Maynard desperate to work with Drake

The British singer Conor Maynard - who has previously teamed up with artists including Rita Ora, Ne-Yo, and Frank Ocean - is a huge fan of the 'Take Care' hitmaker Drake and thinks it would be "crazy" if he ever got to meet him.

Conor told MTV News: "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. 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.' It would be crazy. I definitely look up to him as an artist."

Conor ,20, named his debut 'Contrast' because he thinks he can surprise people with the array of sounds he included.

He said: "I named this album, my first album, 'Contrast' because I think there's a massive contrast in what people may be expecting from the album.

"I think that if people are expecting a very young, poppy kind of sound, it really isn't that. It's got very kind of urban, mature kind of sound to it."
