer/songwriter features on the song 'River' on Eminem's comeback LP 'Revival', and has revealed his ideas for future collaborations with the rapping legend.
He told Julie Adenuga on Beats 1 radio: "I think I'd do two different songs with him and choose one of them.
"One of them would be like an introspective story telling thing like 'Stan' and one of them would be like -- you know when he used to joke rap ... like in the shower this morning, I was doing 'I murder a rhyme, one word at a time/You never heard of a mind as perverted as mine.'"
