David Guetta has worked with everyone from Nicki Minaj to Sia but he won't be working with Drake after the 'Headlines' rapper made his feelings on the French dance producer clear.

Drake, who has enjoyed huge success with his 2011 album 'Take Care', was asked in a recent interview if he could become the next huge star to jump aboard Guetta's chart invasion but found him adamant in his refusal.

'For me, the David Guetta stuff just doesn't work. I don't really wanna go there. There's other artists, that's their sound," Drake told NME.

Adding: ''They feel in order to thrive internationally that they gotta do straightforward, four on the flour, David Guetta, Pitbull music.

''For me, I'd rather go to somebody like Jamie xx and tell him, 'Look, I really wanna turn the club upside down, but I wanna do it with integrity, with soul.''

It was recently revealed that Drake struck up an unlikely friendship with footballer Mario Balotelli on a recent trip to the UK.
