Drake and Tekno Might Have a  Collaboration In the Works

Drake has been hinting at a collaboration with afrobeats singer Tekno on Instagram.

Following successful collaborations with Wizkid on "One Dance" and "Come Closer," it looks like Drake might have something in the works with another afrobeats star.

The rapper has been seen spending some studio time with Tekno recently, and it looks like the two have something in the works. Drake shared a photo of Tekno in the studio on his Instagram story yesterday, and then another photo this morning of him sitting side by side with the artist, attentively listening to the "Pana" singer with the caption "Tekkkkkkkkkkkk time."

While we're always at least slightly weary of Drake's crafty, "culture vulture-esque" moves—he outright took a whole Black Coffee song, and till this day we still don't feel like Wizkid received due credit for "One Dance"— we're not even going to sit here and pretend like we aren't going to listen to this potential jam whenever it drops.
