Some would say that Kanye West and Drake are like the Rachel and Ross of Friends.

Following Kanye's role as first producer on Drizzy's 2009 single 'Find Your Love' and then director for the video 'Best I Ever Had', it seemed the musical pair were a match made in heaven. Each other's 'lobsters' if you will.

Their musical, artistic and lyrical minds combined would produce an incomparable album in R&B, Rap, pop music and beyond.

But, alas no joint album came to fruition.

Then, in February this year, Drake was credited as a co-writer on West's song '30 Hours', called Kim K's husband one of his biggest inspirations and invited him to join him on on stage at OVO Fest in August, where Westy asking the crowd, 'Are you ready for this album?' (before clarifying he didn't mean Drake's album, Views, nor his own, Life of Pablo). Surely this meant the pair's collaboration was a given, right? Alas, nothing was confirmed.

'Will they, won't they?' has been the question on everyone's lips for years.

The final tease came in early September when Kan-Yay confirmed that yes, he was working on a joint album with Drake – but how are you meant to trust a man who thinks clear plastic knee-high boots is a good look on a woman?

However, Drake has just dropped the motherload of clues that Yeezy was in fact speaking the truth, as his latest Instagram post of the pair is captioned with the words: 'There goes the neighborhood'

Okay, yes. This could mean many things – maybe the pair have decided to launch a neighborhood watch group in their local community. You never know.

But, the biggest revelation came from Bieber and Ariana Grande's supermanager Scooter Braun (yes, that's his real name) who commented on the image: 'It begins…'

What begins, Scoot? What?

Well, let's not forget that back in August a billboard with both of the artists' music labels was spotted under the words, 'Calabasas is the new Abu Dhabi'.

And, given that Calabasas, Los Angeles is the home of both the Kardashians and is mentioned in the title of Drizzy's tack '4PM in Calabasas', we have a sneaky suspicion something is going down.

It's safe to say we're almost as excited for this album as Drake is wearing a knitted jumper and moustache...
