Rapper Drake is reportedly "hooking up" with up-and-coming British singer Jorja Smith.

The rapper collaborated with the 21-year-old, from Walsall, on his new song More life". And Drake turned heads when he was spotted at a local Co-op, reports mirror.co.uk.

While Smith bought sweets, the 30-year-old posed for a photo with a member of staff at the Broadway store, which was posted online by Co-op manager Nicky Peach.

The artistes spent time together in Walsall after Drake's sold-out gig at the Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham, in February.

During his last performance at the Barclaycard Arena, Drake did a mystery shout out to a girl from Walsall who he bought out on to the stage.

A source told The Sun: "It's no surprise he's fallen for Jorja, she's absolutely gorgeous and an amazing singer.

"But he's been championing her a little too strongly… He's brought her out on stage at his UK gigs and Instagramming about her a lot."

The newspaper claims Smith has confided in friends about the romance.
