You got the popular people that are always in competition. That’s really what it is at the end of the day. I would love to see them make music together and squash everything.”

Drake

Drake can make the ladies swoon even as an animated character. The Young Money rapper charms the ladies as a woolly mammoth named Ethan in Ice Age: Continental Drift. He asks Peaches, a “spunky mammoth” voiced by Keke Palmer, on a date in the clip.

“He’s a young, strapping, handsome jock,” said the Canadian superstar. “He’s really good at turtle football. He’s very popular. He catches the eye of Peaches.”

Drizzy previously played Jimmy Brooks in “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” but this was his first time doing voice-over work.

“I get to be this over-the-top mammoth in Ice Age, and a lot of capturing these characters is going as far as you can,” he explained. “Because you have to realize that [the viewers are] not going to see your face. They’re not going to see you look awkward and screaming. And if you have to do things that are a little over-the-top, all they’re going to do is hear it.”

His Young Money labelmate Nicki Minaj, Ester Dean, Jennifer Lopez, and Queen Latifah also lend their voices to the animated 3D film, hitting theaters July 13.
