The ‘On the Floor’ singer recently enjoyed a brief romance with the ‘Hotline Bling’ hitmaker and though they have now reportedly gone their separate ways, she has nothing but good things to say about the Canadian rapper.
Speaking to Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (12.02.17), she said: “Of course. I love Drake. He’s so brilliant, talented, amazing.
“We made a song together. We hung out. We have a great time. He’s amazing. I have so much love for that boy.”
It was previously claimed things had “fizzled out” between Jennifer – who has eight-year-old twins, Max and Emme, from her marriage to Marc Anthony – and Drake because of their busy schedules, but insiders wouldn’t rule out a romantic reunion in the future.
A source said: “She likes Drake. They’re just busy, so it has fizzled.
“She’s a mom with an insanely busy career. He’s touring in Europe. Who knows what will happen in the future when they’re more able to be in the same place.”
It is thought the 47-year-old singer was alluding to the couple’s split when she posted a cryptic Instagram quote earlier this month.
She wrote: “Timing is everything. If it’s meant to happen, it will, and for the right reasons.”
The pair are said to have become close whilst working on music together late last year.
A source said at the time: “They do work on music together [but are] clearly enjoying each other on another level too. Jen loves the attention and she seems very happy to be spending time with him. Drake is very charming. He treats Jen with lots of respect. She seems very smitten.”
