READ: Rapper signs Rihanna's Fader Magazine cover

The Canadian rapper, singer and songwriter addressed the state of his relationship with the music stars he has been associated with at one time or the other, while speaking with Zane Lowe for an OVO Sound interview.

Drake reveals that he barely speaks to Nicki since she began dating rapper boyfriend, Meek Mill, a situation made worse by the diss tracks the rappers had traded.

"I don't really talk to Nicki. She's another person I have a lot of love for, a lot of respect to her and the past and what we built. I understand what love is and I understand a personal situation. She dealt with me how I would expect her to: with class. I would do the same you know.

"There were times I was sitting there, waiting to see, you know, how deep is your love? I have respect for Nicki but unfortunately we haven't spoken."

Speaking on his relationship with Rihanna, especially after the smashing success their collaborations have continued to bring, Drake said:

”We do well together as a team. I think we do great music together … I think [the chemistry] is what makes the records better, though. It’s something genuine there.

"We’re not forcing some story on people. A lot of the music that we make and the energy that we bring is genuine. We have a lot of genuine energy between us.”

We wonder if that energy would be producing any relationships between the pair anytime soon, as Rihanna who has made it clear that she is single, added that she is pretty busy to make a relationship work at the moment.

Then again, Rihanna has been spotted locking lips with Hollywood star actor, Leonardo DiCaprio, on more than one occasion so we cannot help but wonder if she shares Drakes feelings.
