Drake has almost an albums' worth of songs recorded.

The 'One Dance' rapper brought his 'Summer Sixteen Tour' to Tacoma Dome in Washington in the US on Sunday night (18.09.16) and told the crowd that he has finished "six or seven" tracks, but he doesn't know whether they'll be on a new record or a separate project.

He told the packed out auditorium: "I've been on this tour and I've been recording new music.

"I'm about maybe six or seven new songs in. Just getting warmed up.

"I don't know where they are going to end up or what it's going to be, but I can't wait to come back to Tacoma and play that s*** for you."

The 29-year-old musician's announcement comes after Kanye West revealed the pair are collaborating together.

The 'Fade' hitmaker teased with the 'Hotline Bling' star last month when a billboard was put up in Los Angeles showing Kanye's GOOD Music record label logo with Drake's OVO emblem and Kanye later confirmed suspicions they are working together.

He previously said: "We're just working on music, working on a bunch of music together, just having fun going into the studio. We're working on an album, so there's some exciting things coming up soon."

Kanye held off on giving any more information on the potential collaborative album but it wouldn't be the first time the rap stars have worked together.

Drake helped co-write '30 Hours' from Kanye's 'Life of Pablo' LP, and Kanye lent his vocals to the original version of 'Pop Style' - alongside Jay-Z - from Drake's album 'Views'.

Both rappers have also done collaborative albums in the past, with Kanye working with Jay-Z on 'Watch The Throne' and Drake teaming up with Future for 'What a Time to Be Alive'.

Meanwhile, during a surprise appearance during Drake's set at Canada's OVO Festival in early August, Kanye once again teased the possibility of a collaboration.

He asked the crowd: "Toronto, I got one question for you.Is y'all ready for this album? Now, I'm not talking about 'Pablo'. I wasn't talking about 'Views'. I wanna ask y'all right now, y'all ready for this album?"

Whilst Drake added: "What my brother was asking before was, are you ready if we make an album? That's what he was asking."
