Max Martin Hints At Katy Perry And Drake Collaboration

Pop super-producer Max Martin hints that Katy Perry and Drake may soon appear in a song together. MTV notes that the official website for his production company Maratone now lists a version of Perry’s song “Legendary Lovers” featuring Drake among his credits. Martin wrote and produced the song with the chanteuse, her longtime collaborator Bonnie McKee, Cirkut and Dr. Luke.

Legendary Lovers” is one of a few songs off Perry’s 2013 album, Prism, that are influenced by hip-hop. (Perhaps Drake will crib her flow from her sung-rap verses or pay off her vows to be a ride or die chick – who knows.) “Dark Horse” became an unexpected crossover hit for featured Three 6 Mafia ringleader Juicy J, while a “This Is What We Do” remix features rap’s most bizarre goofball RiFF RaFF.

Still, I have my doubts about the Maratone website listing. For one, Nicki Minaj‘s “Moment 4 Life” and Beyonce‘s “Mine” aside, Drake’s verse for “Legendary Lovers” would be his most pop-minded feature yet. Also, strangely enough, the Maratone website fails to mention the other rappers featured in some of Perry’s biggest hits, like Kanye West in “E.T.” or Snoop Dogg in “California Girls.” We’ll see.

Should Drake team up with Katy Perry for a “Legendary Lovers” collaboration? Sound off in the comments below.
