Canadian rapper/songwriter Drake thinks he and Nicki Minaj have great chemistry together and they could be the next music power couple.

According to Hollywood Life, the 27-year-old rapper thinks they can become more popular than Jay Z and Beyonce.

"Drake really thinks that he and Nicki would work well as a couple and they would rival, and even surpass Jay Z and Beyonce as the new hip-hop and R&B power couple. It's all up to Nicki, though, because he's fully invested in making it happen," a source told the website.

"Drake has been interested in Nicki Minaj forever and they have hooked up in the past, regardless of what they want to share in songs or anything like that," the insider added.

"Drake is having fun being a bachelor and hooking up with random chicks but Nicki would stop that immediately."

Drake and Minaj have known each other for some time and regularly gush about each other.

Speaking previously about their relationship, Drake told MTV: "Me and Nicki have a really playful relationship. When I was on tour ... I saw Nicki for the first time and, like, literally fell in love.

"I've always really, actually, really had a crush on her, always really loved her, and she's always just looked at me as, like, her little brother," he added.

Meanwhile, in an interview with i-D, the Anaconda singer gushed about her ideal man.

"One day I will run away with Drake and get married, but right now it's just a fantasy," she said.
