Beside tapping Florence Welch, the rapper is going to add a Jamaican flavor in his sophomore effort.

Rapper is considering pursuing a whole new musical direction and recording a reggae album. The "Fancy" hitmaker has taken the hip-hop world by storm since signing to rap superstar 's Young Money label in 2009, and he released his debut disc, "", last year.

He's already started working on his sophomore album and plans to hit the studio with British acts Florence Welch, from , and rockers . But the star's also set to head to the Caribbean to collaborate with an unidentified Jamaican producer - and he's keen to turn the experience into a full-blown project.

Drake says, "I wanna do something for Jamaica, because we are supposed to go out there and record after the European tour. I was like, send me some rhythms that are poppin' and I'll see what I can do. He (producer) sent me some rhythms that are poppin', so I'll see what I can do. You never know."

It won't be Drake's first time working with a Jamaican artist - he teamed up with dancehall star Mavado last year for their track "Find Your Love".
