“I’m working with a brilliant young artist who is as hot as you can get right now, a fellow young Canadian and his name is Drake," Anka told the crowd during his acceptance speech. "We recorded something that will be released, out in June. That’s all I can tell you,"

“As well as I know Paul,” Bublé added, "you will never get used to Paul Anka calling you and saying [imitates showbiz voice], ‘Oh my god, that Drake got some phat beats. Honestly. This dude’s flow is terribly sick.’ -- and I’m not joking. That is real. Paul is the Benjamin Button of crooners and he’s just getting younger. His curiosity and his vibe are infectious.”

The collaboration has no title yet, but June is very close, and also when Drake said his album Scorpion will be released.
